Abba, I abandon myself into your hands. Do with me what you will. Whatever you may do, I thank you. I am ready for all: I accept all. Let your will be done in me and in all your creatures. I wish no more than this, O Lord. Into your hands I commend my spirit. I offer it to you with all the love of my heart, for I love you, Lord, and I give myself, surrender myself into your hands without reserve, with boundless confidence, for you are my Father. (118)
This is my guiding hope and prayer for not only this summer, but for the whole of my life. I know that "all the love of my heart" is not yet what it ought to be, but such as it is, it is Yours, and I trust that You will continue to teach me. I do not yet know "boundless confidence," but I do have faith small as a mustard seed. I do not fully know what it means to "surrender myself into your hands without reserve," but I do desire to know.
What I do know is this: that you are my Father. I will choose to rest in that. You are my Abba. I will choose to trust in your love, and let that be enough.
