Prayer

6.3.2019_Monday_Paris

After reading Acts 8-9

Lord, sometimes we go on our ways thinking it is the right thing to pursue only to find that we’ve been working against you and your glorification.

We’re praying all along, but we’re not praying for the right things, asking to see the right things.

Help me God to better hear your voice. Teach me to pray and meditate so that I may be closer to your heart and your will.

Paris Days_Monday

Today’s a day with my toes freezing cold.

I dressed too light for Paris.

Per usual, I’m told.

My mind filled with tasks, and deadlines, and work.

But reminded, for why am I here?/ to rest my soul, alas!
