Lost in my own reflection…

“Knock, And He’ll open the door
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”
― Jalal Ad-Din Rum

love lights the world

I got lost in my own reflection,
and fell behind in my admiration of You.

You who endured my delirium,
read between my lines,
felt my heartache,
breathed for me when I could not,
suffered my silence,
understood my ranting,
brought calm to my chaos,
dressed my wounds,
comforted me in affliction,
sensed my introspection,
and brought me back from the brink of suffocation.

You who were an anchor when I could hold on no more,
found me when I was lost.
You considered me worthy,
clothed me with loving kindness,
illuminated my darkness,
and transformed my pain into radiance.

It is in Your light that I live and move and have my being….
