Advent, Day 21: The True.

Today’s reading: 1 John 5:20

God,

you came to give the gift of
understanding

help me to understand
what I need to understand
(and let go
the things I never will)

you came to give the gift of
knowledge

help me to know
who you are
and who I am in you

you came to give the gift of
truth

help me to set down the shackles
of the deceptions I choose
and to rejoice
in the freedom of
your faithfulness

you came to give the gift of
eternity

help me to
begin living it
now

amen.
