Humility

#443 This week I’ve been working on a #resource for #contemplativeprayer. I’ve also been incredibly humbled by events of the last few days. This #poem came out of those two aspects of my week:

#Humility
Oblivion is easy, simple, peaceful even;
But is it real, everlasting peace?
That which flows from God,
The source of all-being and light.
Oblivion is easy, yet life without thee…
Well that is nothing.

Prayer is comfort, relationship, stillness;
Also on occasion arid, lacking.
That which flows from God,
Is never in want, only we fall short.
Humility, not pride, opens our eyes…
To the God of grace and peace.
