Do you ever struggle with thinking you want too much out of life? I don’t usually struggle with wanting more tangible things. Well, that’s a lie. I always want more books.
I often find myself wanting more of the intangible things that form and fill the corners of my life. But one day recently I asked God to give me the grace for this to be enough. So, this is one of my prayers now. It doesn’t mean I don’t want more. I’ll always want more of certain things on this side of eternity. But my prayer and kernel of longing for this to be enough makes the waiting easier. It makes the now more inhabitable.
God, give me grace for this to be enough. God, give us grace for this to be enough.
This set of circumstances
This present moment
This glimpse of beauty
This place where I am
