If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me” (Ps. 139: 9-10).

Merciful God, too often we seek to flee from Your presence…when the world is too much with us, when temptation beckons, when we know we have failed.

So often these moments follow on the heels of our greatest presumed triumphs.

Despite our many weaknesses, You stand by us – waiting to draw us once again into Your arms. The wonder of this is beyond our understanding.

Hold us fast, Lord God. Never let us go, that we may yet do the work of the kingdom for which You intended us. We ask this in Jesus’ name.

Amen
