Gentle Me

Posted in Divine Dialogues

Gentle Me

Lord, gentle me as I awaken the dawn this day. Let my words be a cleansing shower to wash the soul. Springtime is coming and the icy grip of winter seems at last to have loosed its hold upon us. Today will be a day of hothouse flowers, and we will travel again to cherish with others the hope that your creation provides.   The poet’s spirit in me is glad, and I pray for sunshine to light our path at each moment. Let us both, my wife and I find delight and encouragement in the wonder of your created things.   Gentle me, and gentle us all Let peace be ours. This is your day, your day of rest. ************   My child, I hear your every word, and your thoughts are not hidden from me. I delight in moments with you, in your prayer My spirit will be with you as you take this day, as my Spirit is with you each day. I am pleased to hear your voice. I delight to see your intention. There is much for you to know, and to learn of me, and you will learn. Hear me today in the quiet birdsong. Hear me in the quiet words of your companions close upon your path. See me in the play of light upon the petals, and in the smiles that play across the faces of others that join you. Know me in the patience that inhabits your own soul. Allow me fully to live in you, and I will live. Let these moments be your best. Let this day be your best day, and allow my hand to guide. There will be sunlight and birdsong, the harbingers of spring, and your heart will be open to the song of the Spirit from me. Let the barriers break down, and your freedom appear. Drink deep from the fountain of heavenly waters that your refreshing may last to the end of days, and join us at heaven’s gate each moment as you turn your thoughts here. Drink deep and be refreshed as all the angels and saints gather as one within your heart to share in the rejoicing of heaven.      ...
