Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.
O Love, you believe so surely in me! You hear my soul, my silences. When I have been hemmed in, you have set me free. Hold me in your smiling gaze and hear, what I haven't spoken even to myself.
How long will I lose myself in other people's lies and delusions? Holy One, I trust that you gather all to yourself; gather me now, gently.
When troubles disturb the pond's surface, the depths need not stir. I will not find peace or truth in worry but in silence. Love, I trust in you; Holy One, I offer myself to you.
Some clamor for obvious signs, for God's face to look like their wishes. But it couldn't be any clearer: your joy that blossoms in my heart is more real than all their successes. Your face is my sun.
I can relax. I can even lie down. I can close my eyes in peace and sleep. O Devoted Presence, you alone let me release myself into you.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
