Dear God, I feel so small this morning, in the face of all that is before me. The world, and the tasks and challenges within it, is so large and I am so inadequate. Small, like a child.

If I am a child, though, it is a child of God. Of you. You grant me your power. You protect me. You go before me to prepare the way, that your child may not encounter insurmountable difficulty.

Lord, let me trust that I am your child, moving among my brothers and sisters. We are enacting your will on a stage of your making. Let me play my role, grateful to have a part. Let me do your will today.

(Letter #873)
