Life on earth is rich with opportunity that call to us
in hypnotic voices (each opportunity an embryo of a potential god).
Forgive me if I chase too many. Reel me in if I become too distracted from the path you have set before me.
Knock me down if I become so drunk on accomplishments that I begin to idolize silly things, like money or status.
Because human motivation is a complicated thing and all of the voices we chase into our futures are often times whispered by
the vaguest of disappointments from our pasts.
And there are so many unseen people, and spirits,
who promote our failure for their own personal profit.
But you, Lord, lead us to true purposes and good company.
You are our navigator.
Our secret mission.
Our narrow escape.
