How sacred are the scars of your choices?
Bent and broken yet sustained within the sound of God’s voices
“Voices?” you say, “He only has one!”
But truly you know He is Father AND Son!
And what of the Spirit that speaks like the moon
Reflecting the Son “He comes behind Me, now, SOON!”
And what of the flowers in whispered delight
Surely you know it’s His voice they sing in the night
Tall trees and green grasses
A’sway in the breeze
His voice in them thunders and weakens man’s knees
And what of the waters with its choir of roars?
Their voices are many, in rocky creeks and sandy shores
All things He’s created
Carry His sound
His Voices are many; and in each – Life is found!
But back to the question I asked at the first
Have your choices reflected quenching His thirst?
Have the paths you’ve chose
Awakened in you
The sense that your feet are not treading anew?
That Someone most Holy
Has come there before
And marked out your travels
On sufferings shore?
Have your thighs burned with rejection
For standing for Truth?
When popular opinion felt more like proof
Has your back ached from scrubbing the floor
Of ungrateful and spiteful who ask for still more?
And what of the loved one who pushed you away?
Did you stay where you landed or run far away?
And when you were wounded, did you lick them and fret?
Or find a place unbruised and offer more yet?
And what of the scars that still bleed within?
That cannot then yet heal because you won’t let Him in?
Has forgiveness run rapid
So as to numb pain?
Or does your “mercy” tie nooses around them the same?
Are your hands cracked and broken
From letting go of your way
All the loves that were lies
And tried to keep you away
How sacred, sanctified, made clean…are the scars of your choices?
If they don’t look like Jesus
Then they don’t hear His Voices.
John 5:25 – Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…
Yes, indeed! I tell you that there is coming a time – in fact, it’s already here – when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who listen will come to life.
John 8:47 – Yeshua speaking…
Whoever belongs to God listens to what God says; the reason you don’t listen is that you don’t belong to God.
John 17:14-19 – Yeshua praying…
I have given them Your Word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world – just as I Myself do not belong to the world. I don’t ask You to take them out of the world, but to protect them from the evil one. They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. Set them apart for holiness by means of truth – Your Word is Truth. Just as You sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world. On their behalf I am setting Myself apart for holiness, so that they too may be set apart for holiness by means of Truth.
John 15:9-11 – Yeshua speaking…
Just as My Father loves Me, I, too, love you; so stay in My love. If you keep My commands you will stay in My love – just as I have kept My Father’s commands and stay in His love. I have said this to you so that My joy may be in you and your joy be complete.
