Here and Now

Even here

Even now

Your love surrounds me like a cloak


Even here

Where all that should be is emptiness

Your life flows more abundantly


I turned my face away from Yours

Enthralled by the magnetic pull of the flesh

As if it could satisfy the depth of my hungry soul

I should have reaped in kind

But for Your grace


Even now

I’m soaked in love

I’m drenched in grace

I’m in awe of You, Lord

And how much You love me


If being a son could be earned, Yours would not have been born

If my rights as a son could be withdrawn, then the Holy Spirit should never have come


You pursue me so relentlessly

Like I’m the only one in the room

Even here

Even now

I’m experiencing Your love again

Just like the first time

Even better
