And what might come;

In stillness,
Waiting patiently for you,
For we are one.

In contemplation
Reflecting on the past
And what might come;

Instead, I want to spend my time
In silence,
Listening for your voice,
For we are one.

I don’t want to spend my time
In contemplation,
Fretting about the past
And what might come;

Instead, I want to spend it
In the present,
Dwelling in your love,
For we are one.

I don’t want to spend my time
In contemplation
Brooding on the past
And what might come;

Instead, I want to spend it
In your arms, Lord,
Dancing for joy with you,
For we are one.

You are a light

I am the light of the world (John 8:12; NLT).

She […] laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn (Luke 2:7; NLT).

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Mark 15:34; NLT).

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

Lord,

You are a light,
A dove in flight,
A crown of gold;

A squalid byre,
A tongue of fire,
A love untold;

A still, small voice,
A daily choice,
A healing breath;

A cry of pain,
A Saviour slain,
A bitter death.
