When we feel vulnerable we often become anxious and frightened. But it is through our vulnerability that God blesses the world. Think of Abraham, called to leave the security of his home and go to an unknown land; it was there that he would become a blessing.
Dear Lord, take me out of my comfort zone today
and make me a blessing to all who meet me this day.
Remind me that we are on this journey of life together.
May my fear of opening up to those around me
be overcome by the promise and potential
of the human connection.
Speak to someone you don’t know well. Or call someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time. And really listen. It may feel awkward at first, but that is part of being vulnerable, of becoming a blessing.
