This morning on my way to work, I prayed. I prayed for my coworkers. I prayed for myself. I am praying for my life here. I want God to make my path, the part that is right in front of my feet at this very moment, clear. I want Him to illuminate my steps.
I can’t say that I know exactly where I am going at the moment. What I can say is that God showed me a little bit more about my coworkers today than He did yesterday.
I hope that I am starting a journey in which I lean not on my own understanding. I truly pray that His joy be my strength. I pray that He place His armor over me.
I read over half of Seth Godin’s The Dip last night. What a great book. It’s a wee little book, chock full of wisdom. The thing that I love about the book is that it is so readable, so full of information that challenges the heck out of me and so palpable. I don’t know if that makes any sense to anyone, but it makes sense in my beady little head 🙂 If you are reading this, thank you Seth Godin for making me look at my successes and failures in a new way. And you have challenged me to really examine where I am to determine if this is “the dip” period of the job or a cul de sac. I will know the answer to that question and many more shortly.
(And I am aware that I am probably the last person in the blogosphere who has reviewed this book.)
