Worthy

          When Simon Peter saw it,
          he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying,
          “Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!”

                           —Luke 5.8


Don’t believe the voices you hear
coming up out of the grave in your head,
snaking around you from the shadows,
saying you are not worthy.
Yes, a miracle shimmers under your feet,
yes, you draw wonders from dark mysteries,
yes, you hold the shoals of heaven in your hands,
yes, glory you can’t yet see is more than we can bear.
Yes, and you are worthy,
you are worthy.
The miracle beneath the surface
is not yours to hide.
Open yourself, and be astounded.
Then get up off your knees and come.
The world needs that light.
