Psalm 51:5-6 (from The Message)

“I’ve been out of step with you for a long time, in the wrong since I was born. What you’re after is truth from the inside out. Enter me, then; conceive a new, true life.”river sunrise

In these days of reflection and prayer, I am conscious of my shortcomings – of how easily I can settle into merely going through the motions rather than being fully present with family, friends, work, and most important, with God. The days of life flow by and I’m swept up into its current. When I go to God in silence and listen attentively I am deeply aware that this is a time to correct the course, to give myself more fully to the One who at the dawning of each moment gently and lovingly offers me a fresh start, a time to grow closer and be more fully who I am created to be.

Only the God of Hope can see it all, the world and my own small part in it, and still offer unwavering patience, undeserved grace and love without end that encourages me to try again in every moment. It is the ultimate “do-over.” Thanks be to God. Amen.
