You’re not far away, as some believe.
You’re not harsh and judgmental, as some preach.
You’re not aloof and proud, as some suppose.
You’re right here, within my mind and filling my heart.
Your Holy Spirit lives not on a throne,
but within each humble heart who welcomes you.
And if we let you, as my heart desires, you will fill our minds with You.
Oh, to have my mind filled and overflowing with your Spirit, dear Jesus.
Oh, to have no room for scattered thoughts of worldly junk and distraction.
To have You so filling me that the bad stuff can no longer invade my mind.
That’s my prayer today.
And on this Father’s Day that some of us celebrate,
I give to you dear God my faith, hope and love, as weak and flawed as they are.
And to my earthly dad George, I am so grateful for all your love for me.
And all your wisdom, and patience, and compassion.
Look, as my dad, you are an image of our Spiritual Father.
