MIRACULOUS POSSIBILITIES

By David Jordan

Enthusiasm overcame him and

Leaping from the boat he

Discovered his miracle:

Attention focused

Faith unburdened

Eyes uplifted

Motivation directed

Toward holiness.

Unselfish and pure,

Filled with wonder,

A lightness of being

In surprise and joy.

But temporary.

Peter thinks too hard about

This miraculous impossibility;

He lowers his sight

Ponders his faith and

Realigns his goals from:

Meeting Jesus

To:

Not sinking…

Therefore, loosing his lightness.

And so it is with us, it seems;

Except when rescued by stronger faith,

Our sinking, saved in spite of ourselves

Lifted for deeper lessons and

Higher opportunities to

Lighten the being and

Broaden the faith of others

Like ourselves…

And Peter:

Human beings,

Better than we know

Lighter than we believe…

With the miraculous possibilities

Of faith.
