Lourene shared this prayer with me last week. I read it at the conclusion of my Bible class yesterday. Perhaps it will resonate with you as it did with us.
“Gracious God, sometimes I see my life as an unsolvable puzzle. My days move along rapidly, but the people and situations I encounter seem to make no sense. I consider and weigh carefully the decisions I think I should make, but find myself doing something completely opposite of what I thought I had decided. Then a moment of stillness comes, and I realize that all these random strands are actually part of the beautiful tapestry that is the journey of my life, and I am so grateful. Thank you, God, for leading me in paths I might never choose, and for giving the journey of my life a rich texture. Amen.”
