Naked Before God

Naked Before God

No one can see the depths of their own poverty.
Without words or thoughts,
I must force myself to stand naked before God.
Only then can I learn to say truthfully:
“Blessed are those who know that they are poor.”
Coming face to face with my own total poverty
is the only way to come face to face with God
and find true enlightenment.

If you ask God a question,
God will respond.
And God responds
to the level you are willing to receive.

The problem isn’t God.
The problem is me.

If you take God seriously,
you eventually will have a wrestling match
with God.
