The pull to impact
If all that was required,
And all you could do
Would it be enough?
To simply be and receive His love,
Would it satisfy?
To dismiss yourself from the road of accomplishment and simply be,
Like a child.
Could you handle being the apple of His eye,
And find the greatness you crave therein?
For the mystery lies here
That in receiving His love as a child,
Resting in His gaze,
Life is produced.
By simply letting Him love you.
Love produces life.
More powerful than all my striving, all my dreaming, all my pursing.
The act of simply being.
Oh, for the maturity of being like a child.
