Believe

 

I was about to read something online

The page was still loading

I tried to scroll down…

And…

As happens sometimes

The page froze

One word stammered down the screen

I stop and stare

This is important  

Each day I write

Searching for words, the right words, better words

More words than less most of the time…

When perhaps…

What needs to happen

Is for me

To ponder one word, more…

Here in this one simple word

Stands so much

It is worthy of repeating, again and again and again

Believe

Believe

Believe

Believe

Linger over it

Take it in

Own it

Taste it

Hear it, shout it, whisper it…

Think of all the ways it encourages

All it means

Take it to heart, like a child

In simple hope

Sit with it

Settle over it like a hen over her eggs

Then invite God to

Unveil the fullness of this complex simplicity

Ask Him

Yield to Him

And Believe…
