How in this World are Yours?



We cannot add moments to moments
No matter how wildly we rush
Life is a tick by tock delving
Before vast eternity’s hush

If we could unclench today’s portion
What would we find in its grip?
Would it be a hallowed awareness
Of transient moments that slip?

God, teach me how to live fully
Not burdened by moments unmet
Lest I miss the present unfolding
And thus fill its hold with regret

...and stir in me flames of passion
Not roused  by the gathering of things
But the gathering of beautiful moments
That pure, purposed living brings

Granules of sand form the desert
Drops form the depths of the sea
And moments form hours then lifetimes
Dissolved in eternity

Life is a grace-lent experience
A moment by moment lease
Do we choose a frenzied endurance
Or moment by moment peace?

  1. Living fully is something we all must train ourselves to do. It must be a conscious decision!
