Wednesday Riff: Gracious and Compassionate

The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
At times we get the picture wrong Lord, we don’t see you clearly,
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
At times we fear that you are looking to punish us,
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
At times we want to turn our backs and run from you,
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
At times we forget that we can bring every part of our lives to you,
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
At times we think we can make it on our own, without your help,
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
At times we ignore you, instead of talking to you about our problems and fears,
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
Help us Lord, to remember this through the coming week,
Amen
