"All time that is given to thee, it shall be asked of thee, how thou hast dispended it." - The Cloud Of Unknowing
"The world of oneness is beyond the senses. If you seek oneness, you must strive to go there." - Rumi
"In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer." - Psalm (NIV)
I am less stubborn than David.
I prefer to walk away than to bitterly sit in a space I’m unwanted,
praying down hardship on those who have wronged me.
I recognize my reflection in those around me -
and that I can become the reflection of those I’m surrounded by.
Can I gain wisdom from this poet-prophet-warrior-king?
How did David pray in times of peace?
I haven’t been prudent and efficient with my time.
But I’m doing what needs to be done - if haltingly.
I have felt Your healing hand in my life and heart.
I have felt Your presence in my days.
Please heal and redeem:
my vision for the future
my livelihood and finances
my place in the community of believers
my education and expertise
my role as father to my son
I know You finish what You start.
I know You are faithful and kind.
Breathe dedication, steadfastness and kindness
into the depths of me.
