Another road

         Having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod,
         they left for their own country by another road.

                  —Matthew 2.12

God, give me the courage of another road.
Give me the peace to accept new things,
to go new ways, to embrace the unfamiliar.
Give me the grace to be changed.
You who create each moment,
create me anew today.
Let each breath be a rebirth.
Be my star, and lead me.
Awaken me to your calling
and to my going. 
I let go of my attachment to knowing the way
and my fear of not knowing. 
Let me know nothing, and only listen,
depending entirely on you,
trusting that in all that changes
you are present, steadfast and devoted.
Walk with me, God, on this new road.

Deep blessings, Pastor Steve
