Living Now

I live,
Because You died,
Not in guilt,
But in the freedom of Love.

Choices are arrayed before me,
Multiplied by the days of my Life.
With the breaking
Of each New Day,
I rise forever
To choose You,

With the breaking
Of the Bread,
With the Lifting Up,
With the Cross
Before my eyes,
I am a witness
Of the Resurrected One.

You, Christ, upon the altar,
You, Christ, living anew
In me,
Walk the Earth again
Leaving now my footsteps.

One thought on “Living Now

  1. You, Christ, upon the altar,
    You, Christ, living anew
    In me,
    Walk the Earth again
    Leaving now my footsteps.

    This is something we all must keep in mind as we go about our ordinary lives, especially when we have to deal with disagreeable people or circumstances.
