My heart aches
Lonely, thirsty sadness
On the brink of another
loss of heart
As another dream
slowly rips apart
I need a bigger and better story
than the one I currently inhabit.
"You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again; from the depths of the earth,You will bring me up again.You will increase my greatness and comfort me again." (Psalm 71:20-21 ESV)I am the son who ran
I am the son who stayed
Is this how Moses learned humility?
Is this how Joseph's blessedness got from his coat into his bones?
Lead me to a bush burning
Redeem my life from the pit.
They found in God
a story big enough to live!
Boundary lines beyond
The borders of their sorrow.
God-with-us: The Way, The Companion, The Comfort
The great ones learned to receive
obscurity, loneliness, and insignificance
as teachers and friends
I'd rather be ripped apart by love
than held together by what I can control.
