Walking with God

Dear God,

I miss You when I don’t sense Your presence.  But I know that You are not withdrawing from me, that it is I who have become preoccupied with mundane matters.  I would seek to bring to mind and heart only those matters that count for something in the grand scheme of things.

Alert me to the important.  Keep me safely thinking, saying, doing, those things that are consistently helpful to my brothers and sisters as well as kind to them.

May my brothers and sisters, and I, together walk into the sunlight with You today.

Amen.

Kind

Dear God,

This day is the first day of the rest of my life.  May I make it worth something, to the world, to my husband, to my friends, to me.  May no word of complaint cross my lips.  There is always plenty to praise.

Help me to reach out to anyone who needs a kind word today.  Let me be a conduit for Your love.

Thank You.

Amen.
