Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭7‬ NIV)

“You find anything good?” I had taken a field trip group of elementary kids to a crystal mine to dig for crystals and Quartz. I looked up at the little inquirer, with his muddy boots and bucket, telling him that I had found a few good pieces. “Sure doesn’t look like a good place”, he said as he turned and walked off. I looked around me, seeing all kinds of good crystal specimens. Had he stayed in my area, he could’ve loaded up!

Sometimes when we look around at life and don’t see what we’re wanting to see, we simply accept that it is what it is and won’t change. And yet prayer truly changes everything! Just as the best crystals had to be dug out of the deep dirt, some things in life have to be “mined” with prayer, digging and sitting on our knees until we find the answer we are searching for. 

As I washed off my excellent crystal finds last night at my house, I couldn’t help but think of that little guy and the lesson he taught me. My life may not look like much at the moment, but prayer can truly change things. Spend time doing it today! You are loved!
