still and free


You're a thief in the black night
you burst into my being
the shattering of crinkling glass
beneath the weight of cowardice toes.
You tip-toe on the line of faith
and step into the fervor.
Arguing vague rules of right.
Defending wrathful wrongs.

The heat of your breath
drips thick and slow --
its the flickering wick
on a slender candle,
it's the suffocating humid air
that breaks into my lungs.

You make me still and free.

Well, friends.  It's been a while.  No apologies, just excuses.  But I won't bore you with them here.  Let's just say with the changing of the seasons marks a very challenging, stressful, joyful --- and yes, wonderful time in my life.

There is nothing like the feeling of wonder when you feel as though you are truly following the will of the Lord.  I'm here.  I'm wandering the halls of a calling, something beautifully constructed just for me, before I was even spoken into being.

"With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith."
-2 Thessalonians 1:11
