Have your days swiftly stomped by like a spastic, frantic Brahma?
Do your angry complaints stem from grumbling disobedience?
Yet, even your disobedience cannot stifle He who has claimed you.
You have been called to crave God – to walk in a worthy manner?
Were you implored from within to show tolerance –
Dredge up great love that you didn’t possess?
According to the measure given, have you any ability to summon it?
Have the grace and mercy attained been gifts too great to open?
Because they were bursting with brilliance too hot for windy words,
They slap the cheek so hard with contempt as if to intentionally wound.
Where human strength is famished, count yourself amazingly happy.
There is the one who will not fail you, give yourself up
To touch perfection is to burn so know full well the price.
This unquenchable flame claims all deception, none of it can stand.
You can no longer walk the futile path of iniquity.
Ignorance and hardness of heart are devoured with hideous noises.
Did Abraham, Moses, David and Job feel the trembling fear?
Did they hesitate at the scorching heat of His great light?
Only truth stands firm inside that flame of all flames.
You are destroyed beyond all recognition, to be sure.
Your former self hisses in a merciless melting agony.
Deceit pleads for mercy where there is none for it.
All is refined or consumed as the fire burns furiously.
Thereby laying aside falsehood and vain sayings - One heap of ash
After your gold is also placed upon the dust, new life awakens.
Therein one finds freedom – Therein one finds Jesus.
Ready as He is to show you how to walk within His worthiness
Go and be blessed forever more for you have become the cherished one.
Be branded by the Fire and find that which your soul craves.
He waits with love beyond the dreams of the most fanciful.
