I’m dedicating this new piece to all my friends in the Manna Community, on this special “Vision Day”

~~~~~~~~

Here I am

not there in the past:

neither basking in success

nor bemoaning failure

Here, now

longing, attending,

waiting, listening

~~~

Here I am

not there, in the future:

neither hoping the best 

nor fearing the worst

Here, now

trusting, surrendering,

receiving, being

~~~

Here I am

not there distant:

neither lagging behind

nor running ahead.

Here, now

Repenting, aligning, 

changing, clinging.

~~~

Here I am

in this moment

calling His Name

touching His heart

Here now

available, vulnerable,

malleable.

~~~

Here I am

not where I would be

should be

or could be

Yet knowing

I am deeply loved

as I am, by I AM
