It was asked of my heart,
The source of intentions,
"What would your desire for inner life be?"
"To soar like the eagles,
To be anchored through life's storms,
To have heaven's riches dwell fully in me."
"To be like a tree
That is planted by water,
Whose roots go down deep, drawing food from below.
Where the wind
Can blow harshly,
The rain fall down heavy
And yet it still stands for its source it does know."
"Ah, dear heart
That is noble,
And certainly lofty,
Just how do you plan to fulfill such a call?"
"Resting sure in
Hanging tight to
Leaning into the Wind of the Spirit, that's all."
