Part 4: Chapter 2 – Day 5: With You

Welcome to Day 5 of Part 4’s Chapter 2 of Arise and Shine. Today, Anna is sharing the 5th offering of scarlet thread – the cleansing blood of Christ.

With You

Where You would take me
I didn’t see
All You’d do
I didn’t see
All the cutting off
And pruning
That every step forward
I’d meet
Another ending.

But now I know
Each door
You close so firmly
Is not Your withholding
But Your bestowing.

For when all I can see
Is pain and labor
Birthing nothing but air
You see
The Living Word
Crowning in me.

You see each dying
A resurrection birthing
Mercy meeting truth
Righteousness kissing
Peace.

Blessings and prayers
Pouring from my lips
For in each trial and temptation
You are paving my path straight
Uniting my body, mind and soul
In You.

Bought with a price
Each surrender You are working
A sacrifice holy
And pleasing
In Your blood
Becoming.

Your Spirit in me
A sweet scent wafting
From Your dwelling place
I AM
Awakening.

For each closing door
Is but Your purpose for me
To be still and know
You alone are God
That You will be exalted
Among the nations.

Each closing door
Is but Your knocking
That I might hearken
To Your heart beating in me
And open the door
To dine
With You.
