Help us, O God, as we journey through our personal wildernesses. May we feel your presence every step of the way. We know that there will be times when we will be tempted to make decisions that may be selfish. We may have to make touch choices, guide us to make those choices by measuring them by how they express love. Love for you, others and ourselves. May we know that our desires are not always our needs and that shortcuts often weaken the foundation of our identity. May our actions be a blessing to those around us this and everyday. Amen.
