"Humility" Isaiah 40
O God, may the echoes of laughter follow me today. Speak to me in playfulness. Open my senses to the liberation that you bring simply because you are above all and in all and through all. And I am a grasshopper - bouncing along thinking that the world starts and stops with me. Assuming that my decisions have the strength to press pause and play in the grand scheme of things.
I hope you laugh out loud - in love, of course. Teach me to bow down. Unwrap for me the gift of humility. Place me in the balance of responsibility and release. For you are the Holy One. The earth laughs at our predictions - not to be mean - but to remind us of our inability to fully understand and to stop acting like we do. Smile at your world today, God. Smile at us and show us the liberating fullness of your laughter. Amen.
