Dear God, the day is strewn with trials. Challenges of all sizes and kinds. I so easily fall into this illusion, and see my life as filled with battle after battle, trouble after trouble.
In truth, for the most part I walk untouched. Problems remain distant. They do not come to pass, or they are resolved without effort on my part.
Lord, let me recognize the peace I already have. The enemies I face are merely shadows on a screen. They distract me.
This is the real challenge you set: to recognize your love for me, for all. Lord, let me see you, already here.
