Desert Diaries 6

Sitting, being in a place
Desert, forest, mountain, beach
Becoming aware, more fully aware
Of being
Of being at one with that place

Then looking ahead
And seeing the cross
Sensing the invitation
Daring to say
Lord, address it to me
At Thy word, I will come.


The heavens are telling…

I gaze at the sky and see
Aeroplane trails
Making a cross
Just like this picture
I expect the heavens to tell me
The glory of God
But instead they tell of what?
Humility, vulnerability, weakness
Humanity, compassion
Lord, teach my heart to know there is more to your glory
Than superficial splendour
