Give it to God

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess.
You have given all to me; to you, O Lord, now I return it all; all is yours, dispose of me wholly according to your will. Give me only your love and your grace, for this is enough for me.
~Ignatius of Loyola

Give it all to God.
Don't fret finding your own answers.
Frustration, depression, confusion, elation.
Take the weight off your shoulders,
Drop it at His feet.
Give it all to God.

'"It was pretty risky of God to give us free will."
"Very Risky," Grandpa Bowman said.
"Do you think it was a mistake?"
"I am not God," Grandpa Bowman said. "But I am happy that I am human being who can make mistakes, and not an insect, who cannot."'
From A Certain Woman, by Madeleine L'Engle
