There is a saying that I love about prayer and what you pray for.
To paraphrase, it basically says: Don’t ask God for change in you if you aren’t willing to endure the lesson that change will require. I love this because of how true it is. The commitment to openness on this blog gives me the freedom to tell you…more often than not I am praying for patience and a trusting heart. Let me tell you something readers…if you pray for something like those things, you’re gonna get situations that challenge you to develop those things. You ask for a change of heart? To be a better person? You’re going to get situations that challenge you to choose the person you want to be.
It’s taken me a long time to understand that even if I ask, I still have to do some work.
See you tomorrow,
