Unleash Your Inner Warrior
A few days ago, in my daily prayers, I read something so wonderful that I had to share. I hope it moves your heart and helps you lock eyes with your Creator.
Come To Me
by Father Thomas Dominic Rover; theologian, playwright, poet.
Come over to me, all you who are restless,
and I will teach you how to be quiet,
how to leave yourself alone.
Come over to me, all you who are anxious,
even if I don't take your anxiety away,
I will change it into fresh currency
as you turn your cares
into greater belief in my caring.
Come over to me, all you who are lonely,
I was lonely too,
and could find no place
to lay my head.
Come over to me, all you who worry
what others really think about you.
It doesn't matter.
They misunderstood me,
no matter what I did.
Come over to me, all you who are always
talking and pleading and explaining yourselves to others
I know you inside out. I know the worst.
So you can come to me without any explanations.
Come over to me, all you whose great plans
for yourself have failed
You don't know how lucky you are.
And others too.
Come to me, all you who can't stand yourselves.
I touched lepers,
and once I called a man out of a tomb
who had been stinking there for four days.
So come over to me -
I can stand just about anything.
Come over to me, all you who can't stand other people
I know what is behind their misery,
I know the worst in them
as I know it in you.
And I embrace you both.
Come over to me, all you who fret about the past.
I was there, I was part of your past,
and I have forgotten all about it.
So be like me and forget it too.
Come over to me, all you who can't live peacefully in the present.
Come to me now, without reserve.
This is the way to live peacefully in the present
Come to me, all you who fear the future.
Do not fear. I AM your future.
