Overcoming Unrest — With Just One Breath   3 comments

I reach for something to ingest

To fill this body of unrest

Rather than to seek true peace

By spending time with You


Why does this body, in this world, resist what You command

And why does it appear to be making the demands

This is the greater mystery of all to me…

In contrast when I put down food, or drink, or media

And turn my heart to You

Your Spirit always fills me more than any other thing can do


Only You, oh God can gratify

Can satisfy my craving

To be in harmony

At last, I stop, and find my breath

The Breath of Life, with Peace, in You
