Rise Above

Lord,

thank you that I am exactly where you want me to be,

in the place, position, amongst the people

you have called me.

Forgive me Lord

for asking why for so long,

wanting to run and jump ship,

complaining and grumbling,

living myopic,

for man’s approval,

fleeting acknowledgement,

and missing you this whole time.

I praise you when I’m brought low,

my face turns up to seek you,

I praise you when I’m misunderstood, unseen,

you are the God who sees and knows me,

I praise you when I feel unvalued, overlooked,

my work is for the audience of One.

Give me eyes to see you in this world,

to perceive your kingdom

and to declare your heart and your Words.

Help me to rise above in spirit,

and I will bless your Name always.

I praise you Lord.

Amen.
