God is all

In seething, blood-red darkness,
At the heart of silent prayer,
No sense of self remains,
And God is all.

Part of you

How frail is humanity! How short life is! (Job 14:1; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

*****************************

My body, mind and heart
Belong to you, Lord –

Though clearly they are fragile,
Mortal, finite.

Yet my soul belongs to you
For evermore, Lord –

For it’s a holy and immortal
Part of you.

For all these
Mortal things
Will disappear.

Instead,
I’m a unique
Immortal soul –

Always
And forever
Part of you.

There’s no such thing

Lord God,
There’s no such thing
As an outsider –

A stranger,
Or a foreigner,
Or foe –

There’s only you,
Within us all,
Without exception,

Waiting
To be welcomed
In our hearts.
