God Blows Through You

Rainier Maria Rilke

You should not wait until God comes to you 
And says: “I am”.

A God, whose strength is vouched for, proved, 
Is senseless, mad. 

Yet you must know, though, that God blows through you 
Since time began, 

And when your heart glows warm and remains true, 
He works his plan. 

Quoted in Everyday Saints and Other Stories 
by Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov)
