Even a gray day can be beautiful.
It’s all about who you’re walking with.
Thank you Lord for your lovingkindness,
Day after day smoothing the path ahead of us.
Providing for every need,
Sometimes in ordinary, routine ways that we hardly notice,
Sometimes in more surprising and unexpected ways.
But always – and this I want to never forget – always,
Regardless of the channel through which you provide for us,
You are the source.
Our source of life.
Our source of food to put on the table.
Our source of insight when that’s needed.
Our source of comfort when that’s what we need.
In your deep understanding you blur the tidy dividing lines
that separate us from each other,
Using even people who don’t yet know you
to serve your purposes and advance your Kingdom.
Thy Kingdom come, Lord Jesus.
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Even a gray day can be beautiful,
And even the autumn of a life.
It’s all about whose hand you’re resting in,
Whose strength you’re trusting in,
And where your heart calls home.
