Some days I wake up feeling completely clueless. It feels absurd because most times just the day before I had it all mapped out, I knew where I was going, I could see the path and I was filled with certainty. Then morning comes and I'm completely clueless, I remember the plans I had but somehow they don't seem to add up, they make little or no sense. I try to put them all together but it's like trying to grasp air. Soon panic begins to set in; if I don't know where I'm going then what do I know? If I have no plans then what do I have? If my dreams aren't valid then why am I living? If I lose my vision then of what purpose is my sight? An overwhelming sense of anxiety and despair engulfs me but just before I'm submerged I lift my hand and beg God to pull me out. And that's what happens when you try to do it all by yourself, you just might drown!
So just as this prayer above says, God please show me your plans for me. Should I walk alone in the path that I've created for myself, I would be like someone walking in complete darkness using my hands in an effort to make out what's in front of me and falling into every pothole along the way. But with you holding my hand and leading me along YOUR path my journey may not be smooth but my destination will certainly be reached, and there I'm sure to find fulfillment.
And for everyone who woke up feeling clueless, I pray that God hears our prayers and shows us the way. Amen.
Good morning world!
