Wednesday Prayers: Enough

I put off this weekly post all day today. Every time I thought about it, I felt stuck: what do I need, what do I have to share?

Until finally: today, I have enough. There are unresolved, unanswered problems. But for today, I'm OK. For today, I can live without knowing the solutions. I have been given my daily bread-- enough to sustain me, for this one day. I can live with where I am.

There are days to plead with God, to remember that God invites those pleas-- "Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone?" (Mt. 7:9). But today, I have already been given enough.

How about you? Is it a time to rest, or a time to reach?

"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
