Dear God, each of my weaknesses is an opportunity to become supported by you. When my strength gives way, you lift the burden. When I am resentful, you show me another whose conditions are worse. When frightened, you make me too busy to dwell upon it.

I thought I needed strength, yet you delivered relief. I thought I needed tolerance, yet you delivered to me compassion. I thought I needed courage, yet you delivered to me diligence.

In pain and turmoil, how will you rescue me? Let me have quiet confidence that I, your child, will be saved today – even as the form may surprise.

(Letter #1,546)
