Day 29 of Advent: yet hope for us

Day 29 of Advent: yet hope for us December 27, 2015

Jesus,

I go from one extreme to the other;

I think that we’re the scum of the earth,

and then I see someone do something

lovely,

and I think that maybe we’re not so bad.

So whatever we are,

I recognize today that there is hope.

Whatever we are,

I believe You see us wholly,

that You’re capable of sheltering us

from ourselves

and bringing out those

bright shining sparkles

that make us so

incredibly beautiful.

So today, 

we trust You,

and so we’ll be ourselves,

and let You mold something 

good out of all that we are,

scum and loveliness and all. 

Amen.
