Choices, Part 1
This week, like all weeks, we will be confronted with challenging situations; when we are, help us to choose embrace over escape.
Give us courage not to try to escape such situations because to attempt escape is to fail to develop our faith in you and to choose not to grow in our experience of life in all of its complexity.
Give us courage rather to embrace such situations because to embrace them is to experience your grace in its fullness and to accept the gift of life in all of its aspects.
Help us this week to choose embrace and to decline escape.
