a prayer for a sunny wednesday afternoon.
Lord. It is amazing to think of the care you take with me.
The world you made, the sun that shines, the breeze that blows, the friends who support, the story that inspires, and your Spirit that empowers.
All of it given. Just given away.
Today I can thank you.
So often, Lord, I forget that you give so much. Too often I take it and walk away from you. I assume it was all there just for me to take. I forget that it was not “just there” it exists at your prerogative, you put it there…and ask for nothing in return.
Lord. Remind me today that you give the opportunity to be known by you. That you are the one who has the capacity to give me the world and you invite me to be known by you. Remind me that to be known by you is to breathe. To be known by you is to live.
Today, Lord, let me live.
