Planning, planning, planning. This week all I do is plan and wait.

God, you only had to die once, and seriously, that must have been awful, but I have to go through it every year. So. Many. Services!

Okay, really, I’m sorry, I know this “isn’t about me” but…

You know what, no but. In God alone I trust. I trust you, God. I do. Forgive my pettiness. Forgive my selfishness. You will bring me from the depth of sorrow, you will allow me to grieve, and then, you will show me to celebrate once again.

Thanks be to God, Amen.

One thought on “Wednesday Prayer

  1. For 18 years, I planned and complained and whined and struggled. How to make Holy week new again? How to help my congregation enter into the experience, the horror, sadness, and then the unspeakable joy on Easter? I worried, I prayed, and worked. And now, that I don’t have a church, how I wish that I had trusted and relaxed and really appreciated the wonder of being chosen to lead a congregation at this time of year. I know how hard it is, but try to lean into the wonder of God’s love and trust that God will lead you and prepare your congregation. You really can’t do it yourself, no one can, but with God all things are possible.
