worth it

I cannot remember if i've ever shared a prayer that has ministered to me...if i have, it's worth sharing again...

Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up
that to be low is to be high
that the broken heart is the healed heart
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to possess all
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown
that to give is to receive
that the valley is the place of vision. Amen
(The Valley of Vision)
