Meditation – December 2011

 “…For with God nothing will be impossible.”

Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

Luke1 v37-38 NKJ

God has created

In you

In me

A precious Gift

And yet

We wrap and rewrap

Re-gifting ourself

Again and again

Never having truly

Opened

Or

Owned

The True Treasure within

Are you willing?

To settle long enough

To allow

God

To pull those beautiful bows

To unknot the string

To break the seals

To peel back

Layer by layer

To tear the pretty paper   

Unstick the stuck

To open the box

Discarding the lid

Revealing the ordinary

Are you

Willing to withstand

Unpacking

Though complex

And

Sometimes painful

To change the order

To Challenge

The treasure may be

Deeply hidden

Disguised

Wedged tightly

By packaging that

Holds

Hides

Confuses

Confounds

You

God’s Treasured One

No bran tub

No lucky dip

Finding the treasure within

Finding the fullness

Of all God wants you to be

May take

Time

Effort

God’s own Spirit

Will Divine Truth

From falsehood

Will enable

Will empower

Will make possible

If you are willing…
