Beatitudes During a Demanding Time

Beatitudes During a Demanding Time

 

 

Blessed are the times
when words feel flat and empty
meaning and depth will arise again.

Blessed are the moments
when we feel separated from life
wholeness will again prevail.

Blessed are the moments
when being quiet is tough
peace will make its way known.

Blessed are the times
when creating is challenging
new ideas always emerge.

Blessed are the times
when energy is drained
rest and restoration are gift.

Blessed are the moments
when loneliness seems constant
remember that we are not alone.

Blessed are the moments
when things begin to align
step gently into new beginnings.

Blessed are the times
when being awaken and truth are known
God is always here.
