Blessing for the Journey into Suffering

July 29, 2011

May the suffering that stretches your soul
also render it pliable in the hand of God.
May the stretch be soft, so you can endure it
with unyielding patience.
May your vision be clear so that,
no matter the trial, you can
see the wonder standing quietly nearby.
And in the very thing you long to cast away,
may you find a gem worth keeping.
