This I know: / My life is in your hands. / I have nothing to fear. // I stop, / breathe, / listen. // Beneath the whirl of what is / is a deep down quiet place. / You beckon me to tarry there. / This is the place / where unnamed hungers / are fed, the place / of clear water, / refreshment. // My senses stilled, / I drink deeply, / at home in timeless territory. // In peril, I remember: / Death's dark vale holds no menace. / I lean into You; / Your eternal presence comforts me. / I am held tenderly. // In the midst of all that troubles, / that threatens and diminishes, / You set abundance before me. / You lift my head; my vision clears. / The blessing cup overflows. // This I know: / You are my home and my hope, / my strength and my solace, / and so shall You ever be.
