Let Your God Love You: A Poem for Lent by Edwina Gately

Mar 18, 2020

Be silent.
Be still.
Alone.
Empty
Before your God.
Say nothing.
Ask nothing.
Be silent.
Be still.
Let your God look upon you.
That is all.
God knows.
God understands.
God loves you
With an enormous love,
And only wants
To look upon you
With that love.
Quiet.
Still.
Be.

Let your God—
Love you.

For reflecting in solitude or in the company of others: Do you find it easier to give love or to receive it? What does your response suggest to you about your relationship with God this season?
