What wealth have the divinities brought into your life?

Peace.  Acceptance.  Patience.  And a clue.

Peace.  I came to my gods with anger in my heart.  I still get angry, but I no longer feel that it will never end.

Acceptance.  One of the reasons I can see an end to anger is that I now find it easier to accept that some things are just out of my control, and that that means that it’s okay to let them go.

Patience.  I swore I would never have any, but it’s there, and it’s growing.  I doubt anyone in my life can see it, but see acceptance.

A clue.  Apparently, there has been good advice, good information, and good sense surrounding me from day one, but I couldn’t see it — or didn’t want to.  Belief in my gods comes with the understanding that they sometimes dangle useful information in front of me, and I need to be paying attention.  A side benefit of paying attention for the gods is that mortals are pretty damned smart, too.

This post is part of a series of devotional questions for polytheists which were developed by Galina Krasskova.
