Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Eat Pray Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Even when we know that our complaints and struggles are relative, how do we move forward?”
I held the closed book in my hands, concentrating on my prayer, and opened the book to this passage on page 92:
“Wayan once told me that sometimes when she’s healing her patients she becomes an open pipeline for God’s love, and she ceases even thinking about what needs to be done next. The intellect stops, the intuition rises and all she has to do is permit her God-ness to flow through her. She says, ‘It feels like a wind comes and takes my hands.'”
To shake our complaints and struggles in the midst of an inability to see them in relativity, we need to allow the wind of God to come and take our hands and transform us into healing. This is a healing of quality, not quantity. When we permit our own God-ness to flow through us, we are reminded that God is always with us. Sometimes we need to allow ourselves to be carried by God when we cannot carry ourselves any longer. And to know, with every echo of distant faith, that we are carried in deepest love. Never forsaken. Held tightly with everything we need. Worthy of every step in which we are carried along our path. Every…single…step.
