Elijah

There’s an old story of Elijah hiding in the cave …
He believed he was finished
He was the only one left
He would stay there and die
The earth was finished
Everything was hopeless
—-
We overlook
How the Lord had fed him all along the way
Seeing that he was burned out
fed him 40 days and nights
with him all that time…
—-
And we overlook
How he brought an earthquake
And a wind storm
A pillar of fire but the Lord wasn’t in any of it …
He was in the calm…
——
Remember who you are
The quiet
The calm
The ability to adapt
To create
To hold
And to know…
To know…
—-
Build your life
Quietly and assuredly
There are no shortcuts
The world is not ending
You are not alone
You
Are
In the calm
