Dear God, I become so panicked when I face restriction. I perceive limitation as trouble that must be surmounted. Yet when limitation is removed, when I have complete ease and freedom, I squander the opportunity on indolence and selfish thought.

Lord, let me eagerly welcome restriction. Limitation begets obedience and orderly habits – and these bring me nearer to you. Let my efforts to live an orderly life clear a channel, Lord, a channel between me and you. The more I efface my will the more yours can become my focus.

Bind me, Lord. Set me to work.

(Letter #1217)
