This is prayer for those who are making the changes
Who are doing the hard things.
Who are saying goodbye.
Who have accepted that death is a part of resurrection.
This is a prayer for all those who know, in their heart of hearts,
that normal isn’t real anyway.
That Jesus doesn’t hang out with the normal people in the first place,
and that the tiny hurts, that you are uncovering, are real, and valid, and it’s ok that they feel lonesome.
This is prayer for those who feel like its just one thing too many…
it that you feel like its your own failing: your too old or too young or too weird or too poor, too tired or just too whatever to handle it.
Because Jesus knows, she knows, and she will swoop down, like a mother bird, and wrap you her wings, and love you to her bosom, and hug you
til you remember you are too whatever, and still beloved,
somehow both and.
Here’s a prayer for moving on,
because we humans are made to transition all the time, and yet emotionally it is like the hardest thing to do
Why is that God?
And we are in the midst of some big Apocalyptic transition thing
From Pre-Pandemic to
Not Post pandemic.
But whatever it looks like
Here’s a prayer for that
For all of us
Help us as we do this thing, and love us through we pray.
