My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free: genefirn@yahoo.com

The Tell



desires
needs
drive our inner being
more than
imagination’s fantasies
longing for contentment
pleads for mercy
upon deaf ears
leaving us wandering in a
desert searching for water to
satisfy our thirst
born to yearn
starving for
meaning and purpose
only finds emptiness 
in fleeting satisfactions
more- always more-
never enough
with no end in sight
can this be all there is?
are we only to live and die
always yearning to
fill our cravings
sometimes so compulsive
yet at other times
noble and breathtaking
finally to be condemned to an
endless slavery of
seeking but never finding
only in the end to discover that
infinite desire requires
infinite fulfillment
conceived to embrace Love
beyond human measurement
experiencing true satisfaction 
can only be realized
in Perfection
never imperfection
never in things
but only in Another
a Personal entwining
where Eternal Love is
forever shared
the Thou of I and Thou
the sign of Whom
is embedded in my soul
planted there at my conception
a Mystery alluded to by
Revelation’s Tell:
restlessness of heart
for the One who is
beyond all expectations
the fulfillment of all desires
it is He who becons me to
knock and it will be opened
seek and I will find that
He was always there
waiting for me to
say yes and find
Rest in Him


Reflection/Discussion:
-How does "tells" in poker compare to the "tell" in human nature?
-Are there any other "tells" of the Eternal One in human nature? 
-How would you describe them? 
-How could you engage someone in a conversation about the "tell" of the infinite?
