Isaiah 41:10

'Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous hands'

Forever


All I felt was darkness.

Its form hung over me like a thick quilt of sin
Anguish, craftily stitched into its dark pattern
Sorrow, my only companion
But even she failed to surmount the emptiness
My core shivered with its presence

Can emptiness truly mean the 'absence of something'?
Surely not the emptiness within me,
For the emptiness itself was positively something,
Something that was desperate-
desperate to separate me from forever
I know of the forever that follows emptiness;
The only forever that could- fire

So, I did the only thing that could have been done
I shouted- shouted louder than emptiness itself
On my knees, I called
Face down, body low, soul open
I let His spirit fall, let His spirit wash over me, let
His love pour over my sinful head

Lights-
and their sweet guidance
He is a light
guiding me through the dark
The pure, brilliant light,
that leads us into the true eternity,
The forever of Heaven.
