Prayables Week of April 8, 2017
You want to be happy. It’s a desire as essential as your need to breathe. But it’s a lot more complicated than you think. Or is it? May you blessed with a gift of simplicity. Let simple be your way of thought, the hallmark of your actions. Truth is…a simple lifestyle brings you closer to God.
Who could doubt that the love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege? Certainly not you. You have your priorities straight. May God continue to bless you with human prosperity, the kind that you spend, but is never spent.
Share Your Challenges
Your energy level is on empty. You’re exhausted and there is too much work to be done. Don’t give up just yet. Tap into a limitless source of vim and vigor: God. May you be blessed to call upon your faith for replenishment. It’s a two-for-one deal – God shares your challenges.
The only way to get what you really want, is to know what you really want. And the only way to know what you really want, is to know yourself. May you be blessed to hear your heart, it’s telling you how to be yourself.
Something terrible can happen to you, and yet, the day after this ‘something terrible’, the sun still rises, and life goes on. And therefore, so must you. May you be blessed with wonderful tomorrows that chase away hurtful memories.
Temptation is not the biggest problem, not excess and not even greed. The root of the most egregious sin is indifference to the sublime wonders of living. May you be blessed to care deeply and to be in awe of the everyday miracles you encounter.
