Pray, We Find God’s Path
not the dead ‘fake gold’ of once green leaves.
It’s beautiful, even if the leaves are now dead and soon ugly brown.
Turn now, everyone of you, from your evil way and wicked doings, and you will remain upon the land that the Lord has given to you and your ancestors from of old and for ever.
For I delight in the law of God in my inmost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind, making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
Words of Grace For Today
In every generation God calls us in many and various ways to be aware of Good and Evil and to choose to serve God, and God alone.
In every generation we fail, miserably; each and everyone of us.
Thank God our acceptance by God is not dependent on our choices, actions, thoughts and wishes or dreams.
God exercises Grace for us.
And we pray that we will be able to choose to turn from evil, even as we know we are still bound to sin.
It is a wonder that humans do anything good at all. It is a miracle that humans do any good at all. It is a commonplace Grace that the Holy Spirit pulls out of us, our thoughts, our words, our actions and inaction many things that serve God and are Good.
When we take time, God’s will is a delight to immerse oneself in. Being sure one immerses oneself in God’s Will can be a whole other (impossible and frightening) thing.
By Grace alone ….
Still, after we know that God accepts us, ‘warts’ and all, then it is a pure delight to strive in all of life, each moment, to serve God, and God alone.
Wonders never cease!
