One sermon I remember from growing up in church was the example of a ladder, and all the sorts of things we rest our lives upon, the aims we struggle towards and what we hope for. And whether we find our climb is a God shaped ladder or think for a while where it is leading us.

I can’t say I am perfect, and one colleague recently said, when you get further up the ladder at work, sometimes you get further away from what you really set out to do.

I struggle with considering money as the ultimate ladder for life. Lately with all the prices going up so much and seeing our local area be developed into luxury housing and luxury serviced student flats, it makes me think, the only way to achieve the things you want in life, is with more money.

A colleague of mine kindly prayed for me, for prosperity of spirit. I guess this is something we can all pray for, to be filled with God, or a sense of purpose, or maybe to feel peace. All these things are intangible richness in life. Being content is another one, and grateful. It’s so easy to always find something that disappoints us.

I don’t always know if I’ve set my ladder right, but my dad says to me it’s important to have goals. I believe that getting clearer about what we want, can help guide us, when so many things distract us from our path.

Superkey’s Easter Prayer

I am weighing up how adults can be successful in their own right, when after graduating other life milestones are more difficult to achieve. If couples never expect to own their home, and housing is so uncertain for families. What other steps are adults supposed to take? Many young people aren’t so motivated with driving as different generations. Maybe it’s more growing old, and career path mapping?

Can you think of ladders in your life which represent goals you are working towards?
