Finding the way home

 "It's not about getting fixed. It's about being handed a compass that points North and saying, "Go that Way!"  The Shepherd knows where to find you. You are NOT lost!" 

"Lord, I do not know what to ask. You alone know what I need. You love me better than I know how to love myself. O Father! Give to your child what she herself is too ignorant to pray for. I dare not ask either for crosses or consolations. I simply present myself before You. I adore your purposes even through I don't know them. I am silent. I offer myself in sacrifice, I yield myself you You. I want to have no other desire than to accomplish Your will. Teach me to pray. Pray YOU Yourself in me. Amen."
