Remind Us

You so often disrupt us
from our plans
from our hopes
from our desires
we forget you are on our side

You so often surprise us
with your words
with your judgments
with your faithfulness
we are not quite sure how to respond

You so often frustrate us
with your mystery
with your indifference
with your absence
we fear that you are no God at all

But you also often remind us:
“I will be their God and they will be my people”
You are on our side
“Follow me”
We know how to respond
“I am with you”
And we know that you are here.

We give you thanks
for your disruptions
for your surprises
even for your frustrations
but mostly for your reminders

Remind us, again and again if necessary
We will try to remember

Amen.
