Resolve to Amend (next day repost)

I tend to want to fix

what’s wrong,

of course, the problem is

what I see amiss.

While dysfunction

suits me well,

disordered affections

must be resolved.

Grateful consolation

changes

me, makes me different,

and I’ll never be the same.

Accepting desolation

alters

the prescripted fit

with a measured response.

Indifference to outcomes

adjusts

the working order

to include all.

Yielding to restoration

modifies

my responsibility

to the greater good.

I face shortcomings,

embrace pardon,

and exercise freedom –

I resolve to amend.

Eagerness (next day repost)

Help me to serve well,

to respond to your loving-kindness,

with loving-kindness to all,

knowing that you are present in all I meet.

May I walk in confidence,

knowing that the Spirit inspires me

and wants me to share the truth

with all who cross my path.

Help me respect each person,

and share the journey with them

I do not walk alone

and need my neighbor’s communion

May all enjoy the dignity of work

and do what God wants done

I am prepared to talk the talk and walk the walk

and enjoy the harmony.

and needs to own.

Charity contributes

and wants to share.

Promote Peace.

What I Want (next day re-post)

God, have pity on me

for I am a sinner.

Help me, to love always

in all ways.

Help me, to be aware of Your call

and attentive with my answer.

Let me see

what You see

Let me hear

what You hear

Give me, the courage

to praise, reverence, and serve You

Give me the patience

to continue despite my lack of awareness

Give me the strength

to persevere and find harmony with You

Let it be so

Evolution (next day repost)

us loving God

does not make us good.

God loving us

makes us good.

Love changes –

blessings count

and graces exceed,

we rise and we fall.

For the common good,

imprints and imposes

a quid pro quo justice…

and retribution rules.

Love changes –

mutations

are random expressions

of relationship.

For the greater good,

expands and expects

a merciful justice…

and restoration embraces.

Love changes –

with God, we evolve

trust the goodness,

enjoy the harmony.
