in the uprooting…


In the uprooting

I surrender my life

my plans

my purposes.

In the uprooting

I let go

of what passes away.

In the uprooting

I give Him back

the life I owe.

In the uprooting

Good gifts return

to the Giver.

In the uprooting

False securities

are stripped away.

In the uprooting

I find Who and

Whose I am.

In the uprooting

I learn what it is

to be sustained by Him.

In the uprooting

I become a wanderer

an exile

a traveler longing for Home.

so that, in the uprooting

the lost and

hopeless may find

the way to Love.

AWA 7/3/11
