It is the place of light, the place of truth, the place of love. It is the place where I so much want to be, but am so fearful of being. It is the place where I will receive all I desire, all that I ever hoped for, all that I will ever need, but it is also the place where I have to let go of all I most want to hold on to. It is the place that confronts me with the fact that truly accepting love, forgiveness, and healing is often much harder than giving it. It is the place beyond earning, deserving, and rewarding. It is the place of surrender and complete trust.
-Henri Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son
God’s grace in my life today:
I’m feeling SO much better. Skipping class so I could heal and study at home worked out really well for me today. I’m also grateful for friends at school who take notes for me 🙂
Thank You, Lord!
