It’s tempting, LORD, to put my faith
in your gifts
Rather than in you alone.
Good health enables early rising, satisfying productivity;
Strong legs: a swift gait;
Clarity of thought: a coherent paragraph;
An understanding friend: the comfort of being known.
I wonder though,
Could I share the Story?
Advance the Kingdom?
Or even get out of bed tomorrow,
if all your gifts were swept away?
Everything but you?
Father of Lights who shines the way to Truth,
forgive my prone-to-wander heart
and reset its wavering compass
to True North.
Blessings to you in this fresh, new year,
