dwelling moments

what is pain
but a place of emptiness
where one feels sharply
the absence of love

it is necessary to own pain
and trust it will not always be there

pain puts us in touch
with our own heart
with its undercurrent of anguish

we must tell our story
from a place where it no longer dominates
and suffer our sorrow standing

when we are where God wants us to be
He holds us safe
and gives peace
even in the pain

it is a time to dwell deep

to be hidden in Christ
Who is hidden in God
is to dwell at the source of all things

but to be completely hidden
there must be a complete death

dwell deep
