As we fall from the crumbling wall of our own reputation, status, and ability, we trust You are the solid ground beneath our tired feet.
As we face those who have doubted us the most, remind us how You stand in front of us, behind us, beside us, and within us.
When we look for courage elsewhere, remind us to turn to You instead.
You have all the gumption and moxie we could possibly need.
We accept our smallness in Your presence.
Replace our shame with laughter and our doubt with love.
Teach us to begin again with joy.
This prayer is from Emily P. Freeman “A Prayer for the Beginner”. It seemed so fitting to the content of this post, or at least for my experience in it.
