This is from my meditation for today, from Eugene Peterson’s A Year With Jesus, which is a daily reading from the gospels, accompanied by a few sentences of explanation and a prayer. I’ve been turning over the prayer today and thought I’d share it.
My goal, Savior Christ, is to believe in you so deeply and thoroughly that my first response in every crisis is faith in what you will do, trust in how you will bless. But I have a long way to go. Lead me from my fearful midget-faith to mature adulthood. Amen.
