This piece is completely amazing.
I'm getting ready to make my temporary Carmelite vows and I'm so frustrated that all this extra stress from the move is "interfering" with my prayer life. I keep thinking "God, why is all this happening now---right when I'm supposed to be concentrating more on You?"
This insight is so cool. What if all this "extra stress" is God's way of calling me INTO a deeper prayer life, rather than simply being an unwanted distraction from it?
