Swirls



I pour the milk into my coffee and the swirls of white mix with the dark of my coffee and I am reminded of You. Darkness that enters my mind is swirled in with Your Light until the bitterness is made smooth and I am still.

"O LORD God of Israel, the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Incline Your ear, O LORD, and hear; open Your eyes, O LORD, and see." (2 Kings 19:15-16)


Do you hear me God?  Do you see me, down here swirling milk into my coffee, staring out the window, while quiet tears fall?


"Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)


Yes, yes You do.  You see me.  You hear me.  Not one single tear escapes Your notice and You wipe them away with the promises of Your unfailing, never ending, deeper than the deepest ocean, LOVE.


"So I'll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all
I'll stand
My soul Lord, to You surrendered
All I am is Yours."
("The Stand" Hillsong)
