Empty

Empty

Are you the river emptied into the bay?
Today be engorged by the rain.

Are you the pocket emptied by the drawers?
Today be stuffed with barter gems galore.

Are you devoid and destitute?
Today cling to sufficiency.

Are you exhausted, depleted, evacuated?
Today float up to the brim. Let the Spirit lavish you.

Are you abandoned, neglected by empty promises?
Today make plentiful ones.(to yourself)

Are you stripped of goals, ideals and notions?
Today find Ample. Have a picnic.

Are you the child without contents?
Today be jam-packed with hope: a promise of evolution!

Are you too old for discoveries?
Today find profuse extravagance. Breath in your inheritance.

No Ark Required

Jeremiah 3:16; 4:3
You will no longer look for the Ark of God’s Covenant…the ark will not be reconstructed
for the Lord Himself will be among you…The city of Jerusalem will be the throne…all nations
will come to Him there.
Plow up the hardness of your hearts…

I don’t need
a sanctuary
to find God.
He is
in the city:
A spirit
singing to my soul.

I don’t need
an ark holding covenant.
I live
and move
and breathe
Him.

He has
pierced
the fierce
imperviousness;
Resides
inside my spiral.

Through it
Beyond it
Before it
My inheritance!
