Dear God, some days hence, I will be called upon to expend great effort. I anticipate this day, a day which I cannot evade, with fear. Worrying about this future day robs me here, now, in this day.

Today spreads before me, a banquet of adventure and novelty, yet I barely see it. I am transfixed on some later time.

Who knows what is to happen tomorrow? That day will arrive of its own accord.

Lord, let me look to this day as your servant. Let me listen for your commands today – let me not be distracted by trying to live in the future. That way lies madness.

Lord, thy will be done. Let me act as you impel, let me respond as you call, let me walk forth as you beckon.

(Letter #1272)
