Lord, when I thought I could do everything, I could do nothing. And now that it seems to me I can no longer do anything, I am beginning to be able to do everything in you who strengthens me. How blessed is my lack of ability, because it makes me find in you everything that is lacking in me! —François Fénelon, Meditations on the Heart of God, Paraclete Press
Jesus, you are my Good Shepherd. You want an intimate relationship with me. You lay down your life to keep me safe. May I believe that I have an intimate relationship with you today, as I would with a dear friend. Grant me a thankful heart to rejoice in your goodness. Amen.
