transfiguration

March 04, 2011

 

At the summit

we are surprised

by the vision.

 

On the mountain peak

we are amazed

by a glimpse of grace

and a little afraid.

 

We awaken

as the fog ascends

and a light

dazzling in its brilliance

pierces the cloud.

 

There is glory on each face,

we are high and lifted up

but a cross calls us;

there is no glory without death.

 

After the mountain top

there is always a valley

waiting for us.

 

It is helpful to remember

the transfigurations

when we are most overwhelmed;

It is necessary

to focus on Jesus, alone.

 

He is sufficient.

He is all we need.

"Listen to him", the voice speaks.

"Listen to him."
