But there are other days as well, days when I doubt, days when the world around me looks bleak, days when I emotionally can’t handle anything else.
And so I pray.
I offer up my insecurities and fears. I persist in perusing my Savior and trust Him to fill in the gaps. I choose to see the good in each and every situation.
I pray by the day, the hour, the minute, the second. If constant prayer is what it takes, then so be it.
I give my concerns time and again back to the One who is truly in control.
It's a battle that I'm determined to give over to my Savior. It's a battle I was never meant to fight on my own.
It's a battle for joy, for peace, for contentment. The enemy tries to steal beautiful moments from me, moments my Savior has given me to enjoy. And so, by praying, I embrace each moment God has given me in this life.
Do you ever have praying-every-second kinds of days?
