my Saviors grace…

What does it take to be free from

the theatrical soliloquies

of carefully pre-selected words which

fall so gracefully on the ears of

those who hunger for his presence,

yet stand at the threshold and leave empty.

Stripped away from all the “wow’s” of the crowd,

to simply being in his presence.

Seeking him as I bare it all,

before the throne of my Savior’s grace,

there is where you will find me.

carrying the wait…

Definition of WAIT: stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or until something else happens.

I will no longer be held captive to the ideology of carrying the WAIT.
