...And the tell-tale glow
Saturates the Sky
An infusion of Day Dawning
Life Coming Back
Flooding Golden and Rose
The Heavens I look into
Which have borne me,
Bear me still,
Live, Move, and have Their Being in me
Thus We fly
In unutterable sacred union
Headed into this horizon
With healing on Our Wings
For Such A Time As This
For Whosoever Will
For All who would know
The Incomparable Gift,
"As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young,
spreading out its wings, taking them up,
carrying them on its wings, so the LORD alone led him."

We've domesticated the idea of Redemption,
Reduced the Lion of Judah into a whimpering puppy,
Done an unconscionable disservice to our charge, The Beloved,
The "Whosoever will",
dying for what Jesus died for,
The Domino Effect set off by the Cross,
The curse-crushing line that was drawn
in that Bloodied sand...
How dare we, who hold Truth, temper it,
We, who claim to speak for the King,
Corralling their Freedom,
Conditionally ladling out (if we even do that) this Tsunami of Salvation
with pithy talks on Sunday mornings
and impotent platitudes
which we've found more palatable, more plausible,
and preferred to
the Power of the Spirit
The Cross was not just for pretty.
Either It Is Finished,
or it is not.
Redemption is not just a feel-good thought,
It Is The Provision of Providence,
It is The Panacea we wield like a play-thing,
instead of the Living, Powerful, Double-Edged Sword that It Is.
Redemption is the Crux embodied in the Crucifixion,
as an oak tree in an acorn
as an atomic blast in a steel shell
It is the Apex of Creation
Redemption does not merely placate us
in the face of regrets and fall-out from our "best-laid-plans"
It does what our "filthy rags" could never do...
It Covers us
Triumphs over the wreckage
Trades us Beauty for Ashes
Is the Conduit which Carries us
Beyond the heart-rending, leveling losses...
Redemption Rebuilds, Restores, Reboots....
Redemption tangibly transforms our endings into Beginnings
Redemption rewrites the story,
Redemption Changes Everything.
"I Got This."
"I AM The Resurrection and The Life."

"There is a Time to be Born"
To Make Do
Curled up in the corner
of this broken open cocoon
is No Longer For You
These Wings are not just for pretty
But to Fly
To Brave Many Worlds
To Bring The Beauty...
Not to sit in the stale air
of this once useful womb
But to Soar on Wind-of-the-Spirit
Trusting Deity's Masterful Design
To Expand now
Into All He Intended
Into More than this flimsy frame of reference
Allows you to Fathom
To Burst these barren boundaries
To See the walls blown off the Horizon
To Be Born into this Wide-Open
And into Every Beloved Life
"Here am I, Send me"
"Go then, in this might of yours."
Isaiah 6:8, Judges 6:14
