A still morning
Because I am loved and I love, I don’t have to worry about my response or lack of it. I don’t have to struggle with my desire to understand. I don’t have to wrestle with my feeling of unworthiness. All I have to do is be still, stay close and let you love me into wholeness.
Father, sometimes it’s the hardest thing in the world just to be still, stay close and let you love me. But because I am loved and I love, I try.
Here I am, Father. Still, for once. Closer than I’ve ever been. Waiting. Accepting. Wanting. Love me, Father. ~Brennan Manning in Souvenirs of Solitude
Remember this–you are loved.
Welcome to Still Saturday where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and words. We’d love for you to join us. Get the details above, grab your favorite button, and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.
