Prayer

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

Amen. (which means: let it be so)

There is great power in letting go to pursue your dreams. Scary as hell, and hopefully equally as rewarding. I'm sending you good juju from afar.
