Dim Mirror

There is only One

Who is perfect

And until He comes

Everything is partial

So my hope is

That one day

I will see Him

Face to face

But till then

I know

Love remains

Loves Paradox

While Love has no limit

There is a limit in me

To know fully

As I’m fully known

Yet within this limit

I am fully loved

While knowing there is more

Surprise me

I’ve been shocked too many times

Become numb around the edges

Feel pushed out

Not by You

But by the fight in me

The part that refuses to lay down

The ugly part that says

I can do it

Without You

I know it’s not true

Because I know Your truth

That comes to make peace

Deep down in my soul

That speaks out loud and strong

Loud enough for me to hear

Above all the other voices

That knock on my door

So today I’m crossing over the threshold

Inviting You in

To sit

To speak

To stir Your life in me

So I can rise

Stand

Walk

Even run

And maybe

Who knows

Just maybe

Fly again

Surprise me

Choose your words wisely

Some words seem to run out

Topple over the edge

Stranded like a whale on a beach

Others cross through mountain gorges

Before making their way through desert sands

Too many fall on deaf ears and melt like snowflakes

Hitting a sunlit ground

While others breathe life into a dying soul

The most beautiful fruit of all

More costly than precious stones

Face to face

Perfection is coming

Closer than you think

He’s just around the corner

You’ll see Him in just a blink

He’ll be standing in full glory

Enthroned with splendour and awe

We’ll see Him face to face

As He welcomes us through the door

All the wonders of love made known

His promises drawing us toward

What is yet to come

Then to taste and see His perfection

Finally revealed

To see and know

As we’re fully known

Then bow our heads in worship

Before His Majestic throne

Ultimate Beauty

You are the ultimate beauty

All that is beautiful in this world

Is there to point me in Your direction

As a fore-taste of what is yet to come

All other beauties are short lived

They all fade in the end

But like a beautiful sunset

They remind me of what is on the horizon

The most beautiful One of all

Unfading

Radiant

Majestic

Full glory

Jesus
