I have been thinking today of a prayer that I haven't said in a while but was given to me by an older sister before I entered. The only words I can remember right now are, "in the bounds of thy creation, no one needs thee more than I..." It's surfacing has given me such a wonderful feeling of being held by God and of the rightness of my life. It has been a peaceful presence today.
It's amazing how God reaches into the memory to pull out things you forgot you had but He knows you need. When I find the prayer (which may already be at my new convent... so it could be a few weeks!) I will post it because it was very helpful to me in learning that it is okay to be needy before God. He knows I am but I always need a reminder. All of my things that I usually have in my "prayer corner" of my bedroom are in containers waiting for my arrival at my new convent and so I have been a little low on visual reminders of God. It's a good thing that He lives within me and He continues to call out the reminders I already have. So, God, come to me because in the bounds of thy creation, no one needs thee more than I!
