I don’t want to feel tired before I’ve even begun. I don’t want to curl in when I can stand up. I don’t want to be afraid of What Might Happen if I Do. Or Don’t.
So, I’m asking for “Zing”. For the pep in my step… the complex conglomerate of Vitamins B and D, with the smell of orange zest and the colour of sunshine.
I’m praying for the release of laughter that bubbles over when I catch my daughter washing her hands in the toilet bowl, or she smiles at the upside down view between her legs.
I’m praying for a take of fresh air on a morning where the air is so cold, it takes your breath away, and leaves the sky so blue it makes the clouds scatter for a photograph.
I’m praying for the energy that keeps the dog running down the road, chasing the car like there’s nowhere else to go.
I’m praying for the desire to Dig Deeper, and take my morning coffee past the cover page of a Bible, seeking wisdom that even Life Experience can’t offer.
I’m praying for the kind of passion that takes my steps beyond the Dream, and make the Reality better than the Wish.
I’m praying for the appreciation of Time, and what it has to Give, rather than what it Takes Away.
I’m praying for the Words that don’t just make me feel good, but Inspire me to Live with Intention.
I’m praying for the ability to not only write in capitals, but to Live Them Out Today.
Jesus, I pray.
And please, do it all with me.
