Promises, promises...


Luke 6:38
A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”

Really, Lord
A good measure?
Pressed down,
shaken together,
running over...
I want to believe that.
But some days,
it’s hard to see.
Some days,
it feels like giving 
until there is nothing left to give
and spent,
wrung out,
running on empty,
still more is required.
On those days, Lord
remind us of your promise
surround us with your presence
keep on trying 
to attract our attention
until we see you
shining through the rainbow
dancing in the puddles
whispering in the breeze
with your love
and your laughter
with the updraft
of your amazing grace
and timely love
poured out
until your spirit
overflows once more
in us.
