I wanted to really engage with my city. My home town. And wow. Let’s just say it’s been engaging.
I meet people and I can help them so I do. Then I find myself praying for them. And every time, I realize, it’s me. I can answer my prayer! But it’s devastatingly hard.
The hardest thing to do is set a serious boundary. But sometimes that’s a meaningful answer to my prayer for someone. I wish they could find contentment. And you sort of have to force them to do it on their own sometimes.
Next is answer the phone when you really don’t want to. I always pray please please give me the right words. Next is have the conversation you don’t want to. Ohhhh. Challenge someone. It’s like facing a lion. Or a wolf.
