Appreciating God

We need to do more than just tell our troubles to God.  God already knows.  What we do need to learn to do is sit down with God and look for solutions:  What actions to take, choices to make, directions to turn.  In our conversation with God, we need to hear both the joyful and painful aspects of the situations in our lives.  This is what I believe is “turning it over.”  Far from sitting and waiting for God to magically run our lives, turning it over involves turning in a different direction.  Sometimes, that different direction is what allows us to discover and appreciate God in ways we never thought possible.        ~ Father Leo Booth (Meditations for Compulsive People)   ~
