The riches found in prayer

I’m here to tell you the good news:

There is a gemstone treasure waiting to nourish your soul in the quiet depths of contemplation.

If you could begin to fathom the wealth of graces waiting for you under the surface of life,

you wouldn’t hesitate to dive right into the crystal clear pool of silence.

I encourage you to swim boldly into prayer,

deep into the beauty of hope.

Even though it’s hard to let go of  the comfort of surface life and you’re terrified,

while the frosty water bites your skin,

and you imagine creatures hungrily swimming up

to devour your last resolve …

I’m here to tell you:

it’s worth it to carry on.

I know what I’m talking about because I had the grace to believe.

I dove into faith and lost everything,

even my own life,

before I discovered the miracle of infinite riches He’d created for me.

Now I’m alive in truth, bejeweled in dignity.

I finally realize my worth as the daughter of a King, and

I want the same for you.

The question is:

Do you have the courage to take the plunge?

How much are you willing to surrender to dive ever deeper,

into the sacred mystery of His love for you?

Are you willing to lose yourself completely?
