A Home in God’s Heart

Today’s Reflection

ON THE PALM OF YOUR HAND you write my name, O God.
Through the pages of creation, my life unfolds.
In the chambers of your heart, I have a home, O God,
where every cry is heard, every tear seen,
every thanks
whispered in the dark or sung to the morning
is known to you.
And still, I am slow to thank, to ask, to trust.
O God, who is great and good,
help me to pray.

    Father – thank You for the beauty of this writing and the magnitude of truth that it holds. Thank You for hearing my cry and holding me.

    Thankful for good weather, a safe trip, a good meeting, and a wonderful visit with my son. Very thankful that he can move to a place where more opportunities are available for him. Thankful to be home. Thank You, Lord.

    Today’s prayer says so much so well with a few words. Yes. Lord, I gladly pray this prayer. God has blessed us with someone with the gift of prayer writing.

    The preparation for the salvation of the world is coming to an end, salvation starts on the evening of Maunday Thursday and will be completed Easter morning. Lord, without Your work, the world is lost. Through You we are saved. Thank You, Lord.

    As we remember the first communion, Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection may you be filled with the living Christ and the Holy Spirit.
    In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

    A beautiful prayer. I pour out my heart to You. I put my trust in You. Today and every day I pray for my precious daughter, son-in-law and grandson.

    Wishing God’s blessings to all.

    It comforts me, Lord, to know that my name is written on the palm of your hand. Thank you for yesterday, today and tomorrow. Amen
