As worship ended yesterday – and the faithful set off
We who minister to them heaved a sigh…
As this day begins
And the faithful go about their business
and church is put on the shelf for another week
What do we do?
Is Monday a work day?
A rest day?
A Sabbath time?
Or a full-on busy, busy time?
Help me… to remember that, just as I told the flock yesterday, you are in every moment
You are the unseen guest at the table
the confidante when my mind is racing
the gentle arms that hold me when I’m feeling the rage bubbling up
the blessed balm for my anxious soul
You are in every moment
and every groan
and every leap
You are the constant
the forever friend – forever
Always there – especially when I forget to look for you
thank you for your presence
for being there, here, now
