    “Everyone got to find the right path. You can’t see it so it’s hard to find. No one can show you. Each person got to find the path by himself.”
    –Charlie Knight, UTE

    There are certain times in our lives when a voice whispers to us. The voice doesn’t always talk. Usually we hear it best when we are sick an tired of being sick and tired. Inside of every person is the knowledge that a Supreme Being exists. Sometimes a restlessness occurs and it makes me feel I need to be doing something or I need to be going somewhere or maybe I start wondering who am I? Often when this happens, I feel lost. Inside of everyone is the natural, built-in desire to be walking the Red Road, or to be seeking a relationship with the Creator. No one can force us to make this journey. We must make this journey because we want to. This journey is not on the outside. The path is inside of ourselves. It is inside that we must begin our search.

    Oh Great Spirit, help me this day to look within myself. If trouble arises, let me realize that it’s not what is going on but how I am looking at what’s going on. Give me Your power this day to conduct myself according to Your way of life.

    How well I recognize that feeling, nothing specific but just a feeling of restlessness and being unsettled. It happens to me when I do not stay connected to my Higher Power, when I compromise my values or when I allow my thinking to take me down dead-end streets.

    Beginning each day with prayer helps me recharge my spiritual batteries and know that whatever the day may bring, I will be okay.

    Hugs,
