day 18 response to #shereadstruth Hosea devotional
I’ve put You high
in unseen places.
A shelf with a box has Your name on it.
Shall I get You down in emergencies?
Shall I place You next to the band-aids?
Bandage of the soul and spirit, You are
In the box, on the shelf, placed high and
just out of reach.
But You, You belong on my tongue.
And You, You belong at my dinner table.
And You, You belong on my door frames,
Strong and ever-ready, purposed for entry.
Yes, You, You belong in the mundane moments,
In the everyday, spilling into seeds of eternity sown in fertile ground.
Yet, You, You’ve been reduced to emergencies,
There, on that shelf, in that box, placed just out of reach.
And so I take You down and I place you higher,
I take You down and I place you higher.
In my heart, in that darkest space, under my ribcage,
I place Your light, let it shine, Glory shine!
For you, You are Yahweh come,
The only SAVIOR that exists ,
There is no other One but You….
Breaking out of the box
Breaking into my heart
Breaking light into dark
Your glory can’t be contained.
