As the Sun Rises (7)


those rays that peak through the trees,

I know it’s you Lord.

I know it’s you because I see the same

image in my heart full of dark spots 

hidden behind limbs of fear and shame,

yet when I feel your presence 

your light shines into those nooks and crannies.

the shine you bring is the warmth

of the sun rising over a warm canyon 

after a cold night of isolation and rejection.

beams of light anoint my head

with love from you

and fill empty places left in me

by well-meaning people

tortured by the legalism 

sent by an ill-meaning enemy.

Lord set these people free

and restore my Spirit as well,

with the grace found only in those pools of shine.
