No One Can Fathom

July 6, 2013

 -

History tells us

The things that we need to know

Am I listening

 -

The wars, the innocent lives

The raw human suffering

With fear and trembling

But with confidence and hope

I will go with you leading

I will enter the soul wound

Having been wounded and scarred

Broken by ill-equipped ones

Loved in the middle

 -

I’ll not lead with piety

I enter as a wounded soul

Aware of my own sorrows

Meeting in the pain

 -

In my darkest grief

Losses inexpressible

The darkest room in my heart

A gentle light came

A pinhole of light to give hope

There was joy to be found

 -

The God I know forgives me

He came to me in darkness

Showed me what a child is worth

Opened me to love

 –

Every soul I meet

Help me never to label

Or eliminate

Each person has a story

Each one is beloved by God

 -

I’ll not live in fear

I will go with the light of love

With courage to act

With the power of presence

Staying close with compassion

 -

I’ll be wise as a serpent

Gentle dove as my model

Courageous as a lion

Move forward ln light

 -

The wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace will be our guide.  With the Spirit of sonship we will go where we are led.  His promises held high we go forward to meet the prisoners with a message of healing, hope and forgiveness.  As Moses led the way for the slaves in Egypt,  Jesus calls us to join him in bringing the light of life to those trapped in darkness.
