Dear Lord,


In life, I constantly have to face challenges. Every day, I must decide how to react to each situation. I know that it is in my hands to decide positively or negatively as I look beyond the problem and contemplate the possible outcome. Today, I ask You to help me to be patient, to think and meditate before answering, before hurting, before deciding, before taking any step, however small it may seem, because in the end, each step impacts my present and my future. The lessons learned, I know, can be shared. Thank you for always being by my side, even when I haven’t made the best decision. Stay with me, and help me to trust in Your wisdom and providence.


“…Show me where I should walk, for I give myself to you.” Psalm 143:8
