Steadfast. Immovable (Part IX)

Steadfast. Immovable (Part IX) is the ninth 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.
            i come in on Your shoulders
            i eat light
            i resonate with peace
            i ask, and it is given
            i sing with you, i sing.
                        our fellowship on Your initiation.
            you are everything—my soul weeps and laughs
            our Fragrance in the courts
                        dressed in elegance, we dance
            among the pillars,
                        upon the Throne,
            and i sit up in Your lap.
                        away with me You ride
                                    to a sleep land
                        i am wrapped in your garments
                                    and i breathe
            the rhythms of Your heart
                        “how precious You are to me”
                                    my heart beats back to Yours
                        “how very precious, my son, my darling…”
            and i hear that we are One.

            when You are God, 

what am i?

            i'm so glad to be nothing, 

when You are mine.
