Life can be tough to navigate, God,

so much that is uncertain,

so much that is unpredictable;

so many detours,

so many uncharted paths;


And yet, amazingly, you do not leave us to find our way alone;

In your grace we find a path,

a compass,

a guide;

Your grace is a shelter, open for anyone who wants in,

and it does offer protection

from the worst of whatever storms we may face.


And though we know we haven’t done anything to earn it,

we thank you that we can find rest,

in the midst of life’s turbulence,

in the shelter of your grace.
