Jesus and Abraham
Every Little Bit
Every little bit,
I offer every little bit to you, my Lord.
Every cell, every hair,
every thought, every fear,
every desire, every heartbeat,
even what I try to hide from myself—
I offer that to you as well.
Receive all of me into you.
Let us become one.
Let whatever of me that is separate
from you be annihilated.
Let me enter completely into the freedom of your love,
the compassion of your suffering,
the joy and hope you know.
Let our hearts smile together.
Let me see your face in the mirror.
Let me claim and give away your love
over and over again.
Let me proclaim your truth—
not my truth, but your truth.
Let me awaken each day with thoughts of you.
Let me thank you for yet another invitation
to love and be loved,
to enter into and be subsumed within love.
That is your truth, isn’t it?
Let your gentleness fill me and pour out into the world;
use me as a fountain.
Let me melt into you
and you melt into me.
Inseparable and indistinguishable lovers,
now and always.
