Let Us Know The Joy of Living

i see the sympathy of heaven in the earth and wind and trees
i see hope within the morning sun

i am searching for meaning
i am looking for healing
i am haunted by your reflection
i was blinded by my addictions
i am torn apart by the dying
i am giving up on escaping
will i learn to live without taking
will i learn to see beauty in the making

I can’t pretend to know
the beginning from the end
But there’s beauty in the life that’s given
we may bless or we may curse
every twist and every turn
will we learn to know the joy of living.

will we learn to know the joy of living.

—United Pursuit, “Looking for A Savior”

Father, let us not allow the messiness of every day life, the entanglement of sin, distress, and yuckiness of the day to day casualties of life get in the way or complicate the way we see the wonder, glory, and beauty of life, the earth we live in and the day we walk through. Let us learn the joy of living. Let us learn the joy of living and being present. Here. Still alive. Let us learn the joy of living. Looking into heaven, let us learn to receive the love, mercy, and purity You enjoy giving us anew everyday. Let us appreciate the day to day life you have given us. Let us all take one day at a time and appreciate the miracles you lay before us everyday. And Father, continue to reveal the inner working of Your grace, faith, strength and sincere love so that the glory you have awaited to make known is seen in us. God, I thank you for today. I love you God.

In Jesus Name, I pray,

Amen.
