Asking

I would like gasping happiness like driving fast in summertime.

I would like steadiness through change, to be standing still even on sand.

I would like clarity for repentance.

I would like peace enough to rest and be unashamed of breathing.

I would like wisdom with assurance for when I know only this step and not the next ten.

I would like to feel love and grace even more than I know them.

 

“It takes no supernatural grace to ask for what one wants and I have asked You bountifully…help me to ask You, oh Lord, for what is good for me to have, for what I can have and do Your service by having.” – Flannery O’Connor
