Trust in the slow work of God. If we try to control our life, we will never be at peace. Wait with openness and unclench your fists. Receive fully what God has for you without grasping.
Dear God, your incarnate life on earth
is a continual openness to the will of the Father.
Teach me to receive and be open,
rather than clenching tightly
to what I want.
May I learn surrender from you,
knowing that deep surrender brings deeper freedom.
Name the things or people in your life to whom you are tightly clinging and ask Jesus to help you surrender with open hands, not clenched fists.
