Beyond every problem is an opportunity to learn a lesson. In 20/20 hindsight, we can look back and see things so clearly. Is there something to be done in the moment? Yes.

God is not surprised at what the problems are in our lives, even if we got ourselves into the predicament. He has solutions to every problem and He invites us to bring our cares to him, even if we missed the chance to do so at the beginning, or when things first go wrong, or when they go wrong again, or when they suddenly compound. We are welcome to take things to God at any, and every, point along the way. By doing so, we start to partner with God.

Some people talk to God daily, hourly. Some people talk to God only when there’s a crisis. It’s never too late to start the dialogue. One sentence prayers work as well as eloquent soliloquies. They Lord hears the heart. He never turns away a heart cry. So withere it’s a one word prayer of “HELP,” or a prayer that starts with, “Well Lord, here we are again. We haven’t talked in a long time, but there’s this issue…..” We immediately have God’s undivided attention. Let the dialogue begin.
