By Stephen W. Hiemstra
Stay with me this morning
as the snow is all around and
I am not sure where to go.
Is it snow or is it just the morning fuzz in my eyes
fuzz that seems to take hold of me and hem me in
until I shake it off in the gym
Stay with me this afternoon
as I wander from task to task and from chat to chat.
Deepen my thoughts.
Raise my awareness.
Help to become a better companion.
Someone helpful on the journey, not someone just taking up space.
Stay with me this evening
as my strength flags and
my desire to push on grows extreme.
In the power of your Holy Spirit,
grant me that strength
and insights to create and cherish and share
before the night takes its toll
and I fade with the light.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
