It is hard to focus at times. Easy to lose faith and wonder what on earth is going to happen next. The ground seems to be shifting under our feet as we await the latest news and feel like we should hold our breath. That’s how it feels to me some days anyway. I am a bit of a thinker and I regard myself as a believer… I believe there is a bigger picture even if I can’t totally understand it and sometimes need to re-affirm my faith in it.
If you feel a bit like me, I hope these words might help a bit….
The Bigger Picture
We are part of a bigger and better picture
Even if we cannot see it,
Part of a Universe where we are free,
Even when we cannot feel it.
Part of a humanity where we see those who are invisible,
Rather than those who are in the limelight;
A place where we don’t nurture our fears
At the expense of others,
Or turn our backs when others weep.
In the quiet, long hours
With the challenge of despair,
We long to find this place of hope and new life,
For here is where all the bad things are banished,
No explanations are needed,
Yet we know all we need to know.
Now broken hearts are settled
And all that went before
Drops into an ocean of understanding.
And it is here, this place,
This bigger picture…
Waiting to reveal itself
When powerful hands let go of the reins
Review the compass
And allow us all to find the right way.
Here in this all-loving Universe,
Generous, kind hearts
Do their best for the common good.
