Devotional Art - Ascend

April 26, 2012

He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
    out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
    and steadied me as I walked along.
~ Psalm 40:2
You have made a ladder that carries me
I don’t even have to climb
You lift me up 
from under
the weight of my own mud humanity
Your water drips and pours through this human land
I am built up 
I penetrate  - no  -  RISE - through the surface of mortal skin
and narrowly ascend with You.
“For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.” ~ Ephesians 2:6
