Senior Partner

The Lord God said, “It isn’t good for the man to live alone. I need to make a suitable partner for him.” ~ Genesis 2.:18 (CEV)

Simeon took the baby Jesus in his arms and praised God,
Lord, I am your servant, and now I can die in peace, because you have kept your promise to me. With my own eyes I have seen what you have done to save your people...
~ Luke 2:28-30 (CEV) 

Gods doesn't leave us alone without necessary partners.
Lord, you are a very relational being. You understand better than anyone how important it is to be in dynamic partnerships. You model healthy relationships in the Holy Trinity. And then through Christ you invite us participate in that partnership. Thank you for including me even though I don't value the partnership as much as I should. It feels so easy to try and do it all on my own. Thank you for not leaving me alone. I'm going to look to you as my most senior partner. Amen.
