Prayer and Reflection
This Christmas I had the opportunity to write the material for a Christmas Prayer Journey, which invited people to a time of private reflection and prayer while walking around a beautiful acreage. This Christmas season has been hard for me, as I am sure it has been for many of us. Writing the poetry and reflections accompanying this prayer walk was a helpful and healing process for me, and I have heard such encouraging words from those who have been able to participate. I hope that you can be blessed by it too.
I knew that it was coming,
I knew that it was time.
That Christmas brought both joy and pain,
Is yours a bit like mine?
Let me stand beside you,
Place your hand in mine.
The ache of grief can find its voice
Within this love divine.
Resting in Christmas
You look so tired and troubled—
Life’s storm is raging wild;
But for this moment sit and rest.
Simply be my child.
These tears are not forever,
In me your fears are gone.
Behold, I’m making all things new,
And joy shall be your song.
If you’d like to create a Christmas Walk for yourself, or just read through the booklet, you are welcome to download a copy for yourself. I hope that it blesses you this Christmas season!
