Lament #5

Submitted by Steve Pomeroy

O God of the disconnected, how easy it is to withdraw, to restrict our safe space, to limit our vision, to decide not to see.  Why do we do that, God?  Why do I do that, God?  Why have you created us in the greatness of freedom and allowed us to become chained with the need to be safe?  Why have you endowed us with the spirit of adventure that calls us to new journeys, but let us be fearful of risking so many first steps?

Embolden us, God – embolden me, God – to escape the entanglements of the safety nets we have created.  Help us to reach for your heavens and make them the stuff of our earth.  Amen.
