a prayer for the pigeon-holed

pigeon holedI was looking over some old writing files and found the following prayer. Thought I’d share it here, in case someone found it helpful!

Father,
Sometimes I feel swamped by the expectations of others.
I don’t fit into their ready-made boxes.
I frequently feel misunderstood.
But you know me – you understand me.
Wherever I go, you are there with me.
You give me worth and identity and purpose.
Help me not to forget that, and give me courage
when the world does not understand.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

  1. Thank you Lucy, another gem from your treasure box outside of the ‘tick box’

    I love the raw of your heart made of flesh in your vulnerability and humility, is to connect in a real way in the sweet flow of ‘liquorice all sorts’

    It’s overwhelming Father’s love comprehends us in our unique design and destiny, simply to live as true sons and daughters.

    Have a beautiful day deep encounter of His love for you Luscious Lucy
