I wrote this in my notebook the other day. I wrote it for myself because I needed to hear it. Does that make sense? You see, the process of pursuing big dreams is sometimes painful, sometimes discouraging. However, it’s worth it because it means you’re living out your purpose in this life. So we need to be able to refuel our tanks from time to time, in order to keep making our charge! This is the prayer I will be using in 2017 to keep myself energized and focused. Where should I put it? In my wallet, on my mirror, or my vision board? Give me your suggestions by replying to this post! So here it is, and I hope it brings value to your life. Feel free to use it!
Dear Lord, thank You for this heart for helping people. I want to honor You by using it to the best of my ability.
I know it’s best if I operate from my sweet spot. But there will always be the mundane, the repetitive, and the difficult.
My goal is helping people. I am able to endure setbacks, frustrations, even desperation to pursue this dream and calling. I thank You for the trials that make me stronger.
Dislike for the parts that are tough is no excuse to neglect them, because neglecting the process neglects the outcome.
I have the privilege to wake up on God’s green earth and inspire people with my message of hope. It doesn’t matter what they think of me so long as I’ve done my best to serve them.
Let my purpose be my passion, and let it be the fuel to “run this race with endurance.” (Heb. 12-1) I am not alone, but it’s up to me.
Lord, give me the strength and wisdom to see that the joy of the harvest is worth the sacrifice of sowing.
