Dear Shadow

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.


He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan. —Mark 1.13


You who shadow me you are the part of me that is afraid to be me

the part who does not believe in who I am or trust that it is enough

Anxious One, always needing needing to prove needing to possess

I will hear you for I cannot silence you But I will not obey

I will sit with you, still I will learn to walk through you like a shadow

For I too have my secrets hidden in plain sight: I am not alone

Spirit fills me Christ accompanies me You have no power

I Am this is sufficient and God’s doing, not yours or mine

Dear Shadow, poor thing come sit with me and be at peace.


Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
