Matched my mood perfectly when I snapped this today. Long, dark, and dreary; hours on the road fighting heavy traffic and the elements. Then I realize that there is a silver lining to every cloud, a light at the end of tunnel, and the sun will come out tomorrow.
I don’t really read a lot of spiritual books, but this one caught my eye as it was more about encouragement and inspiration than proselytizing.
And since I’ve been trying to piece my life one by one this past year, I thought I could use some encouragement from deep within.
As the title says this is a collection of prayers that comes from the heart of a teenage boy—who doesn’t seem to be different than other teenagers. He still has the same hopes, dreams, and fears that anyone of any age has.
Thus, I’ve been getting up in the morning and reading a prayer as I silently meditate and think about what lies ahead and how I’m going to accomplish a set of goals for the day. I feel the prose and words and realize that I’m not only one who has an imperfect life, but how I deal with those imperfections and flaws will strengthen my character.
Having those few moments to yourself before beginning your day– are fundamental in getting things back on track and relieving the stress I feel in going through another 24 hours, without him or with another obstacle in my way.
Strength and Power comes from within, and Michael Beas’s book will help you find a little of it each day.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishing. — Anaïs Nin
