Poem: Too much to take in

If Jesus knew
that his disciples would not remember
half of what he was saying
and that they would panic and worry
and hide away from their troubles,
puzzled by misunderstanding
and full of fear –
doesn’t that give us
some kind of comfort
when we find ourselves battered by life
and forgetting our faith
in times of trouble?

Yet Jesus knew
that one day they would be inspired again,
as they recognized
that though his body had gone,
his Spirit was still living in them.
