Your peace

Lord, I notice how close You come to me.
You step up to me
with Your peace,
You show me
what is really important.

I relax
and forget all the unimportant details
which always loom too large in my life
in Your absence.

The experience of this hour
in the midst of all that is so transitory
is precious beyond words.

You are close to me
in my feelings,
in my mind,
in my spirit.
You are everywhere with Your gentleness.
You are hesitant
because You respect our freedom
and won’t force Yourself on us.

You are more than words,
more than any possible expression:
Your closeness,
Your hands,
Your eyes which guide us.

Ulrich Schaffer
