Bright Promise

He who promised is faithful.
What has Thou promised me?
Wealth – riches,
Worldly prosperity?

No, not at all.
Much deeper. Much.

Life abundant
This life within.

This thumping of the heart
Driving me to You,
Away from sin.

To the light that shines
So brightly
Its luminosity withstands,
Urging me on.

Though I fight
I long for its command.



Drops of my soul
Falling down
Softly now
On the ground.

Pieces that only
You know about.

Beleaguered places –
Hurt and doubt.

Bits falling away
On and off
In solemn bursts
As I wait on You.
