I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. - Psalm 9:1 (NRSV)
Returning to work after five weeks of being in isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic had me grumbling and complaining. The thought of having to wake up early each morning, drive to work, and spend eight hours a day at my desk was making me feel disgruntled and irritated.
What a difference gratitude to God can make!

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
