Prayer on a theme of Acceptance



Creator God
on windswept beaches
your saints of old
held their hands up to you
in wonder and amazement
felt your power through the roar
of wind and surf and
exposed to the elements
felt a oneness
with the One
who had created all things.
This world does not often allow us
such intimacy with you, Father
we are crowded out
by circumstances of our own choosing
seeking fellowship with each other
rather than with you.
Forgive our unwillingness
to follow in the footsteps of your saints
to meet you in the solitude of your creation
Forgive our unwillingness
to get our feet wet


_______________________________


Your light is the only light I need
as I travel through life's mystery
Your word the only voice I hear
that still small voice that leads me
to the place where I should be
Your presence is the only company I need
as I walk this narrow road
Your fellowship the warmth I crave
to help me on my way


___________________________________


In the beginning, Lord I was alone
Like the earth, before your Spirit
moved over the waters.
I was formless and empty
and darkness filled the depths of my heart.
Then, it was as if you declared
'Let there be Light'
and out of the darkness
I began to see hope
like a shimmering ray of love
breaking through the parting clouds
at the conclusion of the night.
In the beginning, Lord I was alone
but when I saw you in the light
I was no longer afraid.
You held out your hand
and though I had a choice
I had no choice
because to refuse
was to embrace again the darkness.
In the beginning, Lord I was alone
Now I feel a part of your creation
loved, wanted, needed, family.
In the light of your presence
I hold out my heart that others
might glimpse your reflection through it
and be drawn from the darkness
that I once embraced
into the light of your sunrise
the brightness of your face

Can we really
move mountains
with a mustard seed of faith?
It seems rather a difficult task.
Could we maybe start
with a molehill
and work our way up gradually?
But thatís not the way it works, is it, Lord?
So often you challenge us
with the mountain
when we feel so unprepared
unequipped for the task.
Itís then that we have to put self aside
and fear
and pride
and cling tightly to your hand.
It is only then that we really feel
the warmth of your touch
the certainty of your love
the power of your presence.
It is only then
that our faith begins to grow
and we begin to see
our real potential.
Thank your, Heavenly Father
for mountains
and mustard seeds

yep Exquisitely lovely, Naomi. There is nothing left unsaid in this dissertation of Spirit. Surrendering to God and realizing it is His will, not ours that keeps the Cosmos in order; we are part and parcel of His cosmic dream, and ought act our roles in this play.
Spreading His love is incumbent upon each of us if we are to return to His arms, extended in love, realized by those, who in turn, are deeply aware of His Truth.
Thank you, Naomi. God bless you...........Jon
