A New Beginning

Dear God,

Having been without my computer for about a month, I have had to learn new ways of interacting with people and writing. Perhaps we are too dependent on technology, but who would be without our toys?

May I return to the computer with a new outlook, using it but not being too bound to it.

Thank You for this new day. We are blessed by Your goodness, for You never go offline.

Amen.

Conversations with God

Dear God,

When I find books to read that give me a good frame of mind, I return to those books over and over.  Thank You for guiding my selection of what to read.  It is one way that You talk to me.

Thank You for Your constant care.  I enjoy our conversations, with You “speaking” always in silence, and me hearing in the silence the next right step.

Amen.

Meditation

Dear God,

Thank You for the good meditation, just finished.  Meditation is not all of the same cloth, but this morning’s time with You was pleasant and rewarding.  Times such as this keep me coming back for more.

You envelop me with love, and all is well.  May I never forget that it is You doing this, nothing of myself accomplishing anything at all.  I need just to make myself available.

Thank You.  Give me the patience to wait on Your coming.

Amen.

Go to God

Dear God,

I had a bad dream last night, and I awoke feeling unsettled.  The best part of the dream was the indication that I should go to You to solve my dilemmas.  Aren’t You always the Answer?

Thank You for my sense that I am heading into a new era in my dealings with life and all that it brings to me.  I am to “be” more than to “do,” and that is welcome respite.

Thanks again.

Amen.

New Project

Dear God,

I ask for support in my current project, something necessitating a new gadget attached to my laptop computer, a new activity for me, a lot of stress.  I would remain calm and peaceful, sure that you are the real Controller.

You are the real Controller in this life, though You give us free will and don’t interfere with our choices.  When I turn to You, You are right there.

Thank You.

Amen.

Change of Heart

Dear God,

Thank You for answering two prayers that I wrote yesterday but did not post because they were too personal.  You directed my reading last night in ways that I could not imagine, and as a result of all of Your attention, I had a change of heart by this morning.

Your ways are beyond belief.  Thank You for taking me out of a negative place in my thinking and in my heart.

Amen.

Diet

Dear God,

I have been eating more carefully since the scales showed an increase yesterday morning.  And I have been drinking lots of water, something strongly recommended for health.  Thank You for, in one day, showing me that good health can be improved with enough food, but not too much, and enough water, but not too much.  And it is hard to get too much water.

Thank You also for letting me know that the foods that my husband and I eat are right on the beam.  This from a Harvard study.

I must have been a dietitian in a previous life.  I enjoy planning for a good diet.  Thank You for helping me along the way.

Amen.

Soul Journey

Dear God,

When I feel enfolded in Your arms, I feel reassured about my life and the things that have happened in it.  I believe that what has happened is not chance, that my soul has had a hand in the planning.  And the soul is merged with You, deep within.

Help me to be tolerant of the happenings that have transpired in my life.  It is very, very likely that dire happenings may have conspired with good happenings to make just the life that I wanted—for reasons that I cannot see.

Thank You.

Amen.
