Cycle

There is a curious cycle
In ministry and life
Between stuff I need to talk about
And stuff I need to do.

It takes a deal of time
To talk about the stuff
I need to talk about.

It takes a deal of time
To do the stuff
I need to do.

Cycle and conundrum
For the time that they demand
To talk about or do
Is singular, one and the same.

God of the ages, come and aid!
Unknot the tangled time.
Guide the conversations
And regulate the work. 

For there is a curious cycle
In ministry and life
Between stuff I need to talk about
And stuff I need to do.

Aid me, God, I pray.
Amen.
