Morning Prayer

The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.

[Exodus 14:15]

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yet in opinions look not always back;

Your wake is nothing, mind the coming track;

Leave what you’ve done for what you have to do;

Don’t be “consistent,” but be simply true.

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes ~

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has nothing to do.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Heavenly Father,

I pray that I may not be so consistent in the small things of life that I will lose the great inspirations that come to the soul. Broaden my life, that I may have the freedom of heart and mind to pass over the failures and interruptions, and with vigorous energy continue in the progress of life.

Amen.
