Some of this may look familiar – it is yesterday’s post with valuable additions prompted by two CP contributors (in red font below)
The Merton Prayer shows up HERE on the Yale Divinity School webpage under “Seize the Day: Vocation, Calling, Work.” It’s wonderful commentary, including these important sections
… and the fact that I think I am following your will
does not mean that I am actually doing so……But I believe that the desire to please you
does in fact please you…
May we all find trust and minimal/no fear in the midst of our exploration, filled with confidence that we are pleasing God by our Spirit-led, prayerful explorations. Carpe diem!
Where will your explorations take you in 2022? HERE is fitting prose from L.R. Knost, with advice on how to proceed along life’s path, including a perspective of life as “breathtakingly beautiful”…
Enjoy the day, filled with the exploratory Spirit
P.S. And on a lighter note, kudos to Calvin & Hobbes (Bill Watterson) for the exploratory perspective HERE
