It isn’t as if the world had slipped out of God’s hands.
Sometimes what we react to is the sense that our hands have slipped off the wheel.
But we believe in history.
The world is not a roll of the dice
On its way toward chaos.
A new world is always emerging
Spring to Summer to Fall to Winter to Spring again.
A God who knows sorrow and pain
A God who knows what it is to have enemies and soul bonded friends
Hate failed when
You become the definitive smile for humankind.
We accept the struggles and challenges.
We march on in the moment mindful that we are exploring the future with every passing minute. And that we do not go on this journey alone.
You are with us. You are eternal.
Beyond the crushing of the day’s gravity,
There is the shout of victory when the sun goes down and we are still standing up!
So teach us to give voice
To our new life always emerging
Because the tears of stress
And the fear of the unknown will disappear
Like seasons that pass.
Like we are in the changing seasons,
You are in our changing lives
