Everything? Help me to tune into the attachments I have in my life that prevent me from experiencing the fullness of joy, purpose and inner peace you died to give me. Fill me with the grace to release what I have been clinging to in my life for a sense of purpose and identity. Help me to receive you in my mind, will and emotions. I want to emerge from this time of sheltering in place with a resurrected sense of connection to you, and you alone. I am willing to believe that I will never be left empty handed when I surrender all that I am into all that you are. I want freedom in you moving forward.
