“The only difference between a wish and a prayer is that you’re at the mercy of the universe for the first, and you’ve got some help with the second.” – Jodi Picoult
Imagine that you’re stuck. You want to move, you can see the place where you want to be. It’s nice there. You can see that the atmosphere is better, clearer, and you can just imagine how things will be.
But you’re stuck. Your feet are in cement, and no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to get out.
What do you do?
People keep saying to you “You really need to do something about this,” and you know that already, and you’re trying with all your might to get your feet out of the cement but they just won’t move. Nada. Zip. Zilch. They just won’t budge.
Now some days, you feel like you’re making progress. You can wiggle your toes, and even slightly move your leg. That’s great and all. It even looks promising but have you really made any progress? Your feet are still stuck in the cement.
So seriously, what do you do?
This is how I’m feeling right now. I feel like my feet are in cement blocks. The life I have planned for me and my daughter, the one that I’m working towards is within reach, but I just can’t grasp it. I can’t stretch quite enough to get a hold because my feet are stuck in the cement, and it just might be getting away. I’m questioned all the time about what I’m doing, what’s going on and I’m at the point that I honestly don’t know how to answer. I’m trying to keep the flame burning, I’m trying to steam ahead, but what happens when the flame burns out and the steam fades? Then what?
Right now, I’m doing the only thing that I’ve recently learned to do. I’m praying to God. I’m praying for help. I’m praying for a miracle. And I’m praying for others to pray for us too.
Please say a little prayer.
