Holding on to faith

This meditation from Cheryl at hold this space reflects my mood today. I am still coughing and the doctor has signed me off for another week – bah! This has a strange start to Lent – I haven’t led worship for three weeks now. It feels like I have lost all my usual markers – the desert is very dry!

The promise echoes through history
whispered by angels and shouted by prophets
But did they know how dry this desert could be?

How do we hold faith
when the cracks in our reality are deeper than ever before
when the pressures add up relentlessly.

You are making all things new?
We are trying to hold faith.

We need a glimpse, God
a moment
something to carry us beyond what we know

So we pray
with no faith
and with all faith

give us eyes to see
faith to believe
courage to live
today.
