In the Midst

In the Midst

In the midst…

listen

sing

cook

pray

struggle

weep

when it doesn’t make sense

overwhelmed and burdened

of community

alone

carrying

working

sitting

being

listen

we are always

in the midst

of something

and in

these somethings

we are

in the midst

of God.

God,

your light

fills me each day

for it is greater

than my shadows

and the world’s darkness.

Your light

awakens me

to living in you,

with you, for you.

Your light

a lamp unto my feet

a guide for my path

a consistent presence

calling me

to truth,

to life,

to fullness

to beauty,

to see you.

 

God,

you are always

here with me

in the midst.

Amen.
