" Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are 'patches of godlight' in the woods of our experience."

Giving Up

Giving up is never the answer,
Yet my heart and mind clamour 
for that escape. 

Why bother?
they say.
Why even try?
You've failed many times before.
This time will be the same.

How can they betray me in such a way?
How inconsistent are they -
Desiring change,
Yet also desiring apathy.

This inconsistency drags me down.
Why was I made this way?
Why can't I change?

It is then that I turn to the only consistent voice -
still and small.
He calls to me,
just try!
You can do it with me by your side.
Just try!

Fill Me

Fill me with Your love.
Let me see You in the faces
Of the poor, unwanted and outcast
That they in return
May see Your face in me.

Fill me with Your blessings.
Not so that I may have 
All I desire and want,
But that I may pass blessings 
On to those in need.

Fill me with Your mercy.
Help me offer forgiveness
To my enemies
Just as You have forgiven me.

Fill me with Your patience.
So when others fail,
I may show them grace
As You do for me 
In all my failures.

Fill me with Your Spirit,
So I may know
I am not alone.
 Help me to find You
in all life's monotony.
