I can’t promise you
that where you go will
that there will be a comfortable
chair, kind people, or a system
what I can promise, because
it has already been promised, the promise
not being mine but the Father’s
is that where you go the Kingdom
of God will be – this is the strange mystery
of the indwelling
that heaven is in the everyday present,
and we are all invited to be a part.
Scripture says,” Lead
me to the rock that is higher
than I am.”
Be it so.
Do not allow my
own tethers and the prison
of my own design to capture
I am no creature to be netted,
preferring the role of the eagle.
