trust

Knock, knock

It must be Him

Yes, it’s the voice of my Lover

Calling me

Drawing me

Once again

To go.

 

Inviting my soul

On another adventure

Out on the road

I hear the distant waves softly hit the shore

The moonlight silently screaming of vast unknowns

The bigger picture

Eternity

 

How many days have passed since

He brought me to the cliff

The edge of my reasoning

Seeing nothing but darkness

The rim of my knowledge

Heavy heartbeats. Many questions.

The brim of my comfort

And yet that same soothing voice posed a soul exposing question

 

Will you jump?

Leap off the precipice with nothing to hold but Me

Will you let go?

Release your hold on this throne

Your deathly grip evidenced by the plan Bs

 

Do you trust?

Love

Do you know?

Love

Have you felt?

Love

Will you receive?

Love

 

Jolted back to the present

I feel Him tug once again to follow

Those distant waves have come all too close

Crashing one over the other,

Once lost in my thoughts I now find myself on a raft

Surrounded by a boundless ocean

I lift up my eyes in alarm

And am immediately caught in those blazing eyes

Burning with desire for ALL

That jealous flame requesting. No. Demanding ALL

Demanding my absolute

Surrender

Ultimate worship

Unconditional Trust

Unwavering Obedience

Child-like dependence

He wants it all

 

The raft seems to shrink as I stand suspended at

The edge of my reasoning

Seeing nothing but darkness

The rim of my knowledge

Heavy heartbeats. Many questions.

The brim of my comfort

And yet that same soothing voice posed that soul exposing question

 

Will you walk?

Step out on the water with nothing to hold but Me

Will you let go?

Release your hold on this throne

Your deathly grip evidenced by the plan Bs

 

Do you trust?

Love

Do you know?

Love

Have you felt?

Love

Will you receive?

Love

 

With my eyes locked in to those eyes,

I feel all fear evaporate like mist above the waters

I remember now

Perfect love casts out fear

I remember now

The One who promises to hold me, daily upholds the sun and moon

I remember now

Those hands formed me in my mother’s womb

The same hands that were nailed in my stead

I remember now

Those eyes watched over me since my birth

The same eyes that weep in intercession for me

I remember now

Those legs leaped over mountains, valleys to find me while I willfully wandered the deserts

of life

The same legs that knelt down to wash my feet

I remember now

That mind has thoughts of me that outnumber the sands on the beach

The same mind that travailed for me till He sweat blood

I remember

That head was pierced with thorns for my sake

I remember

That back bore the stripes for my wholeness

I remember

That face was spat on, mocked, ridiculed and beaten beyond recognition that I would be

accepted

I remember

The cross

 

Herein is love:

That a man lays down His life for another

This is Love

He is Love

Love never fails

He never fails

 

Though He slay me yet will I trust Him.

 

I look into Jesus and I walk on the sea
