Let the stone be a stone

Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you.

       The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God,        command this stone to become a loaf of bread."                — Luke 4.3

God, deliver me         from the temptation

to refuse to see what is         for what it is,

to make the world         into what it is not,

to expect of myself         power over things beyond me,

to fall for the lie         that I must prove who I am.

God grant me         the grace

to honor the power of Being,         not doing,

to be my self,         not someone's expectation,

to love myself,         not what I can control,

to let the stone         be a stone.

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
