Prayables Week of Blessings April 1, 2017
Cherish the time when you first realize you’ve woken up but haven’t opened your eyes yet. It’s God time. Stretch out your body and wiggle your toes. Pray. Praise. Reflect. May you be blessed with an awakening of gratitude for the gift of another glorious God-given day.
Change is Gain
Just maybe you’re not afraid of change…rather, you’re frightened by the idea of loss. Uncertainty is a busy emotion. It swirls and twirls, dips and dives into uncharted territory that creates fear. May you be blessed to welcome change. Be certain of this: Change is gain and good for the soul.
You are Enough
You come home, make some tea, sit down in your armchair and all around there’s silence. You decide for yourself whether that’s loneliness or freedom. May you be blessed to enjoy your own company without want for something or someone better to come along. You are enough.
Take a look at the world as a connected family, rather than as a walled off collection of circles, cities, and countries. When you do, you’ll realize how much you all have in common. May you be blessed with family so large and so far-reaching that wherever you go, in body or spirit, you belong.
A ship doesn’t sink because of the water around it. The ship sinks because the water gets inside it. May you be blessed with contentment, even when you are surrounded by overwhelming external forces. Don’t let what’s happening around you, bring you down.
Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart. May you be blessed with joy so exquisite, words can not describe it.
