I’ve noticed myself falling into a bad habit. Sometimes, instead of talking to God, I open my laptop.
Part of the problem is that I do need the computer to work, so it’s always there.
Part of the problem is that the web does in fact have answers and advice about a lot of my questions.
But the biggest part of the problem is that distraction is easier than prayer. It is easier to let a screen soothe my stress than to take the time to calm my heart and direct it to God.
So here’s my advice: Stop reading this. Pray, instead.
When coming from a place of fear, finding just one blessing changes everything.
When anxiety’s got you in its grip, it’s hard to avoid worrying. But there's a technique that can help. I call it “breathing prayer.”
