The Breath of God
Is this the time of Be Still!
and KNOW that you are God?
Are my thoughts of giving up being turned more to giving in?
Do I need so many visits to this black place of despair,
to bring about a fiercer cry that begs to see your light?
Do you let me feel the deapest darkness of my own humanity?
So that I will crave the fullest light of ALL that is all Christ?
Is this another chance for me so HE becomes the MORE?
Is my hardened clay being softened by the Master Potter’s touch?
Has my mould become more pliable? Is it shaped more like your Son’s?
My precious Lord and Saviour! He died to set me free!
So why continue on with thoughts of endless blame, when all was covered perfectly to free me from this shame?
JESUS did all this for me as he bled upon the tree.
He loved me with the cross and I am His eternally.
My tears now bring your healing touch and let me know you’re near.
This truly is a trial of your *mercy in disguise*.
I have found the blue of Heaven hidden in this blackest black.
It turned into a little gold when added to my soul.
Another piece of treasure that has no earthly price.
“Take rest, oh soul”, it whispers loud, “and let ME breathe in you.
The very breath of JWEH has filled my starving soul.
This word – J W E H – is the original Hebrew word meaning GOD. It can really only be pronounced like the sound of breath
*Thank you Laura Story for your song ‘Blessings’.
I am humbled by His grace that makes me answer ‘yes’.
