[After the resurrection] Jesus opened his disciples’ minds to understand the scriptures, and he said to them, ‘Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.’ Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and, lifting up his hands, he blessed them. (Luke 24:44-50)
You should not wait until God comes to you
and says, ‘I am.’
A God whose strength is vouched for, proved,
is senseless, mad.
Yet you must know, though, that God blows through you
since time began,
and when your heart glows warm and remains true,
He works His plan.
