What now?

John 21:18

Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.

What now?

I know in my very soul
that Jesus has turned
my denial of him
into an amazing gift.

I'm not worthy of his gift
and yet
my heart is set free,
my soul is revived.

He is alive!

"Feed my lambs...
Take care of my sheep...
Feed my sheep"

I'm a fisherman
Not a shepherd.

I don't know how to make the change.

Elation fills my being
as I consider this new task.
But, at the same time,
fear tugs at my gut.

I'm still so fallible.


Lord,
when we are faced with changes
which both excite us
and scare us,
hold us gently
in your care.

New jobs,
new situations,
new things to learn.
Empower us
by your Spirit.

When we are lost,
be our comforter.
When we are given responsibility,
be our guide.

Our Lord and Saviour.
Amen
