Father, When Joseph and Mary frantically searched for the missing 12 years old Jesus, they were looking for a boy; but the Jesus they found in the temple was now a young man who new His mission & the purpose for which He was on earth. Lord, letting go of people or projects we have nurtured can be very difficult. It is both sweet & painful to see our children growing into adults, group members into group leaders. But when the times comes for me to step back, help me do so graciously and let them soar to the heights You intended for them. May I not hinder them to from becoming the persons You meant them to be.
