Take a minute and think about how the trees, the bushes, the grass, appear in winter. Nothing seems to be happening. If you didn’t know better, you would think that the leafless tree, the flowerless bush, the greenless grass are dead. However, during those long cold winter months, living is going on in the tree and the shrub and the grass.
When I feel stuck I often think about Mary Baker Eddy’s message to her students: “Under the affliction in the very depths… STOP. Contemplate what you have to be grateful for.” (Mary Baker Eddy Library: reference unidentified)
I follow this two-step method for getting unstuck:
- STOP. Stop ruminating over the problem.
- CONTEMPLATE. Contemplate the uncountable good in my life.
So, if you are feeling a little stuck in your prayers and would like some MOJO - the confidence and spiritual authority that keeps your prayers moving - try taking those simple steps with me.
