For God’s Sake

Obedience is the harmony of wills,
taking the will of another
doing the will of another

Obedience is not blind
Submission is not imposed

A delicate balance this compliance:
going along and going alone,
some of me and some of them,

What’s in it for me? Oneness
Timing is everything,
the union of not one-not two

Obedience is not either-or
Submission is not one way

Unprepared we hesitate,
if we hesitate we lose;
to be caught one must catch

“ ‘Nothing is impossible with God
and the power overshadows you’;
and, she said ‘Let it be’ ”

Obedience is holding on
Submission is letting go
