DesertLord, give me the discipline,

the love for you,

and the wisdom

to live this life you have given me

in the face of everything.

flickr-256755929-originalDespite my forgetfulness, You remember me.

Despite my fickleness, You are faithful to me.

Despite my shortsightedness, You always watch over me.

You are with me when I am not with You,

Loving me when I neglect You,

Deserving when I give You nothing,

You are always and forever.

Make me to Know you, my God.


*A hearty thanks to my dear Otter for keeping up with this blog during my recovery. I am blessed to have received her poignant and touching contributions.

Draw me in

2012-08-27 (27)

Dear Lord,

There is so much to see here. So much to wonder at. So much to love. Yet this is only your creation. I can’t even imagine the glory of your presence.

Help me Lord to see You in the beauty of all that is around me. Let each marvel be a teasing glimpse of Your greatness, luring me closer to finding You.

Don’t let me get caught up in the momentary beauty of what I see around me. Draw me instead into Your depths.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

When I despair, I have neglected You.

When I desire, I have ignored You.

All things fail but through You.

2012-09-12 (12)Holy One,

when I am angry, make me sing;

when I am melancholy, make me laugh;

when I am doubtful, make me pray;

when I am lazy, make me strive;

when I am gluttonous, make me fast;

when I am impatient, make me wait;

when I am callous, make me assuage.

Whenever my will is not Thy Will, make They Will to be mine.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

For-Etsy-50You are my mother and my father. Who will take care of me if you don’t?

I depend on you for everything. I cannot even breathe without you.

The forest of the world is thick and dangerous, and I am so small.

Only in your arms can I find the courage to live.

Take me up and hold me firm, and put me where you want me.

I won’t complain, but stay near me. Stay near me.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

You have trod every step of this life ahead of me. You have solved every problem, you have faced every hardship, you have conquered every fear and wiped away every tear. If I can only live in the moment you have given me, feeling the presence of your perfect will, your strength and compassion, nothing will hold me back.

Let me sing to you with every word and worship you with every thought. Let my every movement be done with gratitude.

There is none and nothing but you. And you are infinitely precious to me. Be my Holy Beloved, and keep hold of my hand always.
