finding meaning in the ordinary

words by gem

thank you for your wisdom and divine timing that has propelled me to where i am.

during this new moon, cover me with a cloak of trust and obedience whenever i’m inclined to lean on my own understanding.

open my heart to the endless goodness that surrounds me and when my faith is running thin, remind me of the soft landings you’ve created for me many times before when i could only see as far as my eyes could reach.

i ask in the spirit of appreciation and complete knowing that you’ve got me.

and so it is.
