Prayer #78: Milestoned

Industrious God,

It takes a lot of work for us to reach a milestone --
a lot of late nights,
a lot of dedication,
a lot of sacrifice.

And it takes a lot of help from You to get us there --
a lot of forgiveness,
a lot of patience,
a lot of love.

But my real transformation happens between the mile markers, at all-too-brief pit stops, when I finally have the space to see how far I've come, how far I have left, and how far gone I'd be without You navigating.

At these moments, grant me stillness, Lord. And when I move again, may it be with faith rested and sight restored, so I can find my way to where You wait.
