Yearning… ( a prayer)

I yearn for you,

will you meet me

in my yearning?

Will you hold me,

comfort me,

in the depths of your love,

where my desire for

lesser comforts dies away…


How I long for them to die,

yet so often they hold me,

“Just a morsel, just one sip, one more…”

The voices are soft and enticing…

“it can’t hurt, it won’t matter..

you can start again tomorrow…”

” tomorrow, tomorrow…”

But tomorrow never comes. ..


So pushing last the clamour,

I cling to my deepest desire. …


O Spirit,

O Christ,

O Mother and Father of all…

meet me in my desire I pray…

meet me in my yearning,

set me free….

even from myself….


Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11: 29-30)


About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
