Abstract Expression - Overwhelming Love In His Presence

Each night before I close my eyes
I reach for you
And you never fail me.
How wonderful you are
There really are no words
For your majesty.
And your presence floods in
Like an overwhelming wave
As I do my best to tell you
How much I love you.
And you listen!
You take it all in and send it back
And I am beside myself in tears
And the overwhelming presence
Of your love.
You showed me the earth
In the palms of your hands,
Forever watching, forever loving.
Soaked in the oil of worship
I drift off to sleep.

Abstract Expression - Relationship With My Abba

This time
It was fatigue.
I wondered into your throne room.
I wore a linen tunic,
My fro all over the place.
And there you sat
On your throne
As radiant as ever.
I sat between your feet
And pulled the hem of your robe around me.
Without a word
You reached down and stroked my hair
And I wept
Because there is no touch as kind as yours.
I told you everything
That my tired soul could remember
And I drifted off to sleep.

-G.E. Johnson
