Oasis

We start each day alone.

Be aware and be attentive.

Be aware that those who cross your path

is the image and likeness.

Be attentive and honor all

and yield not to discouragement.

The Spirit drove him forth into the desert.”[1]

Prayer and fasting opens us

This rite of passage tests –

If we listen, we are changed.

“I do not know what God is speaking –

what the Spirit is speaking – that is God’s secret.

Listen to His voice. Be in that solitude

and open your heart to Him.”[2]

Jesus says, “Come with Me.”

He needs us to rest…

He wants us to watch…

He expects us to embrace.

We are not worthy

but he is willing to heal.

With him we have zeal

to live and die for the Truth

The Presence satisfies

We bathe in the Light.
