You Have What You Need
I was talking with a friend a couple of weeks ago who just started a new job. Her last one didn’t end well with hurt feelings, ill will on both sides. After a short break of recovery and reflection she believed it was time to accept another position. We were conversing about how to heal, move forward, let go of the past so that we can embrace the present.
“Will you pray for me?” she inquired. “What would you like me to pray for?” I asked. She replied; “that I would be able to do well, my confidence would return, that I wouldn’t be haunted by what’s been.” I told her I would pray for her to realize that now, presently, she has what she seeks. Her confidence, abilities, talents and gifts have never left. Grief, difficulty and pain can obscure who we are, what we can do, but this doesn’t mean they’ve disappeared.
Even though it’s dark the path is still present. Though we may not see, we still know they way.
