“Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.”
Just as God worked through David, and countless other saints who have gone before us, God works through us. It takes courage to be willing to reflect on where God’s hand has upheld us and uplifted us in our life. It takes courage to admit that, however much we want to rely on our smarts, our talents, or our strength, we need God even more. Can we trust that God’s story continues, and to reflect on where our life may be a vital part of that story?
Prayer (based on a Hasidic song, as found in Joan Chittister’s God Speaks in Many Tongues):
Wherever I go, only Thou!
Wherever I stand, only Thou!
Just Thou, again, Thou
