I love adventures. So when my brother invited me to go kayaking with him on the Arkansas River, there was no way I was going to pass up the opportunity. But because I hadn’t kayaked in a while, I didn’t feel very confident about going on this adventure with my brother.
On the morning of our planned day on the river, I started to feel sick to my stomach. I was nervous, and I felt like my mind was clouded by fear. I couldn’t seem to think straight because of all the negative thoughts that were crowding in. I knew I had to do something to regain my focus and confidence.
In stressful situations, turning to prayer helps me tremendously. In every difficult situation I’ve encountered, I’ve always been able to rely on God and trust in God’s care, just like I learned to do in Christian Science Sunday School. I’ve experienced the fact that I can trust God to protect me, because God creates only good, so I must always be safe.
