Steadfast. Immovable (Part IV)

Steadfast. Immovable(Part IV) is the fourth of an 11 part series of poems I wrote in 2010 during a time of transition. Transition has always been hard for me, but this situation, I really experienced God shepherding my heart as I left one role and move onto another. He did a lot of shifting on the heart level for me. These poems celebrate how constant and strong He is in the midst of life's uncertainty. (1 Corinthians 15.58)

Christ steadfast. immovable.
            unending glorious weight,
            the inked blood on our heart
            He wrote the secrets in light
            our essence more Him than us,
            our fears, more His that ours,
            our hope, is life only in Him
            our passion, He wears it like wool,
            the fire within us burns
            because His eyes twinkle
            they melt our souls.
                        and we shiver.
                                    tasting delights in rivers
                                    and splash in joy
                                    and swim in grace
                                    oh, we drink in love
                                    and breath in hope
                                    it sounds like life
                                    a silent, long satisfaction
                                    oh hope, oh joy, oh grace, oh love
                                                our life is His satisfaction!
