In my life, I have come to find that many of the things I once prayed for no longer make sense. I used to ask for miraculous healing, happiness, a certain thing to go my way. Now, when I think of praying for health I am interrupted by the thought: "But how do I know that being sick isn't exactly what I need right now?" When I think of praying for happiness I am reminded that happiness is a choice, not something done for me or to me. When I think of praying for a certain thing to go my way, I stop in my tracks. How do I know that what I am currently desiring is the direction I should take?
What I have learned is that there are only two things I can really pray for: strength and clarity. Strength to endure my physical difficulties and find my way back to inner happiness. Clarity to help me point my feet in the right direction.
I quit my job this week. I am going to try and make a living as a public speaker. I am excited and scared. I found myself praying a lot!
Today I pray that doors to my greatest destiny will be unlocked and fly open so that I will simply have to walk though. I pray that God guide me to the places I did not even know I needed to go. I am grateful for all I have and ask that God will help me become all that I am capable of being. Amen
