PERCEPTION

SOUL-SCORCHING-WONDER

SOUL-SCORCHING WONDER

Isaiah 43:16-21
© Hilary F. Marckx, all rights reserved

Moving through Lent
at the speed of renewal,
expectation and hope.
Walking through the chaos
of life
understanding that life
is the best we get,
but that while it could get worse,
there is possibility
for it being
even more full
of chock-a-block loveliness and grace
than we can imagine
or even think possible.
We hope for so many things,
but in truth,
our hope is for
more mind-blasting
divine presence in our lives.
Moving through Lent
is like walking through a forest
in a no-light-black-night
with muffled sounds of wildness—
it takes equal measures of
ignorance,
foolhardiness and
courage.
Moving through Lent
is like going home
and not being quite there,
yet,
but with a lifetime
of waiting to get there.
Moving through Lent
is like a long history of praising
while stuck in gooey,
deep mud.
Moving through Lent
is like taking that last step
into the heart of
an explosion of
pure, soul-scorching wonder
and knowing —
at last, at last,

at last…

 

This song has become the theme song in the Geyserville Christian Church
