Pause + Pray

Yesterday’s Footsteps


There are times we are pulled toward thoughts of the past and replaying regretful events over and over in our minds. May this prayer help you let go into today.


Dear God,
My troubling thoughts
of the past

are keeping me from opening up
to the possibilities
of this brand new day. 
Show me the beauty
of the path right before me

so I can let go
of yesterday’s footsteps.
Bring me the peace of acceptance
for the twists and turns
of my life,

knowing how they led me
right to finding you.


Take a walk and allow yourself to really feel each step upon God’s earth underneath you, and the expansiveness of the sky up above.
