Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Hebrews 11:29–30
29 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as if it were dry land, but when the Egyptians attempted to do so they were drowned. 30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell after they had been encircled for seven days.

This passage from Hebrews, and many of the verses following it list things, miraculous things that have happened though faith. We sometimes miss God working in our lives, attributing things to luck or fortune or happenstance. At other times we choose to not even try, because we don’t think that things will work out. What if we opened our eyes to God working in our lives. What if we trusted that if it is God’s will we will be able to do anything.

Have I ever seen God work in my life in a special way?
When good happens to me, can I give thanks to God?
When something negative happens, can I ask God what I need to learn from the experience?

Pray to God, using these words or others as you see fit.
Holy God,
Open my eyes to your presence in my life.
Give me a stronger faith.
I put my trust in You.
Thank you for being with me every day,
Thank you for your love.
Amen
