Eye of the needle

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    It is easier          for a camel          to go through          the eye of a needle          than for someone          who is rich          to enter          the realm of God.                   —Mark 10.25

What do I cling to that burdens me, that keeps me from you?

What emptiness do I fear that you can't fill?

What baggage do I carry that keeps me from loving perfectly, giving wholly?

What would I not give away to find you in my empty hands?

               •

         Get the          lead out          and the gold.          I will go          light,          burden          poor.          Spin me          fine          silk          of grace.          Draw me          thread-          bare          through          the needle          of your          eye into          the world          of your          heart.

         That old          camel          will be          so much          happier          out in the          wide          desert.

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
