A Gift

Brokenness – a gift
When you know you need help
Do not be afraid to ask
Accept the counsel
From those who have learned to live well
Examine the way they think
~
It’s never too late to seek
Renewal and hope will lead
You can begin now
There is a fresh way to see
Joy is on the horizon
~
The counsel will come
There is a clear voice calling
For everyone
The voice in the wilderness
Lift your head and behold love
~
Solitude draws me
Alone I listen to words
Of one who understands
I receive language
That express deepest feelings
Words of encouragement come
~~
There is someone who delights
In being in your presence
Who longs for you to know love
“Seek and you will find”

    I love this meditation! I have been so blessed to have received wise counsel over the years from dear friends who have walked long with our Father. There is such a sweet intimacy that accompanies confession and the request for help. It is only Satan who tries to send us into hiding; he delights in isolating us from one another.
