Desire Transcendent

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:



Desire Transcendent

A word that fills my heart with joy
because it represents something more, something awesome,
something beautiful that is found within You

What are Your dreams, Abba
What are Your desires
What do I get to do to be a part of all that You have

There is substance found inside of dreams and hope and faith and love
and I want to find this substance
and live with You in the midst of it all

You are beautiful
You are good
and all Your ways are perfect

Your dreams, the plans of Your heart
are always for my good

Your desires, the substance of who You are
and the longings of Your heart
penetrate my being
and fill me with light and life and love

You let me feel what You feel, G-d
You ask me to talk to You
about Your desires, Your longings, the beauty of Your plans,
to bring forth justice, truth and righteousness

You tell me how much You love Your Son,
How much He loves You,
How much You want me to share in this love

This is the dream
the knowledge of the essence of Your heart,
the knowledge of the essence of the affections of the transcendent,
the knowledge of that which is good and righteous and true
that is only found in You

Your heart is good,
You are always good
Your ways always true and righteous

Your ways are higher than mine
Your thoughts greater than mine

You are good and You’ve drawn me into this goodness,
this hope, this dream transcendent
that will bring forth righteousness one day soon
