Reckoning (Poem)

Updated on September 19, 2013

Heavenly Father, Creator:

Your goodness overwhelms me,

It is so pure and kind

I am sensitized by Your glory,

You specialize in loving kindness, and

Tender mercies and grace,

You are the master of brilliance,

Your nature inspires me, and

I find myself desiring

My own personal transfiguration,

Longing to bear the fruits that are evidence of my salvation

If I took all the words that mean something great,

I still would not find the right words that can define Your greatness

Yet, there are times when my spirit utter words

I cannot understand with my intellect,

Those are the moments when true freedom is my reality

The unchained melody of my soul,

Time when I know that I know that my redeemer is alive

My heart and my soul shout Hallelujah, I praise you Lord!

The love You have is unsearchable

By Your mercy it is tangible,

You are touched with the feeling of my infirmities

When I am weak and failure shouts to my soul, retreat!

You unveil Your glory and I behold your goodness

My desire is to be an empty vessel that only You can fill,

The inner woman where you can reside

As You emanate Your love through me,

Not just a mental ascension but a spirit felt transition

I want to feel what You feel,

Your heart beating through mine

Chock full of munificence and generosity,

Your standards are high!

Your love resurrects my heart

It makes me want to experience the magnificence that You inculcate,

Widen my perspective of your majesty

I don’t want a puny or frail outlook, illuminate my spirit!

So that I walk in the light

My spirit is Your candle,

You are the radiance of my being

Lord, enlarge the borders of my heart,

Let your infinite and endless love transform my heart

Take complete control over the reins thereof,

Let me give as well as I receive

So that compassion can flow freely through my heart,

Your heart is without limit

You are infinite and there is no end to Your glory,

Because of Your love I too will put on immortality

Remove every boundary in the secret places of my heart,

It is where I find safety, where I take refuge, it’s my space

It is where I quietly and internally pray,

The place where reckoning is taking place.

      Good afternoon, PHILLYDREAMER" how are you today? The emotions transmitted are the result of the healing of my emotions that God masters so brilliantly and I love Him with all of my heart. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The hope in you is not a little thing, because it is at this very moment producing faith in you. Stay encouraged, God loves you!
