In the Midst...

A couple of weeks ago I talked about having a word for 2009. Mine was Aware.

Well, don't you know that our wonderful and creative God has been teaching me all about awareness.

I am learning that awareness is about learning something in the midst of something else.


Father God,

  • I pray not for patience, but for awareness in the midst of when I am losing it.

  • I pray not for others to change, but for how I can love them in the midst of whatever they are doing that is driving me up the wall.

  • I pray not for what I want, not to change my circumstances or my ministry or my house but how to be settled and fulfilled in the midst of where I am now.

  • I pray not to lean on my own understanding in any situation, but to look toward you in the midst of my confusion.

What a great way to be 'aware'.I'll be adding this to my prayer journal as well.

What a great way to pray! It is hard to be "aware" of things going on all of the time. I think it is a great word. I need to work on being more thankful and aware of the little and big things going on around me.
