Steadfast. Immovable (Part V)

Steadfast. Immovable (Part V) is the fifth 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.
            Overcoming Love overcame.
            the Conqueror, the Victor, still stands
            so close to the peasant
            touches the slave
                        the addict renewed into a sweeter addiction
            a beloved devotion to the flood
                        men couldn’t ever stop.

            oh, we’ve written it
            yet its outside of us
            and somehow still
            written inside the world…
            oh secret men have ever searched for
                        Deity that touches men still
                                    (and i will sing in ink, sing with me,
                                                sing: Christ, steadfast. immovable!)
