All in the Mystery of God

SeekingPsalm 42:1-2     1 Just like a deer that craves streams of water, my whole being craves you, God. My whole being thirsts for God, for the living God. (CEB)

Search, pursue,
hunt, explore…
seeking, I am found.

Fluent, eloquent,
verbal, persuasive…
speaking, I am immersed in silence.

Flee, retreat,
dodge, depart…
fleeing, I am returned home.

Sometimes God speaks
in the silence of an inner voice
that insists, invites, nudges, calls.
Sometimes I whisper a word
in response to that inner voice.

At other times
after a manifestation of thoughts
God (while remaining anonymous)
speaks a word through another person.
Sometimes, I utter a word from God
in response to another’s manifestation of thoughts.

At all times, God speaks through love.
Sometimes, I even murmur a word of love.
