Lord Jesus and
Holy Ruah (Hebrew for Spirit, Wind),
Thank you All, for You All.
You are faithful even when we are not.
You remember even when we forget.
You think about us
even when we jump into our own thinking
and don’t think about you
and don’t even want to think about you.
Thank you that nothing about us surprises or alarms or scandalizes you.
Thank you that you can sit in the heavens and chuckle over
earthly, fleshly, arrogant, selfish, sinful ways
because you have already seated your Son, Jesus, on his throne
and you know that your love will prevail and save us!
Thank you that you came by and found us
thank you that we have already confessed
(or right now, can confess!)
Jesus as our Lord.
Thank you that we have prayed the prayer
Jesus’ taught us to pray:
“thy name, thy kingdom and thy will be done”
which gives you
our permission to get it done in us
in spite of our old self.
So, we cannot continue in sin.
And, our new self is delighted that
you are stronger than our old self,
and that you are winning and will win
over our games, stupidity, and earthly pride.
