Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

The centurion sent friends to say to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; therefore I did not presume to come to you. But only speak the word, and let my servant be healed. For I also am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, “Go,’ and he goes, and to another, “Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave, “Do this,’ and the slave does it.”
                  —Luke 7.6-8

God does not try.
God does not wish,
or command from afar
and hope we obey.
God says, “Light,”
and the word shines.

God wills life.
There is no command, no obedience,
nothing conveyed from there to here.
Trees put forth leaves,
earth turns green, living things blossom.
What God wills is what is
and what is most deeply becoming.

The saints live in harmony with God’s energy,
trust it unfolding,
even as we will otherwise.
The healing you yearn for,
the wisdom, the peace,
these God has already spoken.
They have already begun to become.

You yourself are a word God has already said,
a word of grace,
grace that was, and is, and ever shall be.

Deep Blessings
