Gentle hugs dear friend, I am sharing a morning prayer – Don’t Give Up, with you today.
I thought of you this morning when I woke up. I did my meditation, said my morning prayer and picked up an old journal, which for some reason I placed on my bedside table last night.
I opened it, read the prayer, Don’t Give Up, which I wrote that day, 7th November 2013 and felt moved to copy it and send to you.
As I read the accompanying journal notes, I sat on my bed, did my Morning Pages and recalled the deep hole I was in at that time and how low and disconnected I felt. Searching for answers and a way through the pain I was going through my divorce.
Today, five years later, I’m in a much brighter space.
I wake up full of energy, excited at the possibilities of the day ahead, untold adventures and joy waiting for me, for you, for everyone.
As I read Don’t Give Up, I breathed and felt blessed to be alive.
I share this prayer to offer you a sign that you are on the right path, and life has your back.
I pray the words touch your heart and give you strength and hope to carry on.
Morning Prayer – Don’t Give Up
Give yourself permission to breathe and allow your heart to stay open to life.
In hating you, I hate myself.
In blocking you out, I block myself.
Shouting and raving and carrying on – it’s just the same.
As I give, I receive.
Help me to hold on to the Higher Ground, to aim for happiness and peace of mind.
To let go of the need to be right, to have it all my way.
Help me to see life through your eyes and understand the pain, hurt and confusion you so clearly feel, yet hidden from me.
Help me to be brave, to forgive and move on be a healer, in thought word and deed.
Help me to climb out of the pit of despair and glowing judgement as I strive to be a more loving, open-hearted soul.
Help me to surrender and say yes to life as I learn to trust and ask for what I want, need and desire. Help me to be the person buried deep inside, to shine my light and get through to the other side.
Morning Prayer – Don’t Give Up Closing Thoughts
As you read my morning prayer – Don’t Give Up, what thoughts, feelings or situations came to mind?
Can you recall a time, when you felt directionless and doubting your ability to have the confidence to make a change?
Maybe you are going through something right now and can connect with the desire to escape the sadness and pain I was in. Feel free to reach out. I am here to support and encourage you to breathe and honour the space you are in.
Five years later, I am realising life is a journey and am sharing this prayer and ask that you continue to pray, hold onto your dreams, trust in the goodness of life and know all is well.
It has been a journey and my prayer today is you will continue to shine, take care of yourself and give your all.
You can do it – one breath at a time.
Hugs, prayers and blessings
