Dear God, may I never take for granted this gift of time

Dear God ,

Time runs away from me and I’ve found myself distracted and lost .

I look back and see every second ,every minute and every hour that has been wasted when I turned my eyes away from you.

I am simply too weak to be trusted with an hour .

I am too weak to go without a minute relying on your grace and too proud to not need your mercy in the making of a second .

May I surrender to you in every second that I feel tempted to look away .

May I cling to you in every half of a minute that my soul begins to be tortured by darkness. May I run to you in every minute that my soul feels restless and in need of distraction .

And in 60 of those minutes may I utter praises and words of thanksgiving in place of curses and regret .

May every thread that creates the fabric of time be filled with my desire to never leave you and lose sight of who I am in you .

May every thread that creates the fabric of time be filled with my desire to never leave you and lose sight of who I am in you .

May I never lose sight of my mortality .

For even a half of a second of refusing your goodness and choosing to sin is like an eternity of dying and suffering after death .

May I never take for granted the gift that is time .

The time I have to live in you and for you .

I surrender my seconds , my minutes , my hours .

They are yours now and forever.


Your daughter ,

Lyss
