Unrest and calamity in the world and my surroundings, yet the world is not the world.
What I see and the stories I tell myself reflect my passions and feelings. Lord, meanwhile, you create the workings of the world for greater ends.
Where I see storms, you are bringing nourishment. Where I see trial, you are teaching resilience. Where I see discord, you are creating the conditions for healing.
Lord, grant me a glimpse of your better world. Grant me willingness to see and to do your will in it.
