Lord, make me a bridge. Bridges get walked on – that is their sole purpose. Let people walk on me, walk across me to get to You. And Lord, forgive me for those times when I’m a barrier instead of a bridge, for those times when I keep people from You and block their view of You, instead of providing safe passage, providing a connection over whatever chasms separate people from Your love for them.
What joy to be a bridge used for Your good purposes! I could want nothing more than this highest of lowly callings – to lay down rather than to stand up tall and unmovable. Yes, please Lord, let me be a bridge again today. Let me be Your bridge, a bridge for You, a bridge to You. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen!
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:19)
