Psalm 130:1-2 1 I cry out to you from the depths, Lord— 2 my Lord, listen to my voice! Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy! (CEB)

My whole being is alive,
waiting for an unheard inner insistence,
a call in the name ofGod.
That insistence is not about
how good or how bad I am,
how good or how bad you are.
It is about what you and I can become.
It lies in wait for every one of us.
But I have to be ready to discern it,
watchful in anticipation.
Otherwise, I may not hear…
as if my receiver is turned off.
What I don’t always grasp
is that I may think I am ready…
I may want to be available…
I may mis-read my availability.
Still, I wait with eager anticipation.
I want to be a fruitful breeding ground,
incubating insistence and call
until I am ready to bring forth new life
that is a response that follows
in the Way of Yeshua,
the Commonwealth of Peace and Justice.
Therein is my hope,
and my redemption.
