Safety

Dear God,

I want to be safe, maybe too much.  Does it hinder You in acting with me to know that my safety needs seem so large?

I used not to know that this was a safe universe, a friendly universe.  When I was in my early teen years, I used to lie awake at night and wonder about just that.  Why didn’t I love You more?  I was afraid of You.

Now that is all in the past.  Long ago I realized that I live in a friendly universe, that You are out there and also within me, just looking to guide–when I will let You.

I will let You today.  Keep me wrapped up in Your cocoon of love, knowing that whatever might happen, I truly am safe.  Because You deem it so.

Amen.

I write prayers, mostly first thing in the morning, to get the day started out right. I intend this blog to encourage others to respond with their own.
