FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Jesus, seeker of friends,
even when others expected little of you
you found the joy to bring much from them.

Nurture our imaginations, so that when we are given little,
we can expect much,
and in so doing,
see a harvest where others were planning for poverty.

We ask this because we flourish in kindness,
and we know that you made kindness flourish.

Amen.

It’s me that God wants, not a hypothetical, polished version of me. And as I look more intently at his face, I’m sure I will find myself changed. But that’s God’s work to do, not mine. I’ve only got one job: draw near.”  Claire Jones
