Peace of mind

As a follow up to my last post on my journey, I have found a resolution to my turmoil. It was a simple, heartfelt prayer, in front of the tabernacle in a silent, otherwise empty church, in which I asked my beloved Jesus to help me to overcome my issues. I pleaded for peace in my mind and soul.
We all know the Bible verse,
 Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. [Matthew 7:7] 
 I know this, we all have been taught this, and it does happen. I think the Lord answers our prayers when they well up from the anguish in our souls, and not when we ask as a routine prayer. Before I even left the church that day, I could feel His peace like a gift to my soul. Since then, I have been able to manage my thoughts and keep peace in my heart in this matter. Much to the devil's disgust, I'm sure; he thought he had me.

God answers prayers in His time. Probably when He sees that the grace He gives from answering our prayers will benefit us the most.

He really is a wonderful Father!

I needed this perspective. Thank you.
I hope you have a Blessed Holy Week!
