Dear God, let my intentions today be single. Let me seek solely to do your will.

All my plans, my stratagems, my worries, my contingencies – let these all fall away. Let me see your presence around every corner, and ask in any situation: what would you have me do, O Lord?

I build castles in my mind as easily as I do nightmares but in all cases I rule these imaginary landscapes. My fantasies are all bereft of you and I am alone in them. Alone to rise or fall. What an impoverished inner life. Lift me away.

Lord, today, let me know you are with me.

(Letter #1021)
