Today is the day I am starting to do things I have wanted to do but keep putting off. One is to start this blog. The other is to create a web-site for my paintings. Yippee. I have done both.
I have so many reflections on the spiritual journey floating through my mind that I often wish I had a place to share. Maybe it is the extravert in me that needs to process "out loud". I am not much for talking to myself so this might be another way to process together with others some of what I think about. I welcome your response as well. Today this little blog is just to get started but to set the tone I will share with you a prayer that I have written at the back of my journal. It speaks to the way I am and what is the desire of my heart.
You have set in my heart a restlessness
that forbids me to be satisfied
with what I have made of my life.
Help me then to open the channels
between the great Ocean of Yourself
and the great need in myself
and let your wisdom and inspiration and strength
flow into me in full tide.
Take hold upon me and with me
with Your might at all times
whether in darkness or light
so Your will shall be
accomplished in me and through me
for my own good and
for the good of the world.
Taken from an out of print devotional book that I have used for 50 years.
