Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.
Psalms 25:4 ESV
Teach me . . .
I wake with a prayer winding its way through my mind.
Two simple words, acknowledging the truth that I don’t have all the answers. Humbling.
Empowering too, because I can let go of any illusions that I do. The older I get the more I know that I don’t know. I think that’s okay—good even.
Enough for today, that’s all I need. Moment by moment, hour by hour. Making plans, setting goals, that’s all okay but this morning I’m just asking for my daily portion.
Give me wisdom in this thing . . .
Stop. Ask. Listen. Every time You come through I’m in awe.
I remind myself that being still is the better thing. I can’t hear the wisdom in the wind so I take shelter and listen with intention and there it is. That whisper. That wisdom.
Thank you . . .
