Help us to not be afraid of truths that challenge us, that challenge our perceptions and our worldly knowledge, our sense of security, and our false dependence on self.
Help us to depend only on you and your will. Help us to embrace the sweetness of your cross, and to believe that you have made your cross and ours into joy.
If only we could see, Lord, as you see! Our hearts are restless until they rest in you!
