One of my favorite movie quotes – “SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!” Over and over Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding, Jr. screamed the phrase to each other in the movie Jerry McGuire and eventually the money did indeed “show up.” It was hysterical but it was also very powerful.
The words “show me” have been pretty powerful in my life, especially when I speak them as a prayer. Show me the truth. Show me the way. Show me what you want me to see. Show me what I need to change. Show me how. Show me. It’s an active request. It’s a desire to know T-R-U-T-H. It’s a humble admittance of unknowing with an urgent vocalization to change the view that you currently have.
The answer may not be pretty. Yet, the words aren’t meant to be pretty. They are brave. They are brave especially if you accept what you see. Sure, you can shake your head, misinterpret, explain away…whatever you want to do, really. But when you whisper the words “show me,” and you mean it, and you’re awake for the answer, get ready. Heart open. Eyes open. Ears open. Knees to the earth. Get ready. I look forward to hearing your stories.
