J0URNEY

Father,

Baptism

Is like a womb that

Opens to give birth to Jesus

In my soul.

And then,

The journey begins:

With Jesus 

I walk beneath the open sun of faith,

It's rising and falling, and

With each  day, faith matures and

As faith matures, so Jesus matures in my soul;

Even when

Flesh's dust storms blind,

He forgives with mercy-grace, and

He grows within;

Even when

Failures scorch and scald,

He heartens with grit-grace, and

He grows within;

Even when

Worldly temptations tie my eyes,

He breaks the hold with seeing-grace, and

He grows within.

Jesus is ALWAYS my Shepherd-Companion

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
