true power

there lives a Being
more mighty than man

He stands taller than the trees
breathes life for us to inhale
His voice echoes like a canyon 
His heartbeat shakes the ground

He is the image of the invisible God
the firstborn over all
He was before
and is after
He delivered us from darkness
which strangled us
dragging us farther and farther from light

He did this by shining love 
in the hole
which we dug ourselves into 
He found us there
scared
sick
and holding shovels in hand

evidence against us
we fought anyways
only to drop the shovels

leaving emptiness for love
darkness for light
ache for forgiveness 

no longer are we alone
for Jesus has come

    2. Yes, He is. Beyond amazing. But that poem. Just wow. I love stanzas four and five where God finds us with the shovels we used to dig ourselves into a hole of sin and heartache and how we fight and leave an emptiness only he can fill...like...*squeals* the imagery. It's just...I think it's the most beautiful poem I have ever read. I kid you not. It's beautiful.
