Daily asking for my presence to inhabit your lips,
Do you not see?
Do you not see that I’m all around you?Do you not see that I’m in the setting of that sun you cry about so often, waiting for the bleeding of the colour to explode across the sky and splatter the name of the Lord in big bold clouds that cling to heaven like a child suckles the life from his mother?
Do you not see that I’m in the moon and the stars? Shining ever so brightly, illuminating the pain that you feel, bringing darkness to light so that I can peel off those layers of Sheetrock you have so conveniently placed as a barrier to your heart.
Do you not know that I am like a blazing bulldozer? Anything and everything that I touch breaks down, sets a flame, and sends a smoking flare into the world to alert those around you of my glory.
I am breaking down your walls
I am breaking off your chains
I am breathing life into your lungs
I am setting this world on fire!!!
Can you not see???
Can you not find yourself so low that you look up and see the glory of the only One who has ever truly accepted you for who you are…
When you were broken in the pit, you; when you falling in love with the drunken words that would fall off your lips at the sight of a pretty girl, or a passing glass of weakness. I was there, violently emptying your stomach; setting you free from the empty promises that you so greedily placed upon your flesh, but you decided it was worth evacuating your body of all that you thought was worthy to replace the truth.
I am bringing you to the well.
I am emptying your pot.
Do you see those around you?
Have they fallen into your trap?
Here I sit with you at the well. When you are on your knees I am expanding like a blazing fire to consume you. Heat rises. You will rise in my name alone, to wash the feet of those around you. To break those chains of the years of abuse you wear around your neck like a proud father. The pain that you feel, the suffocating, nauseating, binding fear that you walk in…
Set down your pen, and look up.
Look at me!
Look at me!
I am setting you free! I am making you alive!
Breathe me in, and I will wash your feet.
This wall that you’ve built for yourself is no better than a paper canvas; thin, flimsy, breakable..but watch what I can bring to life!
I am building you a new wall
A wall that will not be broken down
A wall that will not be moved
A wall that will never be overtaken.
You are my wall, and I will build my kingdom around you.
