When God’s voice said, “Be!”
and all the guilt and anger in me vanished
I began to know as I am known—
to understand in deepest heart
that what our mind has told us we must do
can never be divine directives
because our mind attempts to be God,
not listening for his holy will.
When God said, “Be!”
He gave me new relationship
where tasting, feeling, sensing
takes precedence to thinking and deciding.
When God told me to be
I became a born again as Jesus once described
those apprehending life’s abundance.
