My Journey to God

God’s Desire

When you find a tree
whose posture is confident and strong,
and whose lush, lovely, leafy arms
spread across like a giant welcoming umbrella,
then
go there.
Sit.
Claim the shade
and the peacefulness.
And when you become silent and still,
you’ll discover God’s desire for you—
to be well
and whole.
