Yet another chance

Lord,

You give me
Yet another chance:

It’s not too late to join 
Your ceaseless dance;

For when I eat your flesh,
And drink your blood,   

You make me fit to share 
Your dance of love.

To live at one with you.

Now

Now

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).

Father,
The past is done,
And only you
Know how much time
I have left here.

So I want to thank you
For this present moment,
Because every now
Is a fresh chance 
to serve you.

Please help me to rejoice
And pray continually,
Thanking you
In all circumstances.

May I always be ready
To step forward,
Offering others
Love and service,
For the sake of your dear Son.

I ask this in his precious name,
Amen.
