Others’ Faith in Us

IMG_4855

Others’ faith in us,
when we have none of our own,
can one day help awaken
our faith in a larger Presence
flowing everywhere
and through everyone,
frothing with desire
to cleanse us all
with the healing waters
of boundless Love.

To My Repeated Questioning

To my repeated questioning,
again and again,
the Spirit replied:
cultivate faith, be available,
and surrender into Life
right where you are,
and you will find
the Truth for which you long.

Saving Grace

To all who, like me, slowly
and with unconscious stealth,
maneuver to take back control
after they have experienced
God’s saving grace,
do not be so foolish
as to think you will ever be
without the need for that grace.
