Just to be in His Presence

backpain

Within four silent walls

Dull ache

Magnifies the sultry call

sadwet

Self-pity

Lonley

A tearful litany

 

The naggy

But so fleshfully satisfying

Why me?

 

Lord, what did I do

Wrong?

How did I hurt You?

Shhhh

Silence speaks

Shhhh

His still small voice comes in subtle power, never meek

 

There in the hot bath

Soaking more in Him than the Epsom

I observe my legs as they lift

Suspended

Upended

Floating

Swaying

His Spirit displayed

This gentle rocking

Of my limbs

Revealed His power right there in

 

My home

With me

In the tub

 

His presence

So wonder-full

Calmed my nerves, hushed my crazy to a lull

Let go of my angst

I could almost see it evaporate

I began to pray

Lord, that sister on my heart

What about her?

Father, how can I tell her?

 

Suddenly a Scripture verse

Into my selfish brain

One which God knew I needed the name

Upon my Amen

I surrendered my friend

Watched as my lack of faith drained with water, removing my stain

His love so strong

I rushed, though it seemed to take long

Seek and you shall find, when you seek Him, you belong

 

The verse He brought to mind

The one He wanted my sister to have

So she would know and be reminded

 

How He cares for her

Beyond how He cares for the sparrow

In this intercession, He filled my cup so it overflowed

for His child

His presence exists so powerfully with me, in me

Yes, I want my back better

But nothing on this earth can ever

Come near to time with my Savior

 

That direct experience with His love

That says I am above

Pain, depression and my sinful stains

 

I am lifted higher than I can jump!

By His grace

Oh when He sees me, when He looks at my face

I soar

I float

I have no weight

He’s come to save me again, over the gate!

My life is His

Abundant, limitless

Nothing can come between

Me and Jesus the Nazarene

But this is how God fulfilled what He had foretold through all the prophets, saying that His Messiah would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that He may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you — even Jesus (Acts 3:18-20).

My heart says of You, “Seek His face!”

Your face, Lord, I shall seek (Psalm 27:8).

Thank you for joining me here at the poetry blog. Our God is so good. Most of the poems are meant to be spoken. I will read this one at church on Sunday … and perhaps online after that.

Feel free to start a conversation about poetry in the comments. I never took writing in college. The poems I write have heaven-form lol. I just listen and record.

I pray you are of good health and remain that way. I pray too if you do not know Jesus that you come to know Him today. In the event of any pandemic, it is good to know where you are headed after death.

If you have questions about Jesus, email me at juliedibblespeaks@gmail.com

Pray on.

In Christ,

Julie
