Monday Meditation
God of endless grace,
thank you.
Thank you
for one more chance
to get things right.

One more chance
to tell you “I love you”
and hear you whisper,
“I love you, too.”

One more chance
to seek forgiveness
from people I’ve wronged,
and from myself
because sometimes,
the worst bully I’ve ever encountered
is me.

Thank you for one more chance
to defeat the bullies in my mind,
and in our world,
merely by recognizing
and becoming
the love we need.

I call you Holy
and thank you
for one more chance
to fully surrender my life
to you.

Thank you for one more chance,
one more day,
one more week,
one more month,
one more year,
one more life,
one more resurrection.

Thank you for making me new,
over and over
and over again.

Thank you for the gift of patience
as I learn to follow
in the footsteps of our teacher,
Jesus, the anointed one,
who shows us your intimate, everlasting love.

In the name of love
and the manner of Jesus
I will practice giving
and receiving
grace,
mercy
compassion,
forgiveness
and hope.

And with every day
of this new life,
I will thank you, Lord.
Thank you
for one more chance
to get things right.

Amen.
