Weighed and Wanting

Where is the pivot?
I don’t like these “swings”
The counter balance of lots of in-betweens
The steady mast of center
Steady as she goes
Tipping slightly empty then full
The Hand of God only knows

Full of self depreciation
Counter with Love undeserving
Creaking back to self analysis
The opposing side pulls hard towards mercy

Beauty is a place mark of both
Only Spirit eyes can see
Dark and lonely need Light and Presence
The core of mystery

Hiding absurdly
Calls out to nakedly unashamed
Placed on the surface of sameness
Yet uniquely all my name

Thoughts and inner circumspection

Waves of silent intervention
Ebbs the one and then the other
Completely different, yet together

Illumination frames each side
Even what the darkness tries to hide
One can not fall at the Lights sweet call
Both know its Master

Up and down
Teeter and totter
Flesh follows the fall
While its Shaper lifts up
Both cause completion

Where is the pivot?
The place of steady unwavering
The part that pairs these positive and negative poles
Endless in its magicians magic to hold each at bay from a permanent landing it seems

Gravity in its unrelenting pull
The updraft of air that refuses to let go if its treasure
Holding aloft the gifts
Letting go the garbage

Weighed on one side
Wanting on the other
The Pedestal faithful to reveal the measure
An Unseen Hand calls out the heavy, making “light” of it all

Yoked in the in-between
Burdens begin to build muscles of trust
Joy flies from one side to the other
Love builds the callous of beauty
Hard it may seem but anchored to the rub

Friction sharpens its contrast
Dismay and despair trade on devotion and prayer
Can’t have one without the other
Held in the Hand of the souls Lover

Weighed without wanting
Wanting without weighing
The illusion of comfort cries out
The realism of needing both wins the shout

The Right Hand of Righteousness
Died on the cross beams
And the Balance became both
Weighed and wanting finds its Home
The Home, the Pivot, the Mast of Redeemed

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
