Daily Inspiration: Professional Touch
She likes her dentist to have steady hands and use state-of-the-art dental equipment. She learned long ago not to use a handyman to fix her plumbing problems. And when she pays for an evening of theater, amateurs won’t do; it’s professional actors or she’s staying home.
Yet when Helen has personal problems, her team of “un-professionals” works just fine. She turns to her best friend, her husband, or her mother. Best of all, there’s no insurance forms to fill out and no bills to pay.
Helen feels like she’s in the minority these days when it seems like half of her office is clocking out for an afternoon therapy session. Her girlfriend Jessica describes it this way: “Having a therapist is like getting an ego massage. It feels good to have a professional tell me I’m wonderful, strong, and right.”
Both Helen and Jessica rely on a trusted advisor for a sympathetic ear, good advice, and help finding solutions to their problems. There’s nothing wrong with that. But there is one supreme advisor who should be part of every problem solving session: God.
When you include God in the working out of your problems, you give yourself the benefit of a higher power, greater than professionals, friends, or family can offer. There’s power in you, and there’s power in prayer.
