Doing Well +Advent+

 

“You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”  - 2 Peter 1:19b

“You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” – 2 Peter 1:19b

The true meaning

of “doing well” in life

is to ‘at-tend,’

to extend our longing hearts,

to stretch our souls like a dancer

toward a light

that illumines

our dark places

until we discover

the morning star

already begun

rising within us.
