God loves you. God trusts you.


Child, Child,

If God didn’t love you, no eyes, no ears
would weave into your gut, no
heart would arch into the inner soles
of your shoes, showing you where to go.

If God didn’t trust you, there would be
no joy to oil your neighbors, no love to
cover the sins of your enemies, no Good
News to paper the walls of your head.

Divine Cardiology

by Mary Harwell Sayler

Love pours
from the veins,

rushes through
blood cells
parting a red sea.

Your infusing love
transfuses me,
induces me
to come home:

In God’s heart are
many chambers.
