The Majesty of the Moon
Suspended in the sky ‘or head
I look at you and wonder how you float effortlessly among the clouds.
Making gravity a laughable offense.
Suddenly I envy your freedom and independence from the wiles of this world. You are beyond what is and above us all. Your majesty beckons me to think and dream of what I do not know
As you hover majestically among the clouds.
Pockets of pain left hidden
Once discovered I inflict on others
The process though painful as it may seem, will leave a lasting legacy
I am destined for eternity
Yet living in a world of fragility
My dreams seemingly too big for me
My faith hinging on what I cannot see
But the master of the universe isn’t finished yet
I must lay hold and stand firm in His promises.
Though circumstances may say that I am wasting away, I must stay
Jesus, You love the whole of me
Even the dirty parts you see
My impurities you wash clean
With a love that is intoxicating
You will never leave me
This truth is both comforting and unsettling
I push you away, tell you to come back another day
Yet you are relentless in your pursuit of me
Always able to break through to me
If only I would learn to trust you
To live fully alive in your love
Knowing full well whose I am, and who I belong to
Who are my mothers?
Who are my brothers?
They are the ones standing right next to me
I must love them the same way you love me
Teach me to see
Again to see the fullness of your love, let your Spirit surround me
