 Our Sacred Center

“Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only speak the word and my servant will be healed.”  Matthew 8:8

I know that I am called to live at the place of innocence; the place where Jesus chose to live. There he made his home and asks me to make mine. In that place I am loved and will held. There I do not have to be afraid. And from there I can forgive and heal and make things new.

Can I live innocently on this planet in the years ahead? Can I choose to make my innocence my home think from there, speak from there, act from there? It is a hard choice because my insecure self wants so much to be part of a world that controls, rewards, and tells me whether I am good or bad. But I can go beyond that insecurity and discover my sacred center. fashioned in secret and molded in the depths of the earth.

I know that every time I choose for my innocence, I don’t have to worry about the next ten years. I can simply be where I am, listening, seeing, touching in the very moment, always sure that I am not alone but with him who called me to live as God’s child.


Dearest Lord, help me overcome my insecurities and discover what it is you want for me.
