Held in the arms of the Creator

Awesome Creator, quiet down the noise and speak in our silence. Connect us to Your Word by reconnecting us with each other. Capture our imagination. Lead us in Your direction as we lead others. Change the story that the world tells us because we cannot share in God’s love if we do not share in God’s compassion. Give us the strength to let go of limitations, mistakes and ego because only out of our nothingness can You create a new beginning and new possibilities.

Holding on to what was will only hold us back from living in the present, and we will miss life if we try too hard to shape the future.   All we have is now. All we have is God and each other. So let’s hold on to the truth, the truth that the created is forever held in the arms of the Creator one scarred hand to the other.

Give us life

I saw this picture at an office complex. You can see my reflection behind Jesus.  I kinda like that.

Lord God, we are grateful that You hear us…that You listen to each and every prayer that we lift up to You in this place and in our hearts.   Speak life into the darkness of death and prepare us now to receive Your forgiveness, grace and the new life that is given to us because of the sacrifice of Your only son, Jesus Christ.   Show us how this life works and let our hearts beat with the same pulse of Almighty God.  For it is You, Lord, who gives us worth because You value us.  You took on everything that is ugly about us and You put on all of our burdens on that cross.  You give us redemption.   You give us escape from the limitations of this world.  You give us life. And even though we don’t have it all together, and probably never will, You still look on us with love and remind us “that no matter how much time we’ve wasted in the past we still have infinite tomorrows with Jesus Christ.” (Billy Graham).   So as we confront the reality of the cross, let us remember, “it is not how many days we have left in our lives but it is how much life we have in our days that count.” (Ed Ly Stevenson).   Help us to live as You live in eternal grace.  In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
