2015.05.01: you know the way

“Where I am going you know the way.” – Jn 14:4


you were born
knowing the way
but you listened
to the world
and doubted
yourself
and lost the way

stop

breath in
breath out

in the stillness
where you are
there I AM

be still
and know
that I AM
the way

be still
and know
that you are
created
in my image

be still
and know
that you were born
knowing the way

be still
and know the way
starts with you
right here
right now
just as you are

be still
you know the way

be

2015.03.12: listen and follow

This rather is what I commanded them: Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people. Walk exactly in the way I command you, so that you may prosper. – Jer 7:23

down this road
through the fog
i hear your voice

leading the Way
showing the Truth
giving the Life

you are my shepherd
i am your lamb
i will follow

2015.02.26: all that is

For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds;
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Mt 7:8

all that is given leads to more wanting
all that is found leads to more seeking
all that is opened leads to more doors

which gift leads to the truth?
which answer leads to the way?
which door leads to the life?

am i doomed to constant longing?
am i destined to endless searching?
will i always face a hall of doors?

“be still
be still and know
be still and know that i am
be still and know that i am God”

is that knocking that i hear?

2015.02.08: standard of the cross

Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed. Mk 1:35

you could have stayed and revelled in the fame
you could have stayed and made your family happy
it would have been easy to turn rock into food
it would have been easy to fly from the parapet
it would have been easy to become ruler of the world

instead
you came to meet me in my deserted place
you came to teach me to pray
you came to be the way to our Father
you came to carry the cross and die for me
you came so that i could have abundant life

all i can do is say thank you and yes
i will pick up my cross and follow your standard
remain with me always, Lord
