Strive first for the wholeness of Creation,
and these things will be given to you as well.
Do not be afraid, little flock,
for it is the Beloved’s good pleasure to give you the whole realm.
You strive for it
yet it is pure gift.
You long for it
yet you already have it.
You want to know your place in it,
but it is all yours.
It’s easy to forget
but it’s the most important thing.
You know you need it
but even more you need to trust
it is given to you,
all of it, gladly,
everything you need.
