“With wondrous deliverance you answer us,
O God our savior.
You are the hope of all the earth,
And of far distant seas.” Ps.65:6
“Better than “
“Some people say it couldn’t get any worse, and others say it can
Some people hide their faces in the sand
And if I bow low enough
Maybe I could understand
We are all apart of this
Wherever, whatever we think
If only there could be a light in the hiding
A hope in the silence and the shouting
Once again a prophet will arise
With a dream of a better than
We can even dare to enter in
A hope that stirs
An action within to be better than
and live better than and
love better than before.
Yes it will get worse, but God is better than
and will do better things when we can raise our heads up high into the sky and proclaim his ways are good and his beauty will save this world.”
Let us open our eyes to see his beauty in the face of the other
The face of our beloved, his beauty in us.
Pause and take in God creating a space for beauty in you this day and pray,
Beautiful savior, beautiful Lord, we bow before you in our hearts today,
humbly in need of your eyes to see.
May your beautiful spirit of hope rise up within us to pray a better than is now,
May we look for your gift of grace to empower us to believe your ways of redemption and not receive the spirit of fear the world casts upon us.
We stand in unity as one with you, here now, to bring the peace you died for.
May we mend our ways to encourage one another to live in your peace and in the love that you give us.
Come Holy Spirit and renew the face of the earth.
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Cor.13:11-14, Proverbs 8:19
