Two poems of faith and love

Ponder the Infinite

You are inside, looking outside.

You are contained, searching the uncontainable.

There are vestiges of darkness, but they do not interrupt the light.

Tears have fallen here, but they endured for just a night.

You have come upon an intimate solitude.

You have heard a thunderous silence.

Beloved.

Will you join me in this place?

Where impossibilities cease, there I eagerly await.

Come have a seat in my cozy embrace.

Indulge in my love, and I will fill every empty space.

Set your burdens down and put up your feet.

Come ponder the infinite with me.

Come take in my breath-taking view.

I can see forever from here — a forever with you.

You Are

You are a luminous being. The stars seem dim in your light. There is infinite depth to your character. You love like the sun shines.

You are an expansive bridge — a span of great distance and height. You connect me to myself. You carry me across every divide.

You are an inextinguishable fire. Your love is the spark, the fuel, and the fan that feeds the blaze. You consume me with love. You burn like no other flame.

You speak to me without making a sound. Your softest whisper reverberates like a shout. There is power in every word that leaves your tongue. You connect with parts of me so deep, I’m barely aware of them.

You defend me against enemies — even those that can’t be seen. You protect, reinforce, and uphold me. When I am at my weakest, I best see how strong you are. When I collapse under life’s pressures, you carry me on.

I cannot see or touch your face. But I feel your presence in every place. I cannot prove (and sometimes doubt) that you are there. But this world is…
