A moment of uncertainty

How can I share your love,

When I feel such loneliness?

How can I share your peace,

When I feel such unrest?

How can I say rest in you,

When I am full of worry?

How can I say trust in you,

When my heart is full of doubt?

How can I say have courage,

When all I want is to hide?

How can I say have patience,

When there is so much to be done?

How can I do anything,

Without certainty?

How can I wait?

How can I not?

I wait.

For in everything, O Lord, you have exalted and glorified your people, and you have not neglected to help them at all times and in all places.

Wisdom of Solomon 19:22 (NRSV)

    Quite a list of contrary emotions/desires: when in a dark place, how turn to the Light?
    And your resolve [“I wait.”] concludes your saga. Good on you! For helping us to slog
    thru our struggles and have the faith/hope “to wait.” Bill….waiting into HolyWeek
    and Easter.
