We continued to build the wall. All of it was joined together, and it reached half of its intended height because the people were eager to work.
So, since we have such a hope, we act with great confidence.
One of the most amazing things, to me is that God is not just the God of the spectacular. Not just the God of the wonders of the sky and sea, miracles, a voice coming from a burning bush, or of angels singing at the birth of redemption for all mankind. The God we know is the God of ordinary days, of work to be done, fueled by the hope and certainty of the loving presence of our Creator.
My ancient Celtic ancestors had a particular appreciation of God’s presence in everyday life. For our prayer today, I offer these words from Celtic Daily Prayer: from the Northumbria Community, Copyright ©1989 by the Northumbria Community:
This day is your gift to me;
I take it, Lord, from Your hand and thank You for the wonder of it.
All that I am, Lord I place in your hands.
All that I do, Lord, I place in your hands.
Everything I work for, I place in your hands.
Everything I hope for, I place in your hands.
The troubles that weary me, I place in your hands.
The thoughts that disturb me, I place in your hands.
Show me what a blessing it is that I have work to do.
And sometimes, most of all, when the day is overcast and my courage faints,
let me hear Your voice saying,“You are my beloved one, in whom I am well pleased.”
Help me find my happiness in my acceptance of what is Your purpose for me:
in friendly eyes, in work well done, in quietness born of trust, and, most of all,
in the awareness of Your presence in my spirit.
