My New Poem: What Does the Christ Do?

Christ poem

What Does the Christ do?

The Christ:
    wakes us from every nightmare
    removes apathy, terror, frustration and distress
    annihilates distraction, procrastination, and inhibition
    banishes pain and sickness, error and sin
    sets us free from whatever holds us back
    heals and blesses and teaches us to soar
    washes us clean, renders us uncontaminated and pure
    smooths every rough spot
    breaks through impasses and red tape
    corrects every discord with harmony
    renews our humble hearts and encourages us
    shows us the way… the narrow path… the upward climb
    exchanges sadness for joy, fear for love, and doubt for hope
    helps those who think they cannot, realize they actually can
    fulfills our destiny, supports our purpose, rewards our right motives
    provides light and merciful goodness in confident abundance
    reassures us that we are safe and secure, valued and worthy
    speaks God’s messages to us in a way we are able to understand and act upon
    manifests the complete idea of God:
    perfection infinitely reflected,
    radiating outward in all directions
    our Saviour brings us salvation
    not far off, but here and everywhere, integral and essential
    a universal generic of which each of us is a specific facet
    inspiring jubilation, generosity, reverence, connection, awe.

Where two are joined together, the Christ is there. What are we waiting for?

Christ poem

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
