A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.

Grace Be in Me

Spirit of Truth,

Be the breath that fills me now…

Apart from you I am empty and alone;

Enfolded by you I share in love’s full vigor,

The present embrace of a timeless God.

This pilgrimage is a lonely one at times—

Lonely yet endowed with joy,

And full of the holy silence

That whispers to me always…

That I am not alone.

But I am a poor pilgrim;

Oh, make me a better one.

Grace be in me and upon me,

Life’s breath, and hope of my hope;

Grace be in me and upon me,

Until I know of naught but you;

Grace be in me and upon me,

And make me one with you.
