Today, with your help,
I release ruminating on what I can’t control.
Today, with your help, I will welcome what is –
not in resignation,
but in trust.
This, too, can be an instrument in my transformation.
Life won’t always be this way.
And maybe, just maybe, I need this
in order to get where I’m going.
Today, rather than taking consensus
from everything and everyone around me
about what I need to do,
I will stop.
I will let myself be in that uncomfortable quiet.
I will do my deepest listening for the most important voice –
the Voice within.
And I will realize I have my answer.
I can choose these things today, God,
because these are your promises –
to handle what I can’t,
to use what I’d rather not endure,
to give me the exact wisdom I need for each choice.
So I say thanks, praise, and yes.
