Self Portrait Tuesday: Self Exploration #4

Prayer

Lately I feel like I've been going through a spiritual identity crisis. I'm searching to feel whole and peaceful in my walk with God. I haven't felt it in awhile. I'm sure it has to do with me and my lack of prayer. Prayer really helps me feel stronger spiritually. Prayer for me means just trying to connect with God during a quiet time. Sometimes it means saying nothing at all, but just clearing my mind and just sitting quietly with a power bigger than myself.

I've been a Christian my entire life - and prayer is my #1 difficulty. I can't explain why - it just is. To anyone else I'm a talker - and could talk all day and all night. But for some reason, prayer has always been a struggle. Thanks for this intimate glimpse of you - it spoke to me.

I love your honesty (both in your words and your photo)! I think for me, getting myself to a quiet and still place is one of the hardest challenges. There are always so many distractions...and not always bad distractions...but disctractions nonetheless. It's my lifeline...and I ignore it. Thanks again for your words!

I've been meaning to comment on this picture since the day you posted it. I love it. I hestitate to say its my favorite, because I think I say that too often, but really, I LOVE it, and it is. This photo has been in my mind many times through my day, reminding me of where I need to be, what the attitude of my heart needs to be. It is an amazing shot. I love your honesty.

Great post~Thanks for sharing!!! I am not an everyday religious person, but I feel very open with God...and so much more when I pray...it gives me the chance to let things go that I shouldn't be holding onto anymore...I just don't understand why I put praying and meditating off and make excuses about not having time! I need balance! Thank for reminding me!
