Hope Revised

All along the journey
we cast our nets,
convinced that what's pulled in
will be sufficient
as investment for our dreams.

But ego and anxiety have ways
of clouding the water,
so we aim for comfort and security,
rather than open ourselves
to the vastness of sacred vision.

Give us patience, O God,
to find still water; courage
to reach past control; faith
to trust beyond comprehension.

Give us hope revised,
always revising,
until we rest in you.
