a simple prayer


I come to you with the weariness of this moment, of this day, of this life.  I’ve carried things for so long, I have forgotten they are not of me, for me, or mine to carry.


I put them down so I may lift up your yoke of gentleness and humility.  My soul was made for the light and easy burden of your love and mercy.


Allow me to walk with you, my step following your step, my heart beating with yours, my breath in time with yours, so that, my soul might know the peace of your love and see your glory revealed.
