In Your Name

Show me Your light.

Send me signs.

For they are

the guideposts of my life.


Symbols and


I see You,

I see me in them.

My body says slow down,

My mind won’t listen.

Guide me.

Show me how.

I yearn for Your voice

I am waiting –

my ears are not quiet yet.

And I know that when they are,

I will hear Your whispers

in my heart and mind.

I will find Your mark

stamped on my soul.

That is all I want.

This closeness to You.

It is not time for me

to come home yet.

There is life to be led –

in Your name.

Work to be done –

in Your name.

Joy and love

and light and

laughter to be


in Your name.

Then I am close to you.

This world is easy to stray.

It is easy to get pulled in, and away.

I am wading back to You.

Fighting the current

that would push me

away from You.

All I want is to be.

To be what You know me to


It is in Your name

that I live.

It is in Your name

that I love.

TéO is my name for God. But it is also interchangeable with my my guardian angels who send me messages, answer my questions and often take over my writing. This explains italics, pull quotes, headers and tense person changes. I’ve attempted to differentiate Their thoughts and words from mine. Learning to Let Go and Let Go(d). Trusting Surrender.
