Reflections On The Journey

Monday Meditation – Success 8/22/2022


When was the last time you felt successful?


My cast, crew and I just completed the performances for the play I directed this summer. It was a lot of work, but we are calling this project a success!


The actors in my cast were superb – they worked so hard and added some many funny things to a play that was already quite hilarious. The crew was amazing as well… they stepped up to do many things before I even asked. We had wonderful attendance at our four in-person shows and several people watched the livestream. Our ticket sales numbers were excellent! We are still tallying all the expenses, so the net number is still unknown, but at this point we are pretty sure we will have made a little money to help support our non-profit. The combination of everyone’s efforts helped to make this project a success, and I feel greatly blessed to have participated in it.


It’s a good feeling to know you have been part of something successful. But I believe our success was not totally just based on the hard work of all the people involved… I think God also had a hand in it. Why? For one thing, I prayed about the project before I even said yes. I wanted to be sure that it was something God wanted me to do, and I did get that sense when I prayed.


In addition, I prayed throughout the whole project. Now I don’t mean to imply that prayer is a guarantee that things always will work out, because we all know that many times when we pray we do not get what we ask for. But I do believe that prayer doesn’t hurt, and probably does contribute to success.


I also believe that when something is successful, it’s because God wants it to be successful. When a project is good and meaningful, something that is going to benefit people, I think God likes that, and He will help it along.


My prayers today are ones of thanksgiving for the project and its success. I am thanking God for everything that went right with the show, and even for the things that didn’t go so well, because we learned from those things. I am also giving thanks for each person who helped in some way to make this show happen, and for the new friendships that were formed during the process. This project has really been a blessing in my life.


Have you had a success recently? If so, I pray that you will thank God for His help and direction, and you will thank those other people who helped make your project a success. If you have not had a success recently, do not give up. Perhaps you aren’t working on what God intends. Pray to God to help you figure out what is the right focus, and to help you follow that path. And you may just get the blessing of a success.


Have a blessed Monday!
