Emmanuel

Posted in Advent, prayers i made up tagged , , , at 5:00 am by arthur

Jesus sees
the person on the edge of the crowd
the stooped over
the hurting
the distracted
the lowly
the poor
the unimportant
the lonely
the outcast

And yet, we try so hard
to be noticed
to be worthy
to be impressive
to get his attention.
I want him to see me!

And in my striving I forget that He already has,
He already does.
And what’s more,
he comes to us…. to us.

Emmanuel – God with us.
God for all of us.
Amen.
