Do you think if I had made my bed this morning that my day would have been less messy? Is there a correlation between how we begin our day and how our day unfolds? Or, is there just nothing we can do to avoid the mess? Because, I am telling you that today was quite messy. The kind of messy that quickly highlighted the fact that I have done absolutely nothing to uphold my commitment to 365 days of action.
Yep, you’ve guessed it. Five days have come and gone since my 41st birthday and I have done nothing out of the ordinary that could be considered extraordinary. How is it possible that I have utilized zero of the 200 action words that I so proudly claimed as my guide to enlightenment? Is it possible that I am afraid of change or how great life could be if I chose to maximize my potential each day?
So, today I am choosing my first action word, PRAYING. I am choosing to end this evening in prayer. And, I am choosing to begin each day in prayer. I am choosing to pray without ceasing and to be in constant communication with God, my Father.
Lord God, I thank you for your grace and your mercy. I thank you for this opportunity to share my life and to document my journey to self-discovery. I pray that you will cover me as I embark on this new way of living. I pray for discernment to know your will, wisdom to do your will, and the discipline to be obedient to your will. I pray that your truth is revealed in my life. I pray that you will transform me into the woman you have always desired me to be. Lord God, I pray that my journey will be a blessing to others and bring glory to your kingdom. I pray that you will form a community of believers who are passionate about you and living according to your will. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
