"In our earthly journey, we will need answers to questions and guidance in our lives. Through prayer we can communicate with the God of Heaven and receive answers."¬† Clayton Huber¬† BYU Devotional¬†¬† 02-05-02
God is Aware of Our Needs
The downside to being able to easily take things apart is being able to correctly get them back together.¬† This morning I was faced with the challenge of fixing a utility in the house.¬† I had no idea how to fix it, but I did believe that I could take it apart with no problem, so why not put it together, right? In the past I have always been able go do this, no problem, but today even after asking a professional how to reassemble the unit, I could not get it back correctly.¬† It seemed simple enough to do in the first place, or I wouldn‚Äôt have taken it apart.¬†
Finally, I prayed and asked God to help me figure out what I was doing wrong.¬† I had an immediate feeling to put my glasses on so I could focus better.¬† Then I thought it would be a piece of cake. Well, it wasn‚Äôt that easy. After an hour of struggling, I thought that I would pray about again.¬† Well, I received another prompting. Finally, after nearly breaking the unit, I was able to get it completely back together and lo and behold, it worked!
After I was finished, I had one more thing to do and that was to thank my Heavenly Father for answering my prayer and helping me as I became more and more frustrated with what should have been a simple task.
¬†I marveled at how great and glorious He is and of all the beautiful creations He has made for the benefit of His children.¬† He gave his only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ as a sacred sacrifice for me and all of His Children that we may have eternal joy and happiness. I thought that He must be very busy staying in touch with all of His children.¬† .¬† He could have over-looked my plea, but He chose to answer it and teach me more about His love for all of His children.
