Pay Attention

Joan-of-Arc-by-Jules-Bastien-Lepage

Jules Bastien Lepage, Joan of Arc (1879) Metropolitan Museum, New York

If you pay attention

you might hear the voice of angels

you might hear the saints of old calling you

calling you to do something extraordinary.

 

If you pay attention

you might be called from the comfort you know

you might be called to action

greater than you ever imagined.

 

If you pay attention

you might be asked to change the face of the earth

to fight for liberty of freedom, love and peace

the perfection of your creation.

 

If you pay attention

you might be summoned to something mysterious

to comfort the afflicted, to heal the broken

and love the unloved.

 

If you pay attention

you might learn that you are loved

and that everyone is really good at heart

but it’s up to you to make them believe it.

 

If you pay attention

you might realize that some things are worth fighting for

to do justice

love kindness

and walk humbly with our God.

If you pay attention.

If.
