Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” ~John 20:29
As I sit here contemplating today,
considering the plethora of possibilities
storming my gates and crowding my mind,
I ask you for the power
you used to calm the sea of Galilee-
to quiet the chaos within me.
Allow me peace throughout the day
to share with others along the way.
Give me focus, strength and joy
in abundance to employ,
blessing those you have for me,
and those with whom I keep company-
that I might be salt and light,
one like Paul-
who fights the good fight…
faithful in the little things,
confident of what it brings
to those who hunger and thirst for grace,
but find it not in this stark place.
Give me wisdom, a heart like yours,
as I follow through Your open doors,
though some refuse-
heeding your call, I’ve nothing to lose-
for you are the one who loves my soul…
Hold tightly my reins,
guide me to your goals-
satisfy me with
your sure delight-
Ever present, though not in sight.
