As I Open Up Doors, Look Within & Let Come Forth, Me
I ask you to grant me the grace to hold on to you for dear life. As I seek only to discover, through the events of my life as they unfold on a daily basis, your will for me. I have listened to lies, believing in the fear-based thought. Rather than the empirical, day-after-day, concrete evidence of your forever grace. I tend to forget about how you let my dear one walk out of the hospital when he/she had been given up, only a few short days before, for dead. I pay no attention to trustworthy proof, the fact that a daughter/son, who on today, thrives, walked for years and years the fatal journey of addiction. I discount miracle after miracle after miracle, simply because it was not the “miracle” I was looking for. I say “Oh my God,” when the prayer could so easily be, “Thank you, God,” for keeping me upright at this time. Give me your eyes dear God, the eyes of discernment, to better look within—to become aware of which behaviors I need to let go of and which behaviors (that are of such precious value) that I need to, with every breath that I take, firmly embrace. Let me remember, I am your precious creation, worthy of the work it takes to release all that is stopping me from displaying the gift that I am. Into your hands I place this journey of self-discovery.
