Generosity in quotes: Sue Park Hur

There is so much to do, so much work undone,

emails unreplied, thank-you notes unwritten,

phone bills unpaid and flights unreserved,

visits unconfirmed, dinners and sermons unprepared;

I am overwhelmed and it’s only January.

 

Lord, when I get anxious about the big and the trivial,

your spirit nudges me, gently reminding me to be at rest;

you are the Alpha and Omega, the finisher of our faith

who has done, replied, written, paid, and prepared everything;

what tremendous grace realized and it’s only January.
