You took me by surprise.
Your romancing, Your Breath of Life -
Which awakens the heart.
And suddenly, I remember what it is to Live.
Somewhere between the immediate and my inadequacies,
Your majesty, Your beauty slipped behind the clouds.
You were hidden from my view,
Though I was never out of Your sight.
You saw my eyes growing accustomed to the grey.
And without my even asking,
You Burst forth in color and texture -
Showering me in rainbows of Your love.
A glimpse of Your story, a whisper of Your plans.
A shadow of your Beauty, and I melt in Your arms.
My heart swells at the mention of Your name -
And to think - The Great I Am
Sees all that i am,
All that we are,
And calls us
Beloved changes everything.
Your whispers call forth the dead.
The shriveled and the lifeless arise to meet you -
The shattered and the torn become whole in your presence.
Oh, Great Breath of Life,
You are making all things new.
And you begin in me.
All. Things. New.
