Awesome testimony! I've been there, trying on my own, the human way of doing something without praying about the situation, thinking that I can do it myself. I used to get to the point of high frustration before realizing that I needed the Lord to help me in a situation. Then, I would humble myself and pray about it, and He would take over from there. Now, when a situation arises, I try to remember to talk to the Lord about it right off instead of wasting energy trying to do it myself, in my own way. It can be very humbling, but it's what I need!
We forget to go to that ever-present Rock first sometimes. But He's always there waiting for us to "ask, and it will be given."
