Dear God, I so often think I know the right course of action. Where a solution is needed, I believe myself to have it. If all followed my advice then the outcomes would be as hoped-for.

Folly.

Lord, pierce through this way of thinking. These things that I perceive need fixing – let me place it all at your feet. Work your will on these conditions. Let me set about the more difficult task – the discipline – of acceptance.

Lord, let me act only when your guidance is clear and compelling. In all other areas, let me allow your plans to unfold. Let me devote my energies to pouring love into all things. Thy will be done

(Letter #1215)
