I almost want to ask, LORD, am I really ready? I know I said I was ready and to challenge me more, but I’m a little scared right now. Instead of asking, I’m actually praying right now. LORD, I know I’m ready; all I ask is that You hold my hand and [insert special someone’s name here] hand. I also ask that You embrace [someone special’s dad’s name here] as well. They are going through some terrible times right now; I just need a hand and someone to cry on for a moment. I’ll be fine! I know You’ll help me. You always do! 🙂
So as I pray those words, I ask you — my fellow travelers — to join me in praying for those two individuals. I know you don’t know their names, but that’s okay; I know they’ll appreciate them anyway. I also ask that you pray for me as I continue my leadership journey. I never knew when I asked to be challenged, my challenges would come so soon! I instinctively know that there is no one better suited to these challenges than I; it just comes as a complete surprise to me that I’m often called upon when there is an emergency. I suppose that’s why I used to think it’d be neat to be a crisis team member in a public relations’ setting.
Anyway, tomorrow morning — roughly 14 hours from now — I’ll be back at work opening the store. I’ll probably be fighting ice cream, getting a cookie cake decorated, baking cookies, and setting up the store. Sure, I might feel a little frazzled from time to time tomorrow morning, but then again I might not. I know I can do this! I really am ready!
Love and prayers, as always! ❤
