It depends what you want

My path does not guarantee fame or glory
or the fulfillment of your desires.
My path guarantees me.

Sickness can leave you helpless

Sickness can leave you helpless:
It can remove your arms and your legs
and your courage and your piece
but if given to me
it can become the whetstone
as your journey continues on

The clay and the potter

You make a lot of pots, my Lord:
I do not ask to be a pot
I do not ask not to be a pot
just touch me, Lord;
keep your hands in me until I am done:
that is all I ask

The Promise: I Give You What You Need

The extent to which I can trust this
is the extent to which I stand on solid ground;
the extent to which I cannot trust this
is the extent to which the ground rips apart

No matter the challenge, the pattern has been set

Each cliff, higher and higher
still I say:
Jump

Pure courage

The self can be overtaken
what is Beyond cannot –
root yourself in this

Be not small!

Be not small!
Break out of the box of your fear!
