A Benediction

I am always on the search for great poems, verse, meditations or benedictions to use in group settings, teaching environments or personal reflection times with God. This week a ran across a benediction that really caught my heart. While I was not able to track it’s genesis, I think it strikes at the heart of what I long for in my own spiritual journey.

Reflect and enjoy,

Monty

***********

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships. so that you may live deep withing your heart.

May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitations of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

Amen

    Good post Monty. It makes me think of the prayer/saying, “May my heart break for the things that break God’s heart.” Thanks.
