Today as I left yoga in my super zen state of chill, contentment, joy & awareness, I began to pray…
I prayed for inspiration, but not just inspiration–
I prayed for execution– the motivation and guidance to execute the inspiration that came my way.
All too often I pray prayers of blanket statements without really thinking about the rounded out outcome.
I don’t just want to be inspired, I want to take that spark of inspiration and set fire to everything I set my hands to! I want to let that Inspiration unfold in unique and creative ways to be put to use in my work where, at the end of the day, I can stand back and go ‘whoa, what an incredible day. I didn’t think I had that in me, but it was God-breathed inspiration living through me and it’s amazing to see.’
Today, think of both what you need and what you want to do with it— not just the end result, but that middle piece that is often where hard work is. Embrace the work. Lean into it knowing the work is what makes the end result so sweet, so satisfying, and so worth the final sign of relief of a day well lived. When you lift up your prayers, pray for all the stages you’ll encounter along the journey… because the journey is where your prayers become tangible.
