God the Creator, you involve us in the world we inhabit, you care for all our needs. In faith and trust help us to share our concerns with each other, recognising that we are joined by our humanity. Help us to work with integrity and confidence. Trusting in your loving care. Amen.
The people of God have a human face. We laugh, we weep, we wait in hope. We lift our eyes, and we stub our toes, we love, we struggle, we fail, we stand and always stand on trembling ground.
But God is God and Jesus is Christ and the Spirit will always lift up our feet. God is in the centre, God is at our ending. Nothing lies beyond the love of God in Christ.
The Lord is my pacesetter, I shall not rush; He makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals. He provides me with images of stillness, which restore my serenity; He leads me in ways of efficiency through calmness of mind, His guidance is peace. Even though I have a great many things to accomplish each day, I will not fret, his presence is here. His timeliness, His all importance will keep me in balance. He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of activity by anointing my mind with His oils of tranquility. My cup of joyous energy overflows. Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours, for I shall walk in the pace of my Lord, and dwell in His house forever.
