When life goes bad, we each get to choose how we are going to manage the turning point decisions in our lives. We can go to the good offered by God or the so called good offered by the world. Soaking in the presence of God is the example set by Jesus. We see again and again Jesus spending alone time in prayer when he was managing the turning point events in his life. When we follow Jesus’s example and soak in God’s presence, everything changes for us and for those around us. The problem is distance. Distance from God during the good and bad times of our lives. We get to choose daily. We can choose the world or we can choose to defeat the distance going to the good each day offered by God.
