Steadfast. Immovable (Part VII)

Steadfast. Immovable (Part VII) is the seventh 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.
            sun of righteousness risen high like noon
            so apart yet so a part of everything we do
            i do not eat but what you give
            i do not breath but that you live
            i do not live but that you rise
            i do not rise but that you abide
            come to Christ, my soul. come.

            my skin-weaver, a heart beat,
            and a world we once shared
            all time you now bear with God.
            exalted in simple obedience, in love
            we claim you now to find and be found
            heart-light in men, come near us again
            make haste, that we may drink deep your light
            for i close my eyes and i fear again
            only You
can make everything alright.
