Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

Letting Go to God

A colleague and friend of mine spoke today at our Friday morning briefing - sharing this prayer as we approach the weekend:

God, 
Please help us to rest.
Please help us to remember that You are All There Is.

I place my list of things to do in your hands.
Just for a moment, I let it go.

I place any thoughts about how things should be different in your hands.
Just for a moment, I let them go.

I place any thoughts about how anyone should be different in your hands.
Just for a moment, I let them go.

I place any thoughts about how I should be different in your hands,
Just for a moment, I let them go.

Right now, just for a moment,
I allow things to be exactly as they are,
I allow myself to be exactly as I am,

And so I rest.

A simple but powerful prayer, it has stayed with me all day.
