What will it profit you to gain the whole world
           and forfeit your life?
           Indeed, what can you give in return for your life?
                        —Mark 8.36-37

God, you pour out Life in a radiant stream,
flowing through my days, through this world,
at the heart of all things.
I confess I abandon it.
I turn from the You of life to the Me of my mind;
I slip out of the We of human family,
away from the Us of Creation, and forfeit real life.
Earnestly making, proving and defending myself,
I cut myself off from you, my only source of life.
I don’t even show up.
Here in my hands I have everything the world sells.
And it’s junk.

I repent.
Give me a spirit of gratitude and trust,
to receive your grace.
Give me a heart of love, to love boldly,
and so find in my hands life, true life.
