You Nourish

“A man’s spirit sustains him in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?”
(Proverbs 18:14)

“God humbled you and made you feel hunger. God then fed you with a food you had never known – to make you understand that human beings live not on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
(Deuteronomy 8:3)

Crushed in spirit,
humbled before You,
I repent of pride.
This vast hunger
far surpasses anything
of insatiable flesh.
I’m not immune.
You know, O LORD,
the void, Sheol,
darkness that awaits
me ever patiently.
You nourish me
moment to moment
with light, love, life,
breath, Presence.
These truly fill me
when I let them.
Amen. AUM
