The God I Love

The God I Love - a Reflection by Michael Done
God and I have a beautiful relationship.

I ask nothing of Her,
She asks nothing of me.  Nothing!
We want nothing, expect nothing and demand nothing from one another.

There are no strings.  No conditions at all.
God doesn’t even require me to believe in Her.
And, as fate would have it, I don’t.

She is truly the God I love,
And, faithful to the old commandment,
I shall have no other gods before Her.

She is the air I breathe.
In Her I live and move and have my being.
To Her, and Her alone, I happily entrust my living and my dying.

She has held me gloriously from the very start,
And sometimes, in moments of deep joy, deep distress or deep stillness,
I catch Her fragrance and feel afresh Her blissful, ineffable touch.

Selah.
