As above so below. As in Heaven, so on Earth.
He calls us to serve Him; we call upon Him to save us.
We reach out to Him, with all of our own effort;
He returns our plea with all encompassing grace.
We fall, stumble, slip and slide on the path;
He lifts us up, outstretching His arm to do so.
As we ascend to greater heights than could be done alone.
We attempt to go about our business as usual;
He shows us what is more important.
We fail to achieve that which we desire;
He reveals a higher, more rewarding goal to us.
We head in one direction; He shows us another route.
The way is circuitous, never ending from our perspective;
He shows us how to be present in the moment.
