Choices

Dear God,

I have had some disappointments in life, but all in all I have gotten most of what I wanted.  Thank You for fulfilling my wishes.  Help me to choose well for the rest of my life.  You are right here, willing to help me when I ask.

Be with me this day, the first day of the rest of my life. May I make wise choices that are informed by You.

Thank You.

Amen.

Wisdom

Dear God,

I am once again barreling ahead, trying to do things in my mind that don’t need doing yet.

This needs to stop.  Keep me in Your measured pace always.  As You live through me, help me to learn patience and to have the certainty that my wisdom will be with me when I need it.

Thank You.

Amen.

Divine Timing

Dear God,

Just yesterday I saw Your timing begin, once again, to have a major impact on my life.  You let me go along, in patience, for a long time, and then—suddenly—when the time is ripe, You act.  I am struck by Your timing.

Thank You for giving me, once again, evidence that Your divine timing is right on target, always acting in my life.  Always.

Amen.

Touching Base with God

My heart is full of gratefulness this day.  My current project has been completed, and after touching base with You before and during, You were right there as I had asked.  Or at least I think so.

You never tire of helping us through our days.  As You live through me, You are teaching me, leading me to discover, how to love more deeply.

Thank You.

Amen.

Being Rather than Doing

Dear God,

I think You have been prompting me to relax.  At last I am ready to do that, just rest in Your arms, give myself some slack.  Just “be,” don’t always “do.”

Thank You for giving me the encouragement that I need to just enjoy being, the encouragement that A Course of Love makes plain:  be often, if that is also my way of living, don’t always do.

Amen.
