Eating the Bread of Anxious Toil by Raymond A. Foss

Words of the psalmist, a prayer for peace
so easy to eat the bread of anxious toil
our lives judged by human goals
standards of success, frenzied days
living trying to measure up
as if we could earn salvation
that life would be scored and balanced
God’s love, so much more,
his sacrifice for me so awesome
I am so blessed, if I believe,
share the sleep of the beloved
typing these lines with less care
giving up control, letting down that load
letting God guide my hands
letting his words come through
sharing peace in this message

August 31, 2008
Psalm 127:1-2,
Call to Worship
Suncook United Methodist Church
