Where the wild things are

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
      
         The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness.    
         He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan;
         and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

                  —Mark 1.12-13

Spirit,
drive me out
into my solitude,
my desolations,
my discomfort.

Set me down
among the wild beasts,
fears and hungers
pawing around inside me.

Put me at peace with them,
not the master but the saved,
the one to be tamed,
to listen to them,
lie down among them,
and go my way,
returned
to my feral innocence.

They will roam my wilderness,
I will learn their eyes,
I will live differently.

Among them,
who also answer,
are angels who attend
to those who wander there
so that we will.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
