Sometimes we need to be dragged out of our safe space…

Change Me
Change me, God,

Please change me.

Though I cringe,


Resist and resent.

Pay no attention to me whatsoever.

tiny houseWhen I run to hide

Drag me out of my safe little shelter.

Change me totally.

Whatever it takes.

However long You must work at the job.

Change me – and save me

From spiritual self-destruction.

— Ruth C. From 12 Step Prayer Book Volume II
