The winds rage
As the determined press in
Seeking the eye of the storm
False convictions knock us down
Demanding we submit to the religion of the day
For when men chose to use God as their means of demand
They do not back down
Even when they argue with God
So few even know that a deeper place exist
Beyond the ease of the piety of men
Beyond the choice to put on a suit

More meaningful habitation
A place of miracles and open visions
A place of encounter with the Living God

From towering mental riches to the rags of a peace-drenched soul.
Untethered from the order of the dog eat dog,

It is purely through grace that God reveals Himself to us
But on occasion we forget that
And we begin to think of ourselves higher than we ought
while making Him lower
We judge and assess God based on how He responds to our demands and prayers
This is not right
God does not owe us anything
He acts and reacts based upon a wisdom that we can not even begin to grasp
For He is Holy, Perfect
We must understand that He is good, and we must trust that He is orchestrating a masterpiece with all of what we know, dream, and imagine
He invites us to be friends… but we must never underestimate the expense that He has paid for us to take a seat with Him
It is our place to be humble and receptive of all that He is
This is the highest place in this life.
