A Blessing for Spiritual Directors

A Blessing for Spiritual Directors
May your new endeavor excite your heart,
Kindle in your mind a creativity
To journey beyond old limits.
May this venture challenge you toward
New frontiers that will emerge
As you begin to approach them,
Calling forth from you the full force
And depth of your undiscovered gifts.
May this venture fit the rhythms of your soul
Enabling you to draw from the invisible
New ideas and a vision that will inspire.
Remember to be present and listen deeply
To those who seek you for direction.
May you have the grace of encouragement
To awaken the gift in the other’s heart,
Building in them the confidence
To follow the call of their gifts.
