Monday Morning

Lord and God,
'Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,' I read. I am not sure what it means to fear you. I stand in awe of your majesty and might. I wonder at your power and creativity. But I do not know how to fear you. Perhaps I am not humble enough. Perhaps my faith is lacking some critical element, but I love you so deeply I want to be held by you every day of my life. I want you to dwell within me and before me, so that my steps may be covered by you. Open my mind and my heart, so that my service might be directed to you. Convert my life, so that I might worship you. May all I do be an humble offering to you, so that I might find my way to the beginning of wisdom.
