a prayer for the bumpy uncertain journey of life

The following prayer, written by the late Henri J.M. Nouwen, gives voice to my own journey:

“Dear Lord, I will remain restless, tense, and dissatisfied until I can be totally at peace in your house. There is no certainty that my life will be any easier in the years ahead, or that my heart will be any calmer. But there is certainty that you are waiting for me and will welcome me home when I have persevered in my long journey to your house.”

    I remember Fr. Daniel reading some Nouwen stuff to me years and years ago. As I read this post it reminded me of that time.

    Know I’m thinking of you – prayer for you on your current journey.
