MARIANNE WILLIAMSON

from EVERYDAY GRACE by Marianne Williamson

We cannot give what we do not have.  We cannot bring peace to the world if we ourselves are not peaceful.  We cannot bring love to the world if we ourselves are not loving.”

LORD,  it all starts with me, doesn’t it?  Challenge me to acknowledge your power, live your power, share your power.  It is the only reason for existence in your world.  Transform me, bring light to the dark places, reveal love where I believe there is none.

It’s an inside job that only you are qualified to do. AMEN

from ST. FRANCIS

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.  Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where injury, pardon; where doubt, faith; where despair, hope; where darkness, light; where sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
