Here's something I read this morning... "A healthy mind in a healthy body is free to find God." I have found that it's certainly easier to be aware of God in my daily life when I am not struggling emotionally or physically. I know that's true. But I've also found that God can slip silently into the midst of a horrible headache, lift heavy sadness, bring peace right into the middle of torment, and dissolve obstacles like they were never there. Thank goodness that we don't have to have a healthy mind and body before we can find God. It can make hearing him easier, but I think he does some of his best work when he reaches in and lifts us up in our weakest moments.
