OUT OF A RUT
New job, new school year, new marriage, new home—or perhaps just the simple need for a fresh perspective on life—all of it inspired the theme of this week's Sentinel.
Nobody likes being stuck in a rut. And while it may seem like a new activity or the beginning of a new event in our lives is the catalyst for getting out of that rut, our thinking plays a pretty big part in the freshness we crave, too. Sometimes what's really needed is simply a fresh start to our prayers!
I recall a time when I'd been praying about a situation and it seemed like my prayers were on "rerun." Every day my agenda was the same: Pray about that situation. But what eventually occurred to me was that I needed to stop focusing on the need for healing, and just live my prayers. No more agenda—just a fresh perspective of God's ongoing goodness in my life. That turned out to be just what was needed. And healing came.
