Psalm 41-Reaching Out in Love

Blessed are those who reach out to others in love
   who give generously to those in need.
God smiles on them and sustains them
in their times of trouble.
I realize—I pray- Oh God, I have done some of that,
   but not enough.
But you have sustained me in my troubles anyway—
  when I was sick and afraid
  when I was overwhelmed by problems
  when the people I cared for turned against me—
You helped me out of that mess.
Your invisible hand guided me.
And now—another chance to reach out to others in love.
   to give generously to hose in need.
When trouble comes again, I will have your support.
Blessed Be.
