He still speaks… to hearts flung open wide, brought near like a child.
Am I listening?
He still reveals…shines light through lens of searching eyes.
Am I seeing?
He’s still longing…waiting from a distance, longing to forgive and
heal effects of rejection and brokenness.
Am I receiving?
He’s still loving…waiting for me to drop arms of hurt and self-defense.
Am I surrendering?
He’s still listening…for questions yet to be asked and answered.
Am I asking?
He still speaks.
He’s still God and I am not.
This day I come as a child drawing near through
the blood of the Lamb, acknowledging His holiness and my unworthiness.
Grateful He gives the right to call Him Father. Grateful He’s still Savior and Lord
after all these years and all these *bottled up tears, measured, and written down in
I am grateful He still reveals light and love when I lift
the eyes of my heart, repent and return.
For God so *loved…He gave…His Son…
*the exact representation of all the Father is and does.
He never left us…we left Him.
He didn’t abandon us…we abandoned Him.
He didn’t lie…the tempter did…and does.
He still breathes new life, peace and rest, to worn and weary pilgrims.
He still promises weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.
He still speaks truth!
What truth do you need to hear to be set free?
Jesus said: “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”
(John 8:32 NLT).
