You are MINE and I Am Yours

Personal weakness and

  failure crushed my spirit.

  After years of striving

  for more of His Presence,

 ego and pride had shattered.

  I  was exhausted and defeated.

  SUDDENLY,

   breaking through the clammer of mundane, mindless duties,

  unexpected words

 pop into my mind,

 seemingly out of nowhere.

 "You are Mine"

 but even more startling

 " I am yours".

Frozen in shocked confusion.

Still more light pierces

the ice of my boxed in  brain

 you are now one of Us

in communion with the Trinity

you are in Us and 

We are in you.

Recognition of Truth

then

a slow smile spreads

wider and wider

as

eyes dance with joy.

I am home.

Light  and truth have triumphed
