Spend time alone

Spend time alone
To seek God’s holy presence;

Be silent   
As you listen for his voice.  

With eyes closed
You may see his dazzling glory;

And in stillness
You may join his sacred dance.

We can’t give hope

We can’t give hope to others
When we have none of our own.

We can’t love other people
When we hate to be alone.

We can’t guide other people
When we do not know the way,

Nor help them find their heaven
When we live in hell each day.
