oh God may we never look to people who we know will just agree with us. may we always be conscious of your presence and your ways so we can properly use the wisdom you give us, the capacity you grace us every single day. may we never willingly ignore the wise wisdom of the right people you have planted us with, may we make sure that we will always be truly after what you want, not what we want validated by those around us. thank you God for you are always more than our ways and decisions.
