When we shall be

             Praying 1 John 3.2-3

Beloved, we are God’s children now;
         I am your child, I am beloved,
         I am yours, I am of you.
         I am.

what we will be has not yet been revealed.
         I am not done.
         I am becoming. As you will.

What we do know is this:
         I seek knowing deeper than thinking.

Christ, when you are revealed,
         I open my eyes,
         I dare to imagine.

we will be like you,
         beloved, made in your image,
         divine, breathing your breath.

for we will see you as you are.
         See you in all things,
         see through the eyes of love.

All who have this hope in you
         trust even in the dark.
         What is is becoming.

purify themselves, just as you are pure.
         Raised to new life,
         full of your light,
         pure love.
