Beloved God, I am here. I long for a love that I have not known in this life. Reveal to me, reveal through me, the tenderness of the heart. That in this moment as I breathe in and breathe out, that love shines, that I be open, that I allow and I surrender to that which you are pouring forth in this moment. For it is said that we are one, yet reveal this to me Lord. Open me. I surrender this moment. Thank you.
