Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Be silent before the Lord, all humanity (Zechariah 2:13; NIV).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

Bring your offering and come into his presence (1 Chronicles 16:29; NLT).

As I prepare
For contemplation,
I sometimes ask myself
How it can possibly work –

This way of seeking you
By being still,
Sitting in silence,
And waiting patiently?

Yet, almost every time,
It brings me to your light,
Your love, and your presence –
So I guess it works just fine!
