Inspired by Psalm 130

From the depths of my being I cry out,
“Hear Me!”
“Heal my spirit; fill me with hope and joy!”
Grant me your peace,
Show me your way,
Have mercy on me.
O, Divine Essence,
My heart waits for recreation,
For my own willingness to be renewed.
Sing to me your sacred songs,
Your holy songs of love,
Songs that ring out truth and life.
I wait.
For forgiveness for my past,
For hope for my future.
I wait.
For joy in the here and now,
For love and for peace.
I wait.
Because you are the Heart of Forgiveness.
You are the Substance of My Hope.
I wait.
Because you are the Source of All Joy.
You are Love and Peace.
I will wait.
Because without your undying mercy,
Without your recreative power,
I would not be who I could be,
No more complete, and no more whole,
No closer to where and what you are.
And so I will wait.
Though I may cry out,
Though I may feel broken and lost,
I will wait.
Because it is worth it,
Because I need you,
I will wait.
