Well, after the amazing spiritual high I wrote about yesterday, today has been something of an anti-climax, which perhaps isn’t very surprising. I feel exhausted, empty and dispirited, entirely devoid of inspiration.
However, I still have a few unpublished prayers in hand, so after a lot of thought, I’ve decided to continue posting until everything suitable has been used. If no fresh insights have come to me by then, I will have to bring this blogsite to a close, either for a while, or permanently. This prospect makes me very sad, but if it happens, I will have to accept it.
Anyway, for the moment, here is a short prayer I wrote some weeks ago:
Please help me
To let go
Again and again
To be different
From how I am.
The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:21; NIV).
Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble? (Job 2:10; NIV).
