The Schedule


finally, after seventeen years

my courage stirred but shaky

I dared speak my life

a fearful man seeking guidance

un-concerned at last of other's thoughts

welcoming their correction


and was passed over

a slip of paper with a schedule

too hard a taskmaster

to allow even this diversion

within the courts of God


so close

yet so infinitely far


At bible study recently I raised my questions

on personal healing, needing healing. We had

some spirited discussion on the topic. Yet after

a minute or two we were guided back onto our

study. I think It would have been appropriate to

have extended the discussion, perhaps again

to experience the grace of God.


Who knows what could have happened?
