Let go

Well, after the amazing spiritual high I wrote about yesterday, today has been something of an anti-climax, which perhaps isn’t very surprising. I feel exhausted, empty and dispirited, entirely devoid of inspiration.

However, I still have a few unpublished prayers in hand, so after a lot of thought, I’ve decided to continue posting until everything suitable has been used. If no fresh insights have come to me by then, I will have to bring this blogsite to a close, either for a while, or permanently. This prospect makes me very sad, but if it happens, I will have to accept it.

Anyway, for the moment, here is a short prayer I wrote some weeks ago:

 

Lord,
Please help me
To let go
Again and again
Of longing
To be different
From how I am.

I'd love to hear from you...
