5. Thy Will Be Done

 

Two problems with this one:

# 1 I want to do my will…

but, o.k. you’re God and so you win –

even if I don’t like it and it’s  hard.

# 2 What is your will?  (this is the tricky one)

Is this a “tough love” or “tender kindness” day.

Your boy Jesus had both –

whips for the money changes in the Temple, and  mercy for the woman caught in adultery.

So Father, with my family, my friends my colleagues, my clients etc. etc.

What do you want from me?

Speak up – let me know what you want and I’ll try….
