Our Path on the Edge


Sometimes on the path we’re walking, it is easy to take our frustration and confusion out on God. This is human, normal, and okay. But what would it look like to consider resting in your inherent union with the divine in the unknown, in the proverbial desert, and in the tension?


This path is uniquely mine,
which is to say it is ours, 
since you never leave me,
though it sometimes seems like
you forsake me, 
especially when I judge you
through the lens of my fantasies.

Today I will trust our path, 
where my illusions are freed
to sink in the soil
and my obsessions are freed
to sink in the sea, 
here on “the edge of the inside,”
this perfect path for me.

In a world that is not my own, 
I will make our path my home.


Whenever you begin to feel lost today in the overwhelming nature of life’s complexities, consider allowing a phrase from this prayer to ruminate and create the cognitive space for you to make your home, with God, in the unknowing.
