By God’s side — Life lived to the fullest

If only we knew how close He really is

I stand at His side;

I revel in how close I get to be.

He is so warm and full of love.

At moments I can’t bear the power of  that light,

and at others I wonder:

how have I lived to know anything less?

I don’t want to be anywhere else;

This is where I belong;

where every heart-craving

is opened up

and satisfied —

I, an empty vessel finally discovered

why this has been

the case

for me

so long.

He for whom I was made

is too great to

not awaken

longing in me

to know more

than little things.

In anticipation of Him

my soul breaks,

little knowing

how okay

it is

since He holds me in

perfectly

intact

hands.
