Ask Me To Provide

While it was drilled into me that faith without works is dead, there comes a day when you know that no matter how hard you work, your efforts alone are insufficient. It's just not humanly possible. 

You don't have enough savvy, enough followers, enough pull, enough money, enough influence, enough of anything to advance further.  Doesn't matter who you know, how creative your business cards, how slick your marketing materials, how well posed your selfies, it will never be enough for the magnitude of the vision that you hold.

In the almost-awake state where my mind is most free to hear Higher than at any other time, my heart pondered this.  For days, weeks, months, years, I have worked tirelessly to advance my dream.  I have a strong work ethic, this is true.  Besides, I love what I do and how I do it.  So this is not the lament of fatigue or overwhelm.  It's just an acknowledgment.   

While, with the assistance of social media, service and delivery is as easy as a click, inspiring people to want what you are offering is something altogether different.  What would make people in another country subscribe to you, listen to what you say, buy what you sell when their inboxes and news feeds are being flooded with similar offerings boasting of being better? How can your message break through social, cultural, geographic and language barriers and resonate with the people who have been waiting for you to show up?  
Perhaps that pondering created a space for Wisdom to answer me.  With the gentleness of a trusted friend, I heard, "Ask Me to provide."
