I’ve seen healing
and I’ve seen pain.
I’ve walked the wasteland
and He’s cleansed me in the rain.
I weep tears on the thirsty ground.
Such sorrow that cannot be voiced with sound.
I’ve seen so much taken from those I love.
All flesh is like grass
and all its glory like the flowers of the field.
The grass withers
and the flowers fall.
And I’ve felt the frenzied fear of frailty.
The knowledge that one day
we will have to let go of it all.
But the Lord
He spoke to me from far away.
He broke my idols before me.
He spoke into my Spirit and said His love is greater.
For he has loved us with an undying love.
Again He shall restore the breach.
Again He shall plant on pleasant hills.
He shall plant vineyards and he shall prune the vines.
And we shall drink of the Holy Spirit
And He will fill us
For His love is better than wine.
My heart cried out “Abba, Father”
and He filled me with His Love that transcends time.
For God is love
and all who are filled with His love walk in the Divine.
In Him we live and move and have our being.
His love reshapes the world
Like the potter molds the clay.
He gives us hope for tomorrow.
He gives us bread for today.
I’ve encountered His power.
And I’ve been overcome by His glory.
But His undying love is a deeper story.
I’ve spent my life in the shallows afraid of sinking deep.
But a shepherd must follow the Good Shepherd
to feed, lead, and feed his sheep.
I see a world divided.
But my heart shall not be deceived.
Oh death where is your sting.
For you will be brought under the feet of Jesus our King
For the Law of Love
and the revelation of His Word shall endure.
He shall restore all that is broken.
I know this for sure.
