ten times i’ve tried to place into words
what You’re doing inside of me.
how much i love Your truth,
how much i love to have appetite for it,
how much it sets free.
inside of me there is a deep work of breakthrough
that i’ve felt for days, weeks.
on the verge.
Your liberating Truth and reality
that when fully received shifts absolutely everything.
i hear it and say yes to it—through and through,
i know You know this.
i know You feel the burning in my belly,
i know You feel the burning of my gaze.
i’m intent. determined.
and i feel Your hand—knitting and adjusting,
pruning and removing.
i feel You leading me there.
i feel Your gentle but strong pursuit
as You know all that this will require of me.
i know that You and i both aren’t content
with waiting for the fullness of our collision until heaven.
and i will do all that it takes
to run full speed off of this cliff and into that breakthrough.
it’s been my yes to You,
and it only ever increases in its fire.
i will do all that it takes to run off of this cliff
and be the most liberated and empowered
lover of You, display of Your glory, lover of Your people.
You keep taking my yes,
and i keep running after You.
and i’m gonna run with You, all my days. forever always.
You’ve always been the most exciting thing i know,
and i love You deeply.
and You’re gonna help me with that part, too.
