Life cycles

Oh Father, how our lives seem to go in cycles. One moment we’re on the top of the curve - praying for and ministering to others. The next thing we know, we become the “prayee” and the one being ministered to. How quickly these things happen.

Help us to see that “life” doesn’t always play fair. What can begin as a “joy ride” can so suddenly turn into a harrowing journey. Let us never place our trust in things of this world. May we always comfort, strengthen, and encourage ourselves with Your love, and delight in Your presence - regardless of the circumstances.

Now Father, we know, that is so much easier said, than lived - so much easier proclaimed than accomplished. Give us grace to see Your will, and allow us mercy to know Your peace.

In Jesus’ Name - Amen
