Checked the Weather Yet? — part 3

June 25, 2018

As we plan what to wear based on the weather at the start of this new work week, some of us need to pray this prayer written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer —

O God, early in the morning I cry to you.
Help me to pray
And to concentrate my thoughts on you:
I cannot do this alone.
In me there is darkness,
But with you there is light;
I am lonely, but you do not leave me;
I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help;
I am restless, but with you there is peace.
In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience.

Especially this next line:

I do not understand your ways

I sure don’t.

I sure have a few questions.

Okay, so have more than a few.

Like a warehouse full of unanswered questions. And they’re coming with me into this new week.

Anybody else?
