Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 6/15

Self-doubt and second guessing
   disturb my discernment and delay my decisions:
afraid that I'll misunderstand or make a mistake
   I stall and I get nowhere at all...

Confidence, Lord: I need confidence!

I need confidence in the smarts you gave me:
   not the ones I want but the ones I have...

I need confidence in you, Lord,
   to trust that your Spirit always leads me...

I need faith in those who help me, Lord,
   the ones you've given me for guidance...
I need confidence in my own ideas and thoughts
   and in the wisdom of my own experience...

I need confidence to trust that if I make a mistake
   you'll forgive me, pick me up and help me on my way...

I need confidence that everything will be okay in the end
   and that if it's not okay, it's not the end.

I need confidence that all shall be well, Lord,
   that all shall be well,
      that all manner of things shall be well...

I need confidence, Lord, 
   to trust that you'll give me confidence...

  1. Great post and truly enjoyed the Reflection in Give Us This Day this morning!

  2. Thank you so much. I needed that reminder that ALL WILL BE WELL.


  3. It was a treat to find your words in my hands this morning via Give Us This Day. What delights me more is knowing that two dozen offenders at the jail discovered them as well!
