Inspirations by Francis Durisseau
As the month of April comes to a close, we can look back at what was – both the good and the bad – or we can look ahead to May and all it might bring. I want to look back on some things but also feel the importance of looking ahead at what might be.
May I remember all the good. May I learn and grow from the things that weren’t so good. May I not let fear enclose me in its powerful grip, so may I have an extra dose of courage please, with an extra portion of dreaming good dreams, and fulfilling my purpose?
May I remember that, even when it feels like everything is going wrong or being stripped from me, I need not harden my heart but instead open it for love and other good things to enter in. May I have a renewal of strength when it feels as if life is beating me down, to rise up once again, infused
not only with power but also with peace.
May I remember that sometimes we have to go through what might seem like the worst, in order to arrive at what could be our very best. May I remember when I feel like throwing up my hands and screaming “I quit!” that, at times, things have to go wrong before they go right.
Goodbye to April, a month of renewal, the onset of spring and change. Hello to May and all that it might bring, to all that we have to encounter, to all that might be awaiting us and which just might enrich our lives in ways unknown to us now. May we approach May with excitement, encouragement and empowerment for all that we might discover during its 31 days!
