Museum or Faith?

Such ground of holy
Of those who know Him
The Lamb of God, the Son of Man
Removing my sneakers

shoesmuseum
A chameleon in the crowd
Though I stretch, I cannot see what is shroud
Is it a tomb?
Recreated with a giant stone?

stairsrail
Wishing I was taller
My desire for higher
Knowledge pushes me toward the rail
Oh to see Him
In this life
Yet here amidst the displays
Likeness denies realness
My heart longs

manrobed
To touch His robe
Just once, like the woman
Twelve years she bled
Instead of giving up
She chased down hope
Now I see it, this mammoth stone
Perhaps cut from a mountain
My eyes feast
Its sheer size and weight
No human could alter its fate

barefootrocks
My soul whispers
Lord, where are You?
My eyes behold in full
The faux grave
Whose back story has no room
For interpretation …

For His truth rebukes demonic divination!

truthfire
My entire body stills

rainthirst
As I suddenly thirst
For Him …
I drink of His presence
Unveiled yet wrapped in His essence

~~~

For this is what the high and exalted One says …

He who lives forever, whose name is holy:

“I live in a high and holy place but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite (Isaiah 57:15).

This poem came to me as I wanted to enter a contest with it. Yet, as He spoke through me, I knew it was supposed to go here on the blog instead.

I have never been to the Bible Museum in Washington D.C. or any other faith museum. Have you?

I want to go, but I long to see Jesus more than a museum.

I must wait until He calls me home. Until then, He gives me the privilege of drawing close to Him.

Thank you, Jesus, for walking with us during this uncertain time. Thank you for Your tender willingness to meet with Your people here on earth, right in their hearts, as You know how much we mourn and groan here without Your physical presence. May Your name be exalted today by the U.S. Government, by Your people everywhere. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen.

Join me today at 11am Eastern time for a live reading of this poem, Scripture and prayer. Go to https://Facebook.com/jdibble4Him to gather with others as we praise Him.

Love in Christ,
