Thought for the Season
One Day at a Time

Lisa O. Engelhardt

One day's crosses
and one day's tasks –
I try to shoulder these, Lord,
for that is all You ask.

Day by day, I pray that I
may hear You and then heed
Your whisper in my soul
to find the strength I need.

At every moment, may I seize
the "present" of this day.
Let me not regret the past
or worry today away.

A trial, I know, may simply be
a blessing in disguise,
so help me look for miracles
right before my eyes.

Time will tell the pattern
which You weave with love divine.
Grant that I may help create
Your grand and glorious design.
