Peaceful Wildness

I wrestle with myself in the wilds of my mind,

struggling with mundane matters;

but God lifts me from these depths

of my depression and my worries.

I soon become calm and peaceful,

even when surrounded by the wild.

I think of God who then thinks of me.

I live in the reality of His Sabbath,

God’s day of rest in the grace of our world.

I adopt the manly virtues of Jesus . . .

compassion,

humility.

Purpose, and

I return to the peace of this wildness.
