“The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing — to reach the Mountain, to find the place where all the beauty came from — my country, the place where I ought to have been born. Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing? The longing for home? For indeed it now feels not like going, but like going back.”
― C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

James 4:14-15

With my narrow and largely self-centered mindset, I think solely about myself and my immediate surroundings (hw, classes, meals, family/friends). I go to sleep every night, expecting the following day to be occupied by the same routine. However, with the conflicts escalating around the world, and nearing home, I am reminded that nothing in this world is guaranteed/secured. I cannot be sure of my safety, or that of others. I don’t even know if I will wake up to see another day.

All in all, Lord God the Father, if it is Your will, allow me to see another beautiful day. Let my work and livelihood bring You glory. Forgive my sins, as cleansed by Jesus, and give me insight into Your will.
