Jesus' Mercy Changes Me, We and the World

We’re Listening God

Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you.
           …give to God what is God’s.
                                 —Matthew 22.21
Loving One,
I confess: all day long,
and even in my quiet morning prayer,
I am obsessed with myself: 
what I have to do:
roles to play, tasks to accomplish, 
the way I “ought” to be.

Instead I surrender to you all thought of myself,
and gaze on what you are doing in me.

I am not the Movie of Myself.
I am the hushed theater where you appear.
May I clear the stage
for you to tell your story,
and hold the silence in which you sing.

Deep Blessings,
Steve Garnaas-Holmes
