Lent 8

Holy Restlessness,
I am haunted by traces of you
that leave me wanting more,
yearning and excited for more---
yet terribly anxious that this is it,
that this trace is everything---
and oh! my God
then I begin to grab tightly
to the few strands that I have
as my fear bleeds onto your mystery;
and I miss the grace of being haunted,
the joy of wanting and seeking.
Keep me on my toes with curiosity;
I hate it---but keep me unsettled,
Spirit of the Living God!
