It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.e. e. cummings
Abba, share your heart with me. Wake me up where I am yet asleep. Bring me to life where I am yet dead. Open my eyes where I am yet blind. Open my ears where I am yet deaf. Open my heart to Love where I am yet in fear. Open my arms in courage where I am yet closed up and afraid. Heal my body where I am yet dis-eased. Bring a peace that surpasses understanding where I am yet scattered and in doubt. Soften me to forgiveness where I am yet hardened in judgment. Open my creativity and vision where I am yet pinched into a self-imposed box of logic and people-pleasing.
If yet a caterpillar, allow that I would prepare to cocoon.
If in the cocoon, allow that I would prepare to emerge.
If emerging, allow that I would patiently dry my wings.
If my wings are dry, allow that I would begin to flap and prepare to fly.
And if flying, allow that I would give glory to God for the transformation.Lisa Augustine Glasier
And so it is.
