Sometimes it’s hard to know what to expect from a spiritually-centered work life. Should it help us be at peace with our current situation or should it inspire us to take on new goals? I used to think that having clarity around a calling was the only sign that I was on the right path. I thought I was meant to pursue goal after goal, without ever taking a significant pause to incubate a new understanding and seek clarity on where to go next.
But what’s more important–the plan or the execution of the plan? Obviously, both are important. Yet, I found myself so ready to execute that I didn’t want to wait for the vision to fully take shape.
Seeking clarity takes time.
This week’s intention
Seeking clarity may sound like an easy task, but it is only realized when we strengthen our ability to patiently wait. And waiting is hard work. Working with a strong spiritual vision (even when pursuing a difficult goal) will always be easier than waiting for the fog of discernment to clear.
There is an almost addictive thrill in setting and achieving goals, but we are not meant to live in constant pursuit. Seeking clarity tests our ability to be still and live in peace. Do you believe that your highest work is worth the wait?
My intention is to wait patiently for inspiration and direction.
This week, meditate and pray on your ability to seek and wait for clarity. Journal on the following questions:
- Do I trust that clarity will eventually come?
- Do I believe that my waiting has a purpose?
See you next week!
