Part 5: Chapter 1 – Day 3: One

Welcome to Day 3 of Part 5‘s Chapter 1 of Arise and Shine. Today, Anna is bringing forward the third free will offering of goatskin (no outward attraction).

One


I look

And see

Goatskin.


No seeming beauty

Nor majesty

No seeming kin

To draw me in.


And yet Your heart

Beats there

And leads

Me there return.


Friendship

Woven

Least

Expected.


For in the sitting

In the breaking

There of bread

Communion

You are weaving.


Goatskin

Covered You too

Temple

Of Your promise.


A most precious

Gift as babe

Shrouded

In the waiting.


Your purposed covering

Our knees to bend

Not unto man

But Christ alone.


Word made flesh

Curtain of divide

Your Body

Broke.



Your Temple

In three days

You alone

Rebuilt.


In weakness

From the womb

We're woven

Shrouding wisdom

Of a secret heart.


Until Your breath

Begins to blow

Hardness lifting

Living stones

Revealing.


No, there is

No seeming beauty

Nor majesty

In us.


Nothing

To attract us

To Your beauty

In each other

Not until

Your Spirit pours.


That we might learn

To beat in step

Not to the outward

Seeming.


But in step

With the Spirit's weaving

Rising now

In the Father, Son and Holy Ghost:

One
