Where do you turn?

A friend called me this morning. We don't get to talk often so I wondered what was up. I soon learned.

My precious sister in Christ was struggling to make the choice that would please God. 
She needed encouragement to do what she knew was the right thing. 

Her call made me ponder..........
      Where do I turn when I am struggling with a choice? 
               How quickly do I run there? 
                    Why does it often take me so long? 
 How is it that I forget the joy of having a sister in Christ give me wise counsel and lift me in prayer?

   When my next struggle comes, and it will come.....
           I will turn to God's Word. 
                   I will call a godly friend to encourage me. 
  I will remember all the times I've done this before and found peace and joy. 

James 5:16

English Standard Version (ESV)
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
