"Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on me"
Holy and Mysterious One, you breathe life into creation and there is vitality, potential, and always...hope. None of us escapes life's rollercoaster of sorrow and joy, of laughter mixed with the bittersweet tears of grief. And yet, your Spirit inspires us to rise to another day and face whatever may come. Some days that action of leaning into another day is not a simple one.
For some, leaning into the day means leaning into pain, or loss, or despair. God, I think of people who are caregivers of their loved ones, now in their own physical and emotional pain as they lose their independence along with their wellness.
For others, leaning into the day means greeting new joys and adventures. Surely your Spirit rejoices with those celebrating all the best that life has to offer -- love, a sense of vocation, and beauty itself.
Gracious God, may your Spirit breathe upon us all, whatever we may lean into this day, bringing new life and refreshment of the spirit where it is needed most. Strengthen and enliven our relationship to you, O God, and in doing so, bring us closer to one another. Amen.
