all that is divine,
it's height, it's depth,
it's weight, it's width,
all that it ever was,
or is, or ever will be
can be summed up
in one word;
this word,
clothed within a man's dying flesh,
continues to be humanity's
greatest wonder,
history's pivot point.
that refuses to blame,
or justify,
that forsakes all that
divinity would endow.

may I be found
in a peaceful place,
my soul content,
my heart far from fear.
May my prayers be
an honest cry,
not full of pretence
or pride
and my mind
be clear
not distorted
or vain.

Just another thought.
So much of our spirituality and church life is centred on 'our' ministry, all that 'we' do for God.

We sing and pray about our love for God and our worship of him.
The foundation of our faith is not the things that we do.
It is entirely about the things that He has done.
There is nothing notable about our love for God,
however His love for us is absolutely miraculous.
Somehow in the midst of our songs
we forget the image of Jesus kneeling at out dusty feet with a bowl and a towel.
Just another thought.

thursday's prayer.

Let me cease the struggling that lies
at the centre of spiritual achievement.
Help me to cease spiritual measurement,
striving and work. Let me rest in receiving,
unmerited and unearned,
unconditional and free.
Let me search for that Love
that is searching for me.
