Lord, make me an instrument, an agent of your grace in a world that is desperate for you. I am imperfect and broken. My life is not tidy or neat. Even in my messiness, use me. Right here in this very place let change begin with me.
Sarah McLachlan sings, “Prayer of St. Francis” so beautifully. May we each be inspired to be an agent for change right where we are and with the unique gifts and calling that we are each given through Jesus.
I hope your weekend is filled with moments of grace and wonder. Thank you for your support and words of encouragement as I embark on my blogging journey and our family embraces the full life we have in Jesus. I am ever grateful.
The words from the song Prayer of St. Francis
Lord make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
O divine master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive-
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it’s in dying that we are born to eternal life.
In love and grace,
