Grace and Peace to you.
If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation:
everything old has passed away;
see, everything has become new!
— 2 Corinthians 5. 17-18
I am ready for a new Creation.
I am willing to be in Christ,
to be a word in your song,
a ripple of your pond.
I am willing to be made new.
Everything “mine” I let go of.
All that is “so far” I surrender.
I am ready to be re-created
scoreless, nothing on my record,
created, given, not accomplished:
as your Beloved,
ready for the stunning beginning,
the first day’s wonder,
the orienting hope,
the shimmering not-yet-knowing,
the wide field of the world,
lifted out of this narrow grave,
opening before me.
I am open
for everything, all Creation
to be made
in an instant,
the next miracle,
this present moment,
