Feeling small?

Blessed are the poor in spirit.

Feeling small?

Hollow?

Inadequate?

…alone?

Tired of so much failure?

So many missteps and false starts?

Are you

deep inside

afraid you’re just not enough?

Perfect.

You are, you know.

You’re all those things.

So am I.

Which is great

because one of Jesus’ very first teachings

is that our poor, impoverished, spirits

are just the kind of space

God loves to fill.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
