this is my heart:
prayer for the journey
hear me, God.
You are the God of Life.
i feel You in the deepest places of my being.
i hear You calling me to grow, to produce great fruit in the world.
sometimes this frightens me. growth will not happen without risk.
You know that i don't like this feeling of being exposed and made vulnerable.
but You are not impressed with my well-reasoned and carefully measured plan to play it safe.
help me, then, to break down my resistance.
send the Gardener to work the soil of my soul.
nurture me with Your love.
give me this moment to awaken to Your Presence and this day to do Your will.
