“Let me learn by paradox”

There is an old Puritan prayer called The Valley of Vision. In it, one prayer speaks of the paradox of life. It’s a great read—nice and short but powerful. A favorite part reads:

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.
