Perhaps for Today

Perhaps for today
I could believe
that all of the good that I need
I will receive,

that I will find
whatever grace
it takes to face
whatever trials take place,

that the love I crave
I will find
by giving it away
to the lost or lonely,

that the kindness
that binds up the broken
and heals the hurting
will find its beginning within me,

that the faith
that moves mountains
will break the stones
inside my heart,

that I will do my part
to be a blessing
to the least of these
who are also made in the image of God,

who also crave
good,
grace,
love,
kindness,
faith.

Perhaps for today
I could treat others
as I would have them
treat me.
