Mother God,
You have blessed me
with new gifts to explore,
gifted me
with new horizons to chase.

But I find myself
seeking out familiar corners,
safe cushions to hide in.

Help me to emerge
into the new,
into the open areas
You are inviting me into.

Help me to explore
what You are offering,
the things You know
will help me grow into my future.

Mother God
of open spaces
and closed corners

of big wide dreams
and tiny hopes

When we're feeling small
in spaces too large

or squashed into spaces
that no longer fit

You are with us.

You ground us

and we can rest
in your loving arms
