Oh, in the beginning, when you were alone,
did you dream of someone like me?
In the beginning, from soil and stone,
when you breathed out a world to be…
did your dream a great dream,
did it glisten and gleam,
for all the angels to see?
In the beginning, in the depts of your heart,
were you thinking, already, of me?
This poem by Steven James in his book ‘Story: Recapture the Mistery’ makes me wonder and ponder on God. Religion has become a set of rules to live by but I prefer a relationship, a passionate relationship resulting from God’s desire to love us and the ways we try to reciprocate that love.
It makes me feel loved, longed for and valued.
