Prayer in the car and The Dip

the-dip.jpgThis 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.)
