Doing well

The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer. Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaint. As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

—Peter (1 Peter 4:7-10)

Walking to the office, my thoughts wandered briefly to my ex-boss. Shuddered inside a bit as I thought of what it was like working for her, how the relationship was never one I trusted, and how I was thankful that she was no longer part of my daily work. I also had a quickly passing thought about the stranger aspects of being me, how they prepare me for things to come, and how I would do well in these times to pay keen attention.

When I arrived at my desk and checked voice mail, I should have known it was her. A simple matter; something I can easily attend to. And I'm going to take this bit of prescience as a call to prayer for her. That takes letting go of myself and embracing God's heart. I would do well to do both.
