God in Me

God of the storm
is living in me…

The infinite power,
all consuming, overwhelming.
A furnace of energy where the
thunder is stored,
and where the lightening is born.

Resides in me?


Who makes moons that draw oceans;
stars to navigate by;
Whose vastness who can comprehend,
Whose footstool is the sky
Is contained by me?


Who gave his only Son
Love that can only be measured by His suffering
Hanging on the cross
The cross ‘between the trees’

Dying for me…..

So that he might be resurrected, so that I might be redeemed

That he would dwell in me?

Oh Great God

Who encloses and indwells me
With the heartbeat of the blessed Trinity.
Whose river of living water
arises from eternity.

Never let me the forget the truth of your presence.
For he who seeks you only without
Fails to know the rivers of delight
Which flow from our innermost selves.

Oh Great God

Consume me, fill and transform me
Not only with head knowledge
But with a heart forever bonded
In relationship, in union with

You – Father, Holy Spirit

Son of God.

"In just a little while I will be gone from the world but I will still be present with you.  For I will live again - and you will too.  When I come back to life again, you will know that I am in the Father, and you in me, and I in you."  John 14:19-20
