Gifted and Able?

Gifted and Able?

I?
In the eyes of God
Gifted and Able?
I?
Vulnerable, a victim
Damaged, doubting
Reluctant, resisting
Insecure, fearful and
Weak, oh so fragile and weak
Barely alive
Near to death
Gifted and Able
In the eyes of God?
I?
Precious and privileged
I?
……
Yes
In the eyes of God
Gifted
……
For Love, Light, Being
Gives Himself to me
Love for
The unlovely
The marred
The damaged
No holds barred
Love, Light to
Dispel
The fear, the doubt, the resistance
Unquenchable Light, Being
Bringing life and strength to
The insecure
The vulnerable
The weak
The dying
……
Most assuredly I am Gifted in the eyes of God
For I am Gifted
By the grace of God
Awesome grace
……
And by that awesome grace
I am indeed Able
By the grace of God
Able
To bear the almost unbearable
Speed with which
Love, Light, Being
Is cutting out the gangrene
Binding up the flesh-wounds
Re-breaking and resetting the imperfectly set bones
And all without anaesthetic
For the Pain
The intense, almost unbearable
Pain
Is the
Lance for the
Festering boil
Of anger and hatred
Hidden
Unacknowledged
Unpermitted
Unexpressed
Unrelieved
For too many years
No anaesthetic
As I writhe and scream in anguish
Often unaware that
I am being held securely by
Love Light Being
Yes I am indeed
Able
By the
Awesome grace of God
……
Not my doing but
His
My only contribution
My need
My insufficiency
My helplessness
My hopelessness
My disobedience
Into which desolation
He pours
His provision
His superabundance
His strength
His atonement
For my sins
And
For the sins of the world
Himself
Love
Light
Being
……
And in that atonement
In that At-One-Ment
I receive
Freedom from imprisonment
Release from oppression
And my unseeing eyes are restored to
Sight
To see that
Love Light Being
Are for
Me
Yes, even for
Me
And more –
Love Light Being
Are not just for
Me
But also for
All who unwittingly
Made a bad thing
Worse
And my unseeing eyes are restored to
Sight
To see also that
Love Light Being
Are for
The abuser
……
Such unimaginable
Freedom Release Sight
Can never be obtained
Except by the awesome grace of God
Who pours out Himself
For the healing of the abused
For the healing of the abuser
For the healing of the world
At Calvary
Love Light Being
Consigned to the rubbish-heap
To redeem
Unlove Unlight Unbeing
……
But
Unlove Unlight Unbeing
Will never
Never
Never
Have the last word
For Love Light Being
Bursts forth
On the day of resurrection
Then
And now
And to the end of time
……
Oh
The boundless
The ineffable
The utterly
Awesome
Grace of God
