** Flashback Goodie – I love this prayer…couldn’t help but share this blog I wrote 5 years ago! 5 years…so much has been done on this healing journey and still so much remains but I am blessed for every single step taken along the way. Hold onto this prayer with longing to look back in five years and say to yourself, “You are amazing, look at what you’ve accomplished.” **
I’m sorry. I am not in the mood to be clever and I see that I possibly failed God today at ‘showing up’…though most of the day was fine and without hitch…but why is it one unresolved argument that lasts 10 minutes bring down an entire 14 hour day? This is when I go inward and ask God for strength.
So, instead of leaving with one sentence I want to share the prayer I’m about to share with a few thousand teenagers this weekend…and one that I find very appropriate for me at this very moment:
My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.
But I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.
And I know that, if I do this, You will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust You always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for You are ever with me, and You will never leave me to face my perils alone.
I pray it helps you too.
