Reflections ... Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy

Sixty-seven

 

God, you ask me to be a servant

to do something special for you

something no-one else can do

and even though – a lot of the time —

I seem to have no idea what I’m about

no doubt I’ll understand in the end

 

I’m like a link in a chain

one strand in this ancient cord of humanity

you haven’t created me for nothing

everything you make is good

and I’ll be good too

I’ll do what you want me to do

like one of your angels, I’ll weave peace

I’ll talk about you here and there

I can’t seem to help it

 

I trust in your love, Lord

you’ll never give up on me

though I’m sick or confused

my weakness and questions belong to you

you’re with me in my aloneness

even if my friends leave me

and my future plans come to nothing

you know what you’re doing

you know where I am

my life will not be wasted.
