"The marvel of Redemptive Reality is that the worst and the vilest can never get to the bottom of His love." ~~ Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost For His Highest

food not only for mouths alone
but for eyes, ears, needy hands
reaching to embrace the Only One
overflowing with power to keep them alive

expanding side to side
a river eternal flowing blue and clear
not only is this water living
but also contains every good thing
these streams reach even me
abundant enough to find a once-hiding soul
too afraid and too stifled to understand
her own Creator wished her no harm

an ongoing road
guides the weary travelers home
even while they move from valley
to sparkling mountaintop
the earth is always beneath their feet
pilgrims find grace in unlikely places

God's pride is in everything made
for we are all from Him
every true heart continually joins
to Him, singing songs of forever divine love
through creation universal He unveils His splendor

these are the mysteries
I still struggle to learn
they would fill me
if only You would take the key
unlock me, unleash the flood
that I can be soaked in Your presence
while I am truly calling You good
