Dear God, how, Lord, shall I carry your message? I want to proclaim it, to shout it. But I feel your calling, and you drive me to whisper. This quiet voice you give me, the one so few hear.

I misperceive this anonymity as a lesson for me – teaching humility. It is that, but it is more: the discovered voice is the one listened to by the few.

Lord, let me cast away thoughts of influence. Let my telling of your way be an unexpected discovery for a small few.

Let me speak more quietly.

(Letter #1156)
