a psalm of just be

from the newly released book Growing Grace: A Book of Psalms Celebrating Creation

Eternal One,

I confess that I long to sit

within your silence,

but I have become distracted

by worldly concerns.

I want to hear that still, soft voice of yours

whisper in my ear,

“You are my beloved.”

Help me Just Be in the Spirit,

surrendering

all that distracts me

from what is holy–

Peace.

Serenity.

Rest.

As I sit here, my Abba,

remind me

that in this present moment

I do not need to act,

I do not need to respond.

I should simply wait

to hear you whisper,

“Come here, my child.  Just Be with me.”
