Sixth week already! For those who are faithfully following my blog, I’m sorry I haven’t written much over the past week or two. Getting ready to leave for Turkey today. Perhaps I’ll get some time for reflections there. Here’s the retreat site for this week.
I’ve learned through the years that getting in touch with my own sinfulness is not an exercise in putting myself down, but in confidently asking God to show me what He sees when He looks on me with love and seeks to get close to me. He wants me to try to look at things from His perspective, and to help me to put the obstacles I put in His path into His hands to take care of. The line that begins the 12-Step programs, “Trusting that God can do for me what I cannot do for myself,” is very relevant here.
