"God is our refuge and our strength,
an ever-present help in distress.
Therefore we fear not, though the earth be shaken
and mountains plunge into the depths of the sea."
We pray, not that we will change God, but that God will change us. May we be open and pliable to the change we need. Only God can change us. Only God can heal us. Only God can work within us to bring out the REAL us. In the meantime, more will be asked of us. We are asked to be light where there is darkness. We are asked to be hope when things seem hopeless. We are asked to stand with the poor, disenfranchised, and suffering when they feel left out and abandoned. We are asked to care for our earthly home. We are asked to be God's hands and feet in the world when the world needs us. We are asked to look in the mirror and be the people we thought we already were, but, apparently, we aren't. Yet. Love, heidi
