Here I Am

Should have taken You at Your Word
Hear and dare
Now and then
There were things by design and plan
planted routes, planned steps…
that seemed casually coincidentally taken or overheard
Only to be ignored
brushed aside
pebbles kicked up by the tumultuous stampeding fearful
that shook the ground
and a pebble on a shoulder was of no great concern at the time
how could I have known,
that one day those pebbles
would accumulate to become boulders?
I didn’t want to believe
railed against what was beginning in me
but You left no more room for doubt
You squeezed and squeezed
till on bended knee
thankfully, it was all wrung out
You made it very clear
Something new…
arising within
Something old…
It still brings me to tears even now
after the passage of so many years
to speak this way with You so at ease
No one but You can see where i’m hidden away
Though heart, hand and pen betray my privacy
And if anyone is listening…
reading, following along this trail of moist mystery
streaming down a page like a clue
This is how I’ve learned to speak with Jesus
These thoughts could be prayers…
Don’t know?
Can’t say?
All I can be certain of is this:
Right “here”
Right “Now”
Is simply where i shed all “self”
To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”
– Thomas Aquinas
God Bless

One thought on “Here I Am

  1. Moist mystery. Nice image. And the conversational tone of it all is REAL and reverent. God enjoys a chat more than speeches. (Doug)
    This one is really helpful AG…but maybe you thought you were just explaining yourself.
