LETTERS OF ENCOURAGEMENT- In the Spirit

13.8.93

Lord,
I’m not very patient.
I want to know
and experience
every aspect of You
all at once.

Eagerly…
thirstily…
after years of
dehydration…
just gulping down
large mouthfuls
of Your Spirit!

It is hard to imagine
that I would ever
feel satisfied…
and put down
Your Cup.

I just want
MORE of You…
like an endless
stream flowing…
into a river
flowing…
into the sea.
Like the constant
procession of waves
washing…
against the shore.

You seem to
be CONTINUOUS…
never-ending.
Maybe
this is why
we can believe
You are really
Everlasting…
and Life,
and Love
with You
will be
Eternal.


15.8.93

Lord,
where do I fit in
Your “Big Picture”?
Any idea or concept of You
is so vast, so immensely great…
and I am so small,
such a tiny, minuscule piece,
like a dab of paint
on Your Masterpiece.

But Your Masterpiece
keeps changing…
it never looks the same,
because You gave us
free will…
choices…
so we become a
living work of art…
and the Picture
changes colour and composition
as we rearrange our pieces everyday,
with every new choice we make.

I look at me…
at any concept of my World
and it seems so unimportant.
I wonder what I really value anymore.
On a material level…
a place to live,
a bed on which to sleep,
and food to eat.
A basic human existence.

I feel so much like
I am at the very Beginning –
of my Understanding of You,
of my Understanding of my Life,
and how the two really fit together.
And from there,
how my Life should interact
with other Lives.

I think I have to learn
that I have to be patient…
that I have to live everyday…
to take it as it comes,
and to trust You to show me
the true course of my life.

And Your Masterpiece
will keep continually evolving…
as it has from the very beginning.
