I have a close family member struggling right now. I have had rough times in my life and surely not immune, yet to watch someone i love go through is hard. No reasoning with this person. I've probably driven my daddy close to crazy venting to Him about it.
Ultimately as unreligious as I am, found myself turning to my spiritual faith. I've believed in God since a little girl. I used to pray at night for my family, extended family, friends, teachers and the whole world. I was slightly OCD and anxious too, so never wanted to leave anyone out. Lol ;-)
God is present. And times when I am helpless to help as much as I wish I could, God calms the waters.
I tell my daddy he is my anchor. He is calm and patient. And he helps hold me steady. God calms the waters and my daddy is like a human version of that.
Father in heaven, daddy on earth. Lucky and blessed girl.
