The saying, “God helps those who help themselves” must not be taken in a selfish way. God is spirit, and when he helps us, it is as a spirit, inspiring our mind with ideas to help ourselves. If you have differences with your daughter, straighten them out and she’ll invite you to a dinner worth years of trial.
In our younger days, my brother Rudy and I hiked a section of the Appalachian Trail. We were in a section far from stores or houses, and our canteens were empty. We prayed for a solution. The skies looked cloudy, so we were inspired to spread a poncho at our evening campsite, with a collapsible bucket under the center opening for one’s head. Well, lo, it rained that night and filled our bucket to the brim. We had steaming oatmeal for breakfast that morning. You have to know how a prayer could be answered.
The word spiritual can mean mental, something you ought to be alert to at your age!
