A Meditative Prayer (Personal)

Dear God,

The problem with being a pastor is that often people think I know all the answers when it comes to faith because of the position I hold.

But I don't have all the answers and am still on a journey of discovery.

The problem with being young is that often people think I do not understand the world around me because of my lack of earthly existence.

But I have witnessed and experienced things that stretch beyond my years.

The problem with being me is that often I find myself existing in the identifications others put upon me and I lose You, My God, the One who lives in and through me.  The One who formed me and molds me.  I lose my true identity in You.

Come Holy Spirit.  Guide me.  Transform me.  Identify me.  Amen.
