A Monday Prayer

Faith is not science. Faith transcends logic as love transcends calculations. Faith is not statistics but a relationship with God that over time makes one wise, not certain.

Scot McKnight

Lord, keep me from the propensity to want to be right and certain and puffed up with knowledge.

Meet me in the mystery.

Teach me to love well and live in the grace of you loving me well. Help me to know—really know—that I’m beloved, as is everyone else I will encounter today.

Remind me that my struggles are not with man nor mandates and that your way might not look like the way of the world. Help me to discern the difference.

And meet me in the mystery.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
