The Hermitage - Assisi
view of the Hermitage -
still 30 minutes walk to go
Who knows how long a walk?
Wrong shoes, no directions, no water in the middle of the day- the faith of a fool.
But there is an intent for this walk - a journey towards a leaving behind. The ego, the little I,
the needy needing to be needed; and for what?
To prove that I am ‘good for something’;
that I have a right to exist?
God’s been doing the hard work again –waiting - waiting for me to recognise myself in Him.
To realise that I may be an outsider but I am not outcast –
To know that being ‘useless’ means being available to the Spirit’s desire. To understand that I can only be ‘useful’ to God by being empty, by being vulnerable.
So I thank you, Lord, for the challenges and errors that got me here.
For showing me that nothing is impossible;
that I am braver than I thought I was;
that I have friends; that I have You.
Take my life Lord, fill it with Yourself.
