Our life’s pilgrimage can get muddied rather easily with expectations, opinions, and norms of society. St. Francis is a great example of how to “unbecome” things of this world so that we can become who God made us to be.
Lord of all creation, the distraction of the world is right at our fingertips.
Systems tell us who we should be,
what successes we should be focusing on,
and how we should be living.
Help me to put the ‘shoulds’ aside.
Grace me with stillness so that I can hear your voice guiding the way.
Sit with this verse from Esther 4:14, “Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.” Where is God calling you to be his hands and feet in the world today?
