Today’s text

Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
   He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
   he restores my soul.


Stillness without quiets
the inner heart awakening
the soul to need and oneness
with the One needed.

Water draws the soul to
its banks to sit and watch
light play, shadow and blue
upon the face of depths the
eye cannot see.

Blind to what lies beneath,
the soul waits for waters
to part revealing
sacred place where soul
and Soul are one
and hearts know

But first is the wanting, the
ache of aloneness, yearning
to hear the Voice within
one's own, to feel the One
within hidden depths of self
inseparately one, united
in One Love that is
Source and Home.

In stillness the soul waits,
led into the quiet by
One who waits for us to come
home to the waters, entering
there another stillness 
that is not ache
but the bliss of knowing.

Pr. David L. Miller
