Voice

Your word and will are real
Solid as stone
Unashamed and stark 

Sometimes your voice
Is a lions roar
Sudden
Unexpected 
Dangerous

Everything stops
A brand new paradigm

It's not polite
It's not still
It's not small
But it's definitely your voice 

There are times when you stop me in my tracks

Stop
Go

Stay 
Leave

Unmistakeably you
Unbidden
Wild, unpredictable you
The god of an Old Testament 
Unchanging

You give me all I need for the fray.

So I pick it up
And follow you home.

Luke 2: 8-12

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Saviorhas been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
