We all need some space to pause and take a deep breath. This blog is an attempt for me to create some breathing space in my life and to reflect on the hopes i have, the needs is see, and what God may be teaching me today.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

Prayer for Major Life Transition
Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
Shane Claiborne, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Enuma Okoro
Prayer for Major Life Transition:
Lord, help me now to unclutter my life, to organize myself in the direction of simplicity. Lord, teach me to listen to my heart; teach me to welcome change, instead of fearing it. Lord, i give you the stirrings inside me. I give you my discontent. I give you my restlessness. I give you my doubt. I give you my despair. I give you all the longings i hold inside. Help me to listen to these signs of change, of growth; help me to listen seriously and follow where they lead through the breathtaking empty space of an open door.
