Now What?

The Search and Rescue 

  • You’ve taken me over some mighty steep steep hills
  • Where I have felt in my bones the principalities’ chills

 

  • You’ve taken me through deep deep valleys 
  • Where I thought surely my life would have its finale

 

  • You’ve taken me far far into the thick dark forest of the unknown 
  • Where You and only You The Way out to me have shown

 

  • You’ve led me through the night’s bitter and trying blackness
  • Where I doubted I would ever reemerge from the sadness

 

  • You’ve taken me out of the confining cage
  • Where had I stayed I would have been consumed by rage

 

  • You’ve taken me into foreign and strange territory 
  • Where complete reliance on You has been and is my only humble glory 

 

The Victories 

  • You’ve taken me to a place at Your Holy Table 
  • Where my Heart wept at the immense joy of being so privileged and able 

 

  • You’ve taken me to a place where trumpets proclaim Your Holy Word
  • Where never in my life I had dreamed my love for You in my voice would be heard

 

  • You’ve taken me to some beautiful spiritual highs 
  • From where I did not want to come down as You gently and lovingly 
  • reappraised and realigned the outlook of my eyes/i’s

 

  • You’ve asked me to deliver some challenging messages 
  • Where my knees trembled and voice quivered when facing the professionals

 

  • You’ve taken me into the trenches of the vulnerable 
  • Where tears were shed for those who for so long have been spiritually uncomfortable

 

  • And You did this all so perfectly, subtly and miraculously
  • Where Your Omniscience, Omnipresence, and Omnipotence was utterly spectacular 

 

The Fruit 

  • You’ve taken me down a path of Peace, Joy, and Liberty
  • Where by Your Grace I have discovered the Gift of this Divine Earthly trinity

 

  • You have shown me Your Love and Mercy 
  • Where my guilt dissolved and I once again felt worthy 

 

  • You’ve shown me that I could do more than I have ever dared or dreamed 
  • Where you have rebuilt with Grace my being and dignity 

 

  • You have parted the seas on more than one occasion
  • Where in my amazement I reveled in Your mighty formation 

 

  • You have led me gingerly through traps and snares 
  • Whereby my safe passage was ensured by Your loving care

 

The Reprimands and Requests

  • You have also shown me Your wrath
  • Whereby my ego was humbled in an instant by a humble bubble bath

 

  • You then Christened me with Your Holy Name 
  • So that I may begin again without shame 

 

  • You’ve always asked me this one thing and one thing alone
  • That in You I trust as I leave my childhood home

 

  • You’ve asked me more than once to leave it all behind 
  • Even though it tore my Heart and left me temporarily in decline 

 

  • I obeyed because I knew that You would once again provide 
  • I trusted in the eternal Wisdom of Your Divine Design 

 

  • But always your Grace, Your Abundant Grace completely surrounded me 
  • And I never felt alone for it was me and Thee

 

The Support 

  • You always provided timely messengers along The Way
  • So that I did not wander off into the hands of thirsty prey 

 

  • You always reinforced my at times fleeting and flailing Spirit
  • At just the right moment, Your Love paid me an extended visit

 

  • You asked that I always be open, honest and vulnerable 
  • In doing so, sometimes before others I have been most uncomfortable 

 

  • You have confounded me beyond belief 
  • Where my logic had no choice but to be succinct and brief

 

  • Many a times Your Divine Directives had me completely confused 
  • The only way I could discern was in silence, meditation and solitude 

 

Now What?

  • And now, I wonder , “Now What?”
  • What else have You in store for me in Your Divine Trust

 

  • What else could You possibly have on the horizon
  • As usual,  this I will discover in time and still silence 

 

  • Whenever I’ve asked about the “whys” of a situation,
  • Your Spirit simply replied with, “Where were you when I AM laid the earth’s foundation?” 
  • and 
  • “Just please have patience.
  • For I AM never unavailable or on vacation.”

 

Now This…

  • And now this…
  • All I gotta say is You’ve taken my life off of the chart 
  • Where total reliance on You is a total must

 

  • i am your daughter 
  • And You, my Divine Mother•Father

 

  • So take my emotions and my heart
  • In You I always want to be a part

 

  • So take my Spirit and my Soul 
  • To You I always relinquish full control

 

  • So take my mind and ego 
  • Your Way is my new credo

 

  • So take my dreams and visions 
  • And let’s get on with the Divine Mission

 

  • So take my strength and energy 
  • Let us create the ideal Divine•Earth synergy 

 

  • So let us walk Hand in hand
  • With You leading my life as Divinely planned
  • Amen

 

  • There.
  • Life all figured out. 
  • Simple. 
  • Delegate it to God!
