A Blessing

You are blessed,
For God himself is seeking your soul.

You are blessed,    
Because the God who made you loves you, more than you can ever know.

You are blessed,    
When you touch another life and connect because of your suffering.

You are blessed,
When you learn to laugh at yourself and not others,
As you make friends with a stranger,
As you individually and corporately seek to help.

You are blessed,
As you cry out against injustice,
And as you are taken into the warm embrace of God.

Be found,
Be loved,
Be welcomed,
Be blessed.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit   
Amen
