Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

Rare only in the sense that they came from my lips and I actually wrote three of them into my journal. Not sure why I started. Don’t know why I stopped.

1-30-05  Oh God, I feel so distracted tonight. I want to read the psalms, the Caring Ministry book, and pray, but my thoughts are scattered. I have a vague sense of unease.

1-31-05 I come to you, O God. Recognize me. Know my heart. Teach me to pray. speak, to me through the Holy Spirit. Make me a piece of your limitless stained glass. Shine through me. Help me to understand. Change me in any way you will. I am yours completely. You know the cries of my heart.

2-2-05  Enlarge me, O God. Cause me to grow in spirit, bigger than I am. Force me out of my comfort in thy service. Help me to discern the hearts of family and others, to see where I can do your will and ease their discomforts in life. Use me to move a rock that is holding back the living water.

Speak. Leave a memory.
