Presence with Power

January 9, 2014

 

He’s a very present help

The One who is there for you

One who’s there in the crisis

Calms the human soul

~ 

What does it mean to be there
Listening to the human heart
Engaging the mind fully
Present with the soul
 ~
Transforming presence
Those who have experienced
The power of love
Know the mystery of life
Who meets us in the despair
 ~
No one can escape
The reality of death
There’s a living death
That we all know is so real
No one escapes either one
 ~
Relationship death
Is familiar to us all
It’s the landscape of our souls
It leaves us alone
With no one to understand
That is where I met my God
 ~
Then there’s the physical death
Coming sooner than later
All the noise tries to hide it
I am not afraid
 ~
Be still and listen
The Psalmist will take you there
The Hebrew Scriptures
Tells me how to process death
And find the living Presence
 ~
Don’t judge by appearances
What’s on the inside counts most
Good conversation helps with
Honest reflection
 ~
Faith is not easy
It requires all faculties
The head, heart and gut
Engaged in real dialogue
With honest thinking people
