Gatekeeper

Please transform my life, I say to God.
Please let me in, God says to me.
I need your help, I say to God.
Please let me in, God says to me.
I can’t do this without you, I say to God.
Please let me in, God says to me.

Hole inefficiency

It is inefficient to fall into holes
and even more inefficient to fall into holes you have fallen into before

When you encounter a roadblock on the path to God
try approaching through mystery

On the probability that you will need to give it only once

I give my burden to God.
“So that’s it?” I ask.
“Probably not,” God says.

Creamy is your heart

Creamy is your heart
I dip my finger in
and every cell responds

The return

It’s been a while, I say to God.
I’ve been waiting, God says to me.
Sorry about that, I say to God.
Do not be perfect, God says to me. Be pliable

Devotion to you

Do not worry, says the Lord
I never give up on you;
if you fear this, imagine infinity, again and again –
that is only the start of my devotion to you
