Intimacy of the Healer



holy dove over water


IN my blindness, Your hand guides
IN my deafness, Your hearing is flawless
IN my muteness, You interpret my heart’s meditation




THOUGH my anguish persists, Your love prevails
THOUGH my nights are sleepless, Your mercy rules the dawn
THOUGH weariness hounds me, Your strength renews


WHEN tears refuse to stop, You validate the deepest pain
WHEN doubts infect my mind, Your patience is my shield
WHEN enemy arrows inflame my heart, Your presence quenches the burning

A cascading waterfall, flanked by flowers.

In You, I am
In You, I hold together
In You, I heal

In You, I LOVE

From this day forth and for eternity


Meditations of the Embattled Spirit

    Thanks Dr. Cooper. I guess that’s the positive side of what rises from seasons of excruciating sorrow and desperately pressing in, pressing in, pressing in…to His presence.
