Reckless Abandonment

The Agony in the Garden

In his agony, Jesus begs that the Father’s will be done. His prayer reveals that Jesus loves the Father’s will more than his own life. May I live such trusting abandonnent, completely given over to the will of God.  May the suffering I encounter in my daily life make me strong and steadfast in faith.

Somehow my brain decided that it actually read “may I live such RECKLESS abandonment”.   Reckless?  To the world, yes!  Even other Christians often think that kind of all-in behavior is reckless.

I want to be reckless.  I too often choose to be cautious.  Especially in real life.

Lord, teach me to live such RECKLESS ABANDONMENT!
