Lent 5 ~ Lean Against God

bench-6104685_1280

Lord, help me to live this day, quietly, easily. To lean upon Thy great strength, trustfully, restfully. To wait for the unfolding of Thy will, patiently, serenely. To meet others, peacefully, joyously. To face tomorrow, confidently, courageously.   ~   St. Francis of Assisi

          When our children were little, there were days when some suffering or another was upon them and they could not be quieted. Days when no amount of cajoling or tickling or the usually effective distractions worked. Such times called for only one thing. To wrap our arms about our child and to hold the wee one close against our hearts till the dark waves ebbed and eased away.

          I am that little child today. Today, I go to lean against God’s great Heart, for myself and for those whom I pray for, drawing from it all the needed sustenance for mind, body and spirit.

          To face the morrow, renewed in hope, courage and confidence.
