May I see those you have given to me to love and allow myself to be seen by those to whom I have been given to love. May I daily surrender before you God, opening my mind to the sacred wind of the Kingdom, letting go of my shame and releasing others from theirs. May I practice passing on knowledge and wisdom and food and joy and friends and love so that my life is a vibrant river of life with the grace of God flowing in and out. Father, when I am stuck in my own head, in my own fears, in my own shame, grant me the courage to make one move, and when I am depleted with my pursuing, may I be still and receive power from on high. We have received mercy. May we be merciful. We have received power. May we be wise and true and humble. Amen.
This week, each day, pick one story from the life of Jesus. Read it through. Choose an word of action in that story. Write that word down. Meditate on it. Pray about it. Then watch for opportunities during the day to practice that word. With the mission of Jesus in mind, write a mission statement for yourself, your family, your vocation.
