Held Aloft

Realy-Cultivating Gods Garden 300by Margaret Rose Realy, Obl. OSB

Jesus, Lord of Heaven and Earth,

I love and adore you. You alone know how unsure I am of my present and my future. You alone, Lord, see the anxiety and darkness that I carry within me. You alone know how confused I am and how often I move and act within my own fear, failing to trust in You.

Send Your light of love into my deepest being. Send me Your courage that I may act clearly and boldly in every situation that challenges my faith in Your will for my good.

I trust in you, Jesus, to carry me aloft when I feel I am falling too fast. Amen.

From reflection for Saturday, Fifth Week of Lent, p 108, Cultivating God’s Garden through Lent, available on line through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the publisher Patheos Press.
