I took my kiddos to the doctor lately, a trip we all look so forward too...but it's necessary, so we go. While there, he performed this little test:

and my daughter's leg went flying.
She didn't think about it. It was a reflex. That is because a reflex, as defined in the dictionary, is an action "performed without conscious thought as an automatic response to a stimulus". My Little didn't put any thought into her reaction, her body was conditioned to react the way it did.
Made me think. When I run into tough times in life or moments where I'm at a loss what to do, what is my spiritual reflex? Do I reach for my Bible? Hit my knees in prayer? Seek God's wisdom? Or do I fold under pressure and stress?
What about you?
Because we all have moments where life is hard. Sometimes it can seem to hit us from all angles, and the only way we'll make it through is if our reflex is to reach for God. No thought, no hesitation, but an immediate response to cling to Him.
And He'll be there. Every time.
