freedom

gorilla boogers & planet pinball
hairy cemeteries, centimeters of history sliced
like rock revealing fossil, disappeared guts and brain grease.
you only take this next step
one time
careful, tread up, chin up, pull up yourself
they say.
they forgot
we’re all in a ditch dump
waiting to be saved
the dungeon door’s open, the debt’s paid. you only gotta take the next step called faith.

awe(and then)some

Glorious and holy. Infinite yet intimate, loving clay and dust like us

Climb a ladder to the stars You named
Each hair on my head numbered

Spoke and there was light
Rewind to the womb
Where You knit me together inside my mother
Separated day from night
Every tear I’ve ever cried You hold in your bottle
Wrote my name in your book of life
Oh the wonder!
You’ve always been with me
From day one
To the day I’m done
here
God You see
Every heartbeat
Every blink
Every thought I think
Each sigh
Every heart cry
When I scream
And when I lie
Your love undoes me
The antidote to my bleeding soul
Empty me of me
Fill me up with You, God
Fill me with you God
Oh, the wonder!
Star breather
Ocean speaker
Come breathe again in me
There’s no life apart from you
Every breath filling my lungs a merciful gift from God above
(thank You)
Oh the wonder
Your understanding, beyond measure
Your beauty, beyond comprehension
Your Spirit alive inside this flesh tent
I don’t understand how a holy God could have affection for a people stained by sin but that’s where faith comes in
You sent Your only Son, crucified, arms stretched wide across the grey sky
Your love trickling to the ground, crimson droplets, a lovely tide, earth turned upside down, undone love himself came down, lived a perfect life, died to give us life. Rose victorious, conquering death, shame, sickness–his loss our gain. Unconditional love! I’m wrecked in your presence, tears splatter, heart pierced, unravel me Lord Jesus I surrender
Oh! the wonder…

stem-vein-petal, lavish photo of grace

heart palpitations patter pitter as earth shatters into 8,000,001 pot shards

tectonic plates broken

Son of Man broken on a tree for us

end ahead

beginning anew

today tomorrow forever

better than yesterday with You.

ending disguised by distraction

slumbering society: WAKE!

factions say this

denomination say that

tick tock time’s out

will you agree now?

Jesus is Lord

His love can bring you on board,

en route to eternity with a King whose majesty

outshines all light & bright

too beautiful to say

too awesome to contain

Creator, Sustainer, I can know You–for real?? For real. For REAL!!!

AHH!

each breath I enter

each exhale surrender

never exit

always present

undone

in Your gaze.
