Lent 14

Pause.
Breathe.
Feel the ache of longing
for peace of mind and
peace of world.
Find God in the keenness.

Pause.
Breathe.
Let the unsettling be as it is:
the pain of love or the
pain of loss.
Meet God in the unresolved.

Pause.
Breathe.
Tune in to the problematic
without quick fixes or
easy understanding.
Touch base with God in the worrisome.

Pause.
Breathe.
Listen to the questions
seeking direction and
seeking assurance.
Rest with God in the unknown.

I love the line, "Rest with God in the unknown." This is an appropriate challenge for me. When it comes to the unknown I often find myself wrestling, seeking, struggling and/or fighting with God in the unknown. However, resting with God in the unknown...something new. Thanks!

Thank you, jb12, for the feedback and for taking time to comment. Yes, I struggle with "resting" in the unknown too .... this is still a prayer that I'm working on. :) Blessings!
