One Heartbeat

One Heartbeat

Entombed within
Dank, wet walls of
This pit
I sit alone,
enshrouded by
thick mists of
darkness.

Hopelessness, despair
Fear
Making dead weights
Covering my shoulders,
My forehead,
I cannot lift my eyes
Above the foe,

The enemy who seeks
To destroy, devour
My very self.
Until
A small glimmer begins
To glow and grow
Becoming

The light within.
Stronger it burns.
It is from of old,
That first taste
of your love
almost extinguished
just not Yet.

It calls your name,
This light,
Repeating it soundlessly
The heart
Perceives the source
Strength is given
To look up.

Your love reaches
Down
From Your Paradise
Eternal
I see your face
whisper your name,
Yeshua!

Dark chains
Fall off
Released from my enemy’s
Hot hate
Rising, lifting
Carried upon the force
Of your shoulders

To sit enthroned
In heavenly places
Of purest Joy
Secure in this knowledge
I now embrace,
Not for One Heartbeat
was I ever alone.
