The life that I am putting on, this person I am trying to be – feels at times ill-fitting and unfamiliar.

Lord, let me act as you call me to do whether it suits or not. Let me cheerfully fulfill my obligations and duties even as I would rest idle and pursue diversion.

My selfish heart bristles at the humble discipline you call for.

Burn away the unnecessary, Lord, and leave me bare to you.

(Letter #1,928)
