Open to Mystery


Holy One, whose strength is present in this moment,
We inhale all that is good and are renewed. We exhale releasing the love and mercy you have given, into our world. When we face grief and pain, deliver us into a mystery that is larger than we can imagine. Shape our unique identities us as we navigate the complexities of faithful living. Keep our hearts open to you so that we can find rest and peace. Strengthen us for this day with your breath of life.  Amen.

Do you not know your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, who you have received from God?                                                                          1 Corinthians 6:19

  1. Thank you Janet. I am experiencing the tenth anniversary of the loss of Dustin. It feels like forever yet simultaneously it feels like yesterday. I thank God for the glimpses I get of his mercy and plan, but I often struggle with my sinful nature. As much as I attempt to do good, I struggle with being merciful to myself and others. When I read your prayers, I feel God’s calming presence. I know you are struggling with grief and I am sure it is still quite fresh. You are such a blessing and I truly miss your presence and leadership at our church. That said, I know you are called now to be where you are and you are providing a light to those you lead. Continued blessings Janet. 💞

    • Benita, thank you for your kind words and for sharing your journey with me. I remember that Dustin called you and I hope that one gesture reminds you how much he loved you, even when he was suffering. Ten years, I can’t even imagine. Much love to you and Wes.
