eagle’s flight – The Grace of Presence – to become present with – 8/14/18

Moving on our from my “Room with 12 Doors” I feel like I’m out on the waters somewhere in a boat either rowing or sailing, it just depends.
Rather like the disciples of Jesus not always sure where they are going, but finding they are increasingly connected with Jesus who is taking them …. somewhere.

And my boat’s name is “The Grace of Presence”, which I’m finding an interesting boat to be traveling in for this time.
I find God calling me to be increasingly present with God, myself and others.

We’ll see where this takes us.


To become present with

Speak and move from “me” to “I”
to become more present with myself
and it feels like my presence needs the presence of another
to fully complete
(and there’s that itch)

Listen and hear to become present with another
and “they” become “you”

and I’m finding my “I” in realizing
God’s very present self
always there
to complete me
which is an ongoing process I am slowly
realizing myself into

in and through this
ever present
ever loving
ever patient
ever smiling

this God who somehow
refuses to be
3rd person absent
in my conversations

About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
