Gracious God, there’s so much waiting…

The Hopi & Zuni Festival of Shalako continues today.

Religion is a candle inside a multicolored lantern.
Everyone looks through a particular color, but the candle is always there.
~ Mohammed Naguib

Gracious God, there’s so much waiting in my life. I wait in lines, I wait for a better job, I wait for others, I wait for financial security, I wait for a doctor’s report, I wait for love, I wait for pain to abate, and I even wait for death. Sometimes the waiting erodes my joy and fills me with dread. Help me find waiting to be the friend that invites me into the spaciousness of stillness. Give me the grace to refrain from rushing ahead in order to bring waiting to an end. Instead, let me find joy in the waiting itself. I ask this for the sake of your love.


This Week’s Affirmation:

“I am master of my being and can fully relax at will,
my mind dwells on harmonious and peaceful thoughts.”
