Preface

Words against the Darkness

Preface

I’ve gone through a lot of dark times in my life. Especially if you are thin-skinned and sensitive like me, you get fast touched by the events around you. But I don’t want to become cool and tough because vulnerability is the main characteristic of a fulfilled human life. When you can’t feel pain you can’t feel joy as well. My prayers and blessings are the result of my struggles against the darkness. They helped me to overcome the times when I had the blues. Maybe they can comfort you too or inspire you to write down your own feelings and prayers.

God bless you in your dark times, my friends!

Yours Volker

Words against the Darkness

Like a Bird

helplessly I raise my hands

I am so small and insignificant

in this society

in which only counts

power youth beauty and success

how much I am respected and loved by you

God

you hold me

like a wounded bird

Thank you!

God

let us be healers

of wounded souls

let us go over troubled waters

let us be strong enough

to admit our weaknesses

and

in the end

all what we

are

have

and live to see

is a generous gift

of your heart

Dark Night of the Soul

each word is a search

when I speak me out

and say nothing

your being is not to grasp

you are obvious

like the light

I think of the darkness

when your name break to me

in emptiness

only a dark silence

remains comforting

which is brighter

than every earthly light

Prayer in hectic Times

when my heart

is filled with my daily routine

don’t give up to reach me

God

when I don’t have time

to care of you

take care of me

when the world around me

needs my full attention

so that I forget you

don’t forget me

when I go my own way

go with me

and give yourself back to me again

when I’m afraid of the future

open my heart for your love

which drives away every fear

I want to gift myself this day

I don’t want to think ahead any longer

I still want to gift myself this day

everything that’s called itself tomorrow week or month

is anyway your element

therefore God

I want no longer lose heart

I know you are going to carry me into tomorrow

please only give me

a strong trust

because at times

it’s very difficult

to build only on

“I will”

Don’t be afraid

God who is strong like a lion

and tender like a feather

keeps us safe

God who loves us madly

shelters us

so that nobody can harm our souls

God who is like no one else

spreads his hands like the wings of an eagle

above us

look

there is nothing

what we have to fear

God bless you!

God lay the sky under your feet

so that your problems are like clouds

God fill your heart with sun

so that darkness becomes light

God anoint your hands

so that they become gentle

God bless you

so that you find your fulfillment

The One

the one

who finishes every dark night

he

who is brighter than the light of every dawning morning

the one

who is eternal

he

who holds life and death in his hands

the one

who is almighty

he

who shows his humanity in a weak child

the one

who is pure love

he

who shelters every step into tomorrow

he

who is the one and only

bless you

On Eagle’s Wings

the king of eagles may carry you on his wings

through the storms of life

the sun may lay you a smile in your heart

in a little boat across the stormy sea

on your ways

he may firm your step and make you glad mooded

so you may be sheltered

by the old God

So that you can live

The One, who lives at the margin of society,

because God takes shape in him,

meet you in silence,

that you can recognize God.

The One, who is too precious for this world,

which nails him to the cross,

because it doesn’t understand him,

touches your wounds,

so that you can live.

The One, who is born out of God,

who is oblivious to himself,

who lives,

because God is everything to him,

bless you.
