Keep coming to the land that revives. Keep determining where your course will lead. Choose the light of my shadow without delay. It’s the one safe place, free of pressure and subversion.
Am I not the King that I say I am? Am I not the one you’ve always needed, sought and confided in?
Don’t throw off your childhood because of the pain. Don’t let twisted words and broken bones keep you from my loving embrace. Stay true to the truth you know. You need not understand, you need not fully see. We will work together, incrementally.
I am happy to show myself strong for you. I am happy to bind the woes. But come forth, come and grab the justice you seek. I am God, the source of all you need. Rail against the pain, not me. For I am the one that keeps you safe, steady and seen.
Tell the pain it’s limited. Tell the aches where to hope. Tell the world what you know: that you hurt, yet still know the truth.
Come let me cradle you. Come let me astonish you. Come, be revived and see. I’m here waiting, with a perfect place of rest at the ready. Today’s the day. Be revived, you’ll see.
