So I...Sit, Walk, Stand

"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus." (Ephesians 2:4-7)


My life began

      there

      at the foot

      of Your throne.

I am learning

      the truth

      of who I am

      in Christ.

So I sit.


"I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." (Ephesians 4:1-3) "Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma." (Ephesians 5:1-2)

My journey continues

      on

      in the Light

      of Your truth.

I am blessed

      by Your love,

      grace,

      and forgiveness.

So I walk.


"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." (Ephesians 6:11, 13)

My destination lies

      ahead

      in the place

      of Your habitation.

I am clothed

      in Your righteousness,

      the armor of salvation,

      shielded by faith.

So I stand.

I really liked this.

Sit - at the foot of the throne.
Walk - in the Light of His Truth.
Stand - shielded by faith.

That is the best advice that I've heard in a long time!

GOD BLESS!

Oh, I like this. So true, these phases of faith... I feel the shift from 'sit' to 'walk' - in my life I mean.

I'm enjoying this new poetic voice of yours. Keep it up!
