High Places

When you have things in your heart
that are bigger than God,
this will cause all kinds of distress.

Release your hold on them,
and embrace the mercy that awaits you.




I know the trial has been long,
I know you didn't believe you could make it.

But, here you are.
You've uncovered every pain and loss.

You are truly blessed,
I love you dearly.



Proper Response

You tap on my shoulder
to look back at all my iniquity.

But this does not define who I am.

I worship at the altar
of the living and breathing God
in heaven, the father of Jesus and me.

So you must go back
to where you come,
to the lake of burning fire.

You are not welcome back.
