It is no small thing

To trust is no small thing.
For fear can build high walls,
seemingly impossible to climb,
yet we are called to trust God,
fleeting over those high walls on the wings of grace.
Our emotions and feelings can be untrue,
God’s love and Word are always trustworthy
we can entrust ourselves into the arms
of our Loving Father,
as revealed in Jesus Christ.

 

Inner stormy seas

Lord, help me to keep it simple,
to simply get through this day,
embracing all that comes my way,
and try to become a little more loving
by day’s end.
If not, to begin again in hope, trust, and love.
To look to you, and not myself.

O Lord as I walk
the often inner stormy seas. 
Keeping it simple is often difficult for one such as me.
