This was a refreshing meditation today. I love Ted Loders reflections in Guerillas of Grace...this is another great one.  ~Monty

Make Me Simple

O Ingenious God,
I rejoice in your creation
and pray that your Spirit touch me so deeply,
that I will find a sense of self
…..which makes me glad to be who I am
……….and yet restless
……………at being anything less
………………..than I can become.
Make me simple enough
…..not to be confused by disappointments,
clear enough
…..not to mistake busyness for freedom,
honest enough
…..not to expect truth to be painless,
brave enough
…..not to sing all my songs in private,
compassionate enough
…..to get in trouble,
humble enough
…..to admit trouble and seek help,
joyful enough
…..to celebrate all of it,
……….myself and others and you
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
