GOD I CALL TO YOU (by Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

I read this today in my quiet time, out of I Want to Live These Days With You, a devotional by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

God, I call to you in the early morning;
help me pray and gather my thoughts;
I cannot do it alone.

In me it is dark, but with you there is light.
I am lonely, but you do not leave me.
I am faint-hearted, but with you there is help.
I am restless, but with you there is peace.
In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience.
I do not understand your ways,
but you know the right way for me.

Father in heaven,
Praise and thanks be to you for the rest of the night.
Praise and thans be to you for the new day.
Praise and thanks be to you for all your love and faithfulness in my past life.
You have shown me many good things;
let me now also accept hard things from your hand.
You will not place on me more than I can bear.
You make all things serve your children for the best.

-Dietrich Bonhoeffer
