Lost coin

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         

What woman having ten silver coins,
if she loses one of them,
does not light a lamp, sweep the house,
and search carefully until she finds it?
When she has found it,
she calls together
her friends and neighbors,
saying, “Rejoice with me,
for I have found the coin that I had lost.”

                  — Luke 15.8-9

The churning you feel,
no placid saint,
the yearning, leaning—
this is not your own,
but the longing of God
burning in you,
the fierce desire
of the Beloved
who will turn the world
upside down
to have you.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
