Omega

omega

Omega, I’m relieved that You have the final say…in life, work, relationships, politics, wars, and death. Not that I don’t question Your ways and Your timing, but You knew we wouldn’t fully understand Your divine agenda. What brings me comfort and peace is realizing that, even when I don’t “get it”, I can trust Your…

Day Brightener

Day Brightener

Day Brightener, I awakened at dawn as the morning sun dappled my pillow. Thank You for the reassurance You have pressed into creation that affirms Your presence and overriding care. Today is packed full of responsibility, but for now I bask in the quietness of these refreshing moments. Later, when I am knee-deep in my…

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages, I need a solid place to stand. This tilt-a-whirl world makes me wobbly. Disasters, floods, wars, and terrorists spread like plagues throughout the land. Headlines tout insurrection of Your ways. Values thin. Apathy breeds. Negligence abounds. Waken my sensibilities to Your high calling. Cause me to rise out of apathy’s ashes and…

Way Maker

Way Maker

Way Maker, this morning started off like a crooked path. Things were not going the way I had hoped. Irritations rubbed against my emotions like grit in a sandal. It’s taken years, but You’ve taught me that I–and others–do not need to be victims of my moods. You have taught me to gird up my…

Merciful Messenger

Merciful Messenger

Merciful Messenger, deliver me from the wasteland of excuses. I long to leave a rich history, footprints for others to follow. Yet I’m often guilty of idleness. Spark fervor within me so those who come after me will find a clear path to You. Speak life into any barren agendas I have, that they might…

Friend of Sinners

Friend of Sinners

Friend of sinners, forgive my self-serving ways. Teach me how to take care of myself without my exacting unnecessary payment from others. Teach me servanthood without my turning it into martyrdom. Teach me success without my allowing it to inflate my ego. Thank you, Jesus, for not shunning me for my ragged righteousness. Or abandoning…

Heaven’s Glory

Heaven's Glory

Heaven’s Glory, I witness the declaration of Your presence above me. Pillow-tufted clouds. Scattered sunrays falling on garden floors. Winds, fluttering flags, ringing chimes, lifting kites. Endless blue skies canopying the earth. Your handiwork shouts, sings, and whispers to us of Your divine fingerprints, holy kisses, and sacred embraces. When I am warmed by the…

Promise Keeper

promise keeper

Promise Keeper, did You mean it when You said, “Love your enemies”? Because I’m struggling to love even those I genuinely care for. I justify my emotional limitations on their behavior, but I know better. My responses are my daily business before You. Reveal my inconsistencies, that I might experience greater wholeness. Expose my narrowness,…

Living Well

living well

Living Well, I thirst. My soul is arid. The unrelenting winds of hardship have left me parched. My mind wanders from one mirage to another until I remember that You quench my thirst. Your Word becomes mercy drops to my brittle bones. Your voice is morning dew. A sense of Your presence is summer rain.…

Word of Life

Word of Life

Word of Life, advise me. My thoughts can spark words that cause harm; I know that was not Your intention. Instead, may I speak life-giving words. Help me to proclaim Your liberty to fear-bound captives. I want the wounded to find shelter in my conversations with them. Thank you for those along life’s journey who…
