Lately, I am really out of focus, and I'm not just talking about my workout, but most importantly is that I began to lose touch of my own life and my future.
Perhaps I'm just not use with too much challenges at one time in life, and it really drains the energy out of me. I was truly blessed when a friend of mine who send me an email with a prayer that he previously wrote as a reminder and strength for himself, after I have shared my story with him.
I'm sharing that prayer here in room8five, with the hope that it will be able to encourage everyone of you in your daily struggle too. Keep the faith going!
I commit my life into your hands, I will trust in you with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding; in all my ways I will submit to You, and You will make my paths straight. You shall supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. The battle, the future is not mine, but God's. I have nothing to be afraid of.
Thank you for a dream, a dream that will take me far in life. Thank you for the opportunities to amass creative energy. Thank you for placing creative and talented individuals, men and women of good character, in my life, how they inspire and motivate me for greatness.
Teach me to number my days, that I may gain a heart of wisdom. Teach me to guide my thoughts with focus, vision and discipline. Teach me to treasure people, to love and be loved. Teach me to pursue happiness not as a choice, but a necessity.
Forgive my trespasses, as I also forgive everyone and everything, including myself. Give me the capacity to immediately admit and correct my mistakes. Grant to me the serenity of mind to accept that which cannot be changed; courage to change that which can be changed, and wisdom to know the one from the other.
If you're so real, prove Your presence to me. I ask for the desire to seek and hunger for you, and that you would appoint angels to guide me to you, and that I will be an angel to others. I ask your vision, your divine inspiration, boundless creativity, insane drive for excellence, a humble heart, a passion, curiosity and fascination to learn, and the opportunities to release them. I ask that you continue to guide me, and in times of despair, to be strong in faith, to find hope and a way out in you. I ask for the strength to run with endurance the race that is set before me, to come before you content, knowing that I have end the days of my life with meaning and satisfaction.
May I be a servant, not a judge; A model, not a critic; Part of the solution, not part of the problem; A light of the world and salt of the earth, that people may see my good works and glorify Thy name in heaven.
For thine is the kingdom, power and glory, forever - Amen.
Until next time, see you around my friend =)
