Cohesive

Heard the preacher use that word
Never before thought of it
That way
Of Him that way.
Pulling things together
Sensibly and equitably
Law and reprieve
Code and practice
Jew and Gentile
Love and truth
Body and spirit
Priest and sacrifice
Self-doubt and
The greatest of hopes
Stories turned into
Most noble performance.
Jesus.
The reconciler of all wannabees
With our actual present walk.
….And another word
From some good reading.
“Consist.”
By Him all things consist
All of life’s push and pull.
The goldsmith watches
The liquid promise
And the furnace
Averting disaster
And bringing forth
Exquisite treasure in due time.
…and now lights have come on
and I pause
and I weep
contented.
In Him.
