My prayer this morning or maybe it is a hope—I guess I’m not sure of the difference—is that I am learning to trust God and other people.
Trusting enough to know, as Frederick Buechner writes, “the deep down rightness of the life God has created for us and in us” no matter how all the things I am concerned about unfold. That I can let go of my self and maybe let go of my conceptions of God and what life should be, to risk both doing and not doing.
Right now, I will finish the laundry I started and be grateful for this place we’ve been entrusted with for a time.
I will pray for my family with the Ephesian prayer to know the Love of God, to be strengthened inside, and that Christ may dwell in our hearts as we are being rooted and grounded in Love.
And the greatest and surest risk may be to trust that the power at work with us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine.
