Leaving things behind in order to serve others…

29 May

As the week begins, our volunteers from Madonna University School of Nursing are learning what it means to leave behind their selves and the many conveniences that they have back home, as they walk in relationship with their brothers and sisters here in Haiti. Whether it is working with the Mother Angela Clinic, visiting our neighbors in their homes, or having activities with the kids, it is all about giving themselves for others.

Dear God,

I let go of my need to be perfect, and I let You fill me with Your perfect love.

I let go of my ideas of fulfillment, and I let You fill me with what I truly desire.

I let go of what I think of myself, and I let You define my worth.

I let go of what others think of me, and I let You tell me who I am to You.

I let go of my appearance, and I let You shine through me.

I let go of my unreasonable standards, and I let You work through me.

I let go of my will for my life, and I let You reveal Your plan for me.

I let go of all of my past sins, and I let You forgive me.

I let go of my reliance on myself, and I let You be my Redeemer.

I let go of how I view others, and I let You love them through me.

—Kate Prain
