it is enough
The lack of problem-solving skills definitely dazzles me just a little
This mountain from a molehill made larger than life
It makes me wonder about the state of this ordinary world
How would we survive a zombie apocalypse?
Not very well, it would seem
Old men rely on fixed routine to the exclusion of common sense
Thank goodness God adores us as we are
Weak and foolish, as we may be
Thank goodness I wallow in this deep puddle of grace
The long shadow of this swirling forgiveness
The abundance of this day’s beauty
The glimpsed knowledge of the irony of freewill
The glory of the sunlight after the greyest day
that God intends to upend the empires of men,
promises cosmic upheaval,
and to bring it about sends
lonely prophets out in the wilderness,
who themselves will soon be arrested.
God touches a loner praying in the desert.
Kneels and says to a peasant girl,
“Your willingness is enough.”
Appears in a small, helpless child.
Holds the sagging flesh of one crucified.
Amazing, how for God so little is enough.
The voice of one crying in the wilderness
Your voice is enough
if you lift it up.
It is not alone.
It is not empty.
and its millions,
is the Way of God.
It is noted somewhere in the book of eternity, that human beings who risk it all and step forward day in and day out…are indeed creating, the most beautiful days of their lives…I know, as it happened again today…falling madly in love with the world.
