Wrinkles

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         
         

When you meet a challenge,
a time of change or uncertainty,
a time of difficulty or sorrow,
a time of great hope or fear:
you can treat it as a loss or a threat,
and grapple with it
by the might of your anxiety
and the weight of your will.

Or you can accept it as an invitation
to deepen
your awareness,
your rootedness,
your prayer,
your trust,
your soul.

You can fight,
or you can deepen.

The bumps and crevasses
you struggle over
are only the wrinkles
in God’s hand.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
