In the vastness of the night, I call out. “God where are you?” Feeling abandoned in the darkness and stillness of the open sky, I am alone. Unable to move out of my despair I tremble in the night. Unable to raise my head for fear of having to change, to let go, or to be still,

I negate the brilliant star that envelops me.

Reflection

In seeking comfort, I must first remember my first love, God. In the stillness of God’s presence, I am comforted. My heart rate relaxes, the anxiety subsides, and through the breathe of Oneness I hear the Word and see the vision that transforms darkness into Light. It is in the stillness of letting go to God that I am comforted.
