God, help me find your rhythm in the irregularities of life. Let me find your steady beat In the strange. Free my mind and soul to ride The sound waves of your call. And give me the grace to improvise.
God, thank you for the capacity to dream, to imagine what could be, to look beyond ourselves and this time—the now. God, teach us to live in gratitude for this gift, so we may not only dream but also realize and come to know more loving ways, the flourishing of creation, your justice and peace— a world more reflective of your beautiful reign.
O God, how tricky it can be to change, to turn away from comforting habits that harm snd to welcome a better way with all its unfamiliarity and strangeness. God, teach us to trust in your ways even when our bodies, hearts, and minds say no. Help us find the “yes” we hold— the “yes” implanted in our souls.
In conversations, laughter, and play, Through imagination, wonder, connection, and prayer, in a collection of little moments that added to something great, I felt a lift in my spirit. I sensed your presence near. I knew you were there, God. And so, I look back at my day with this thankful prayer. Amen.
It’s difficult to know the significance of a moment in the moment, so when we do it’s transcendent, difficult to express, hard to convey, just deeply known. And it can be so enlightening to review the work we do, to return to the moments that passed quickly by, to think of the small blessings, the people, the smiles, the Spirit of God we somehow missed in the moment.
Synchronicity Your Spirit in time Not just a moment or Coincidence, but something Holier than that, connected moments Rich with significance Of memories and more Never fully known Infinitely knowable Cultivating wonder Inviting reflection, pointing us Toward knowing Your Spirit in time
When things don’t go my way And I clench my fists And my head aches And my hands tremble And I don’t know what to do Show me where grace resides The grace I buried down deep inside The grace I haven’t tended And won’t let grow But that hasn’t gone away Remind me of your grace, O God The grace all around me The grace found within Your grace that remains Amen
