I read this tonight and found it to resonate within my heart.
I often find that some of our Christian cliché’s do not find a place to settle in my heart…
Oddly, these words do…
I wonder what God is blessing you with as you journey through this wild winter and early days of 2014…
I invite you to share with one person how God is working through your discomfort, you holy anger, your tears or your foolishness…
May God bless you with a restless discomfort
about easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships,
so that you may seek truth boldly and love deep within your heart.
May God bless you with holy anger at injustice, oppression,
and exploitation of people, so that you may tirelessly work for
justice, freedom, and peace among all people.
May God bless you with the gift of tears to shed with those who suffer
from pain, rejection, starvation, or the loss of all that they cherish, so that you may
reach out your hand to comfort them and transform their pain into joy.
