Lest you get the wrong impression, I didn't plan to read the Bible. In moments like this when I'm exhausted & frustrated, I like to have it with me, even as I refuse to open it. It's as if I'm telling God, "I need Your help but I'm too upset right now to sort through all those pages to find it, so proximity will have to do..."
I opened my Kindle, and felt compelled to read from a book about, well, praying. It has prayers for each day of the month. Do just one, God said. It will help. So I did. Most of my tension was worry about the safety of someone I love. My frustration was from the circumstances surrounding her...how people in positions of authority are making choices I'm afraid will cause her harm. As I prayed that one prayer, God opened my perspective just a notch, showing me the role HE plays in her life. He created her, has a good plan for her...and my prayers can be part of helping her stay connected to Him (whereas my worry accomplishes exactly nothing at all). It was a tiny bit of amazing. I was able to see a glimmer of hope, whereas before I'd just seen black.
My first lesson in Project Relaxation? Sometimes to relax, you need to DO SOMETHING. (There's a metaphor here somewhere about adding water & turning up the heat, but I'm not quick enough to find it right now. I guess I'm too relaxed ;) )
