I look into the sky with fragile hope,
My needs are known unto the Holy Lord;
I watch. I wait. And try to learn to cope.
And rest, believing in His every Word.
How easily distracted I’ve become.
I pray, but thoughts and prayers go all askew.
What little things divert my mind from Home;
what little things turn back my thoughts of You.
Lord, in the kindness of your mercy, I
can put my troubled heart and mind to rest.
Perhaps in stillness, rather than to try,
I’ll find your Presence and my heart be blessed.
Lord, forgive my flighty thoughts I pray—
And give me peace throughout this stressful day.
