John 16:13 Jesus said, “The Spirit will guide you into all truth” The Spirit will guide you into all truth The Spirit will guide you into all truth The Spirit will guide you into all truth The Spirit will guide you. The Spirit will guide me. The Holy Spirit of God The Spirit whom resides in all of creation. The Spirit which resides in me. The Spirit of Love. The Spirit with the still, small voice. The whisper in the breeze - rustling winter leaves The soothing voice of waves rolling upon the shore, cleansing, softening, renewing The “Hello!” in the gray branches swaying in the cold wind. The cleanse of the undulating cover of purest, whitest snow Lying within the trees. The gift of warmth shining through the glass Touching my soul The Spirit will guide you to truth. I must only slow to hear, to see, to sense, to know The nudges of a most gentle, loving guide. I must pause and listen, see freshly, deeply That which is around me – here and now I must breathe away the distractions, angst, distrust, disbelief Open slowly, with anticipation, Maybe to just rest. To cocoon until it is time to leave chrysalis and fly. For now, to rest and recover Pause Pause and Pray Pray for peace in my soul Peace in your soul Peace in our world.
