As much as in all riches.
I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.
As the leaves make their change
may I also shed my sin for grace
when the last leaf falls
may my faith tumble deeper
while I watch the storms
scatter each fallen leaf
help my heart to float upon
the wind of Your breath
carrying me gently until I can land
gratefully, peacefully into Your hands
of safety and rest.

O Lord, as we enter into this week may our feet walk in faith and the knowledge that You are with us. As we journey into the middle of the week, help us to keep our focus on You and You alone. Not letting the hard parts of the week weigh us down. As we end the week, may it be on the breath of Your wings carrying us safely into the weekend where we can rest in You.
When we encounter difficult situation or difficult people, may we extend grace upon grace. When we feel burdened by circumstances, help us to remember You are at the end of the driveway waiting with open arms for us to run to You.
Thank You, Lord, for the afflictions of this world. For without the afflictions, our hearts would be afloat, drifting on the wind, never finding a sure place to land and feel secure.
Today I choose to trust You Lord. Today I choose to believe that You are here with me. Today I choose You.
