Resonance with the Eternal

“Then, together with them, 

we who are still alive

and remain on the earth 

will be caught up in the clouds 

to meet the Lord in the air. 

Then we will be 

with the Lord forever.”

— 2 Thessalonians 4:17, NLT

Sometimes when I am settled, 

my heart swells in waves 

of great faith, when the veil is thin

or moved aside, lifted, and I feel 

God’s presence, almost 

as if my soul pushes 

under my skin

in an effort to fly out.

I know there is more 

than this bone shell — 

my soul sings in resonance,

in beautiful communion, 

with the Eternal.

Sometimes when in contented 

wonder I am looking up 

into the sky, I believe space 

might break wide open, 

and I could fall inside

into the blue and then black

past the stars into

a light that goes on

ending up in forever….  

One glorious day,

this my soul knows,

I will fly.
