Lights for Daily Life

Evening Prayer

Lord, turn us to toward You — not to comparing our day to anyone else’s day. Help us to drop all our measuring sticks. Because if we walk through life with a measuring stick – our eyes get so small we never see You, God, at all. Measuring sticks always become weapons. Weapons of Self-Harm. And scales have a tendency to lie. They don’t make a scale that ever told the truth about value, about worth, about significance. And all mine tonight is solely in You, Lord. Everything isn’t a marker to make me feel behind or ahead. Everything is a flame to make see that You, GOD are here. Tonight, we’re breaking all our measuring sticks — so we can rest in Your measurement of us in Christ: perfectly loved. In Jesus’ Name… Amen.
