The chalice sits
full to the brim
Cradled, precious cargo in my hands,
I glide gently towards the one partaking.
Sweet lips savor and
her tongue tenderly clears the glistening liquid
from her lips;
Ensuring she does not spill even the smallest drop of Peace and Love.
A glow, but not from the vessel, but rather its contents
Shows the way of eternal life.
Slowly, grace flows down my throat,
Teasing and changing the heart inside me … forever more.
Now I sit replete with peace like never before;
Love radiates from me
from coals inside me that cannot be extinguished.
I am protected forever.
The Presence felt like a radio,
blasting invisible but penetrating waves
Of love and peace;
To all who hear the voice of God.
I will never tune out to this voice,
Having tasted Love and Peace.
I am changed forever more.
I have Christ within
Peace and Love contained.
The cup of salvation I will take up,
and I will call upon the name of the LORD
She was being built up and walked in the fear of the Lord,
and with the consolation of the Holy Spirit she grew in numbers.
