In Him, am I

are you?
Who am I?
Have we forgotten
from where we came
from what we came
who brought us,
brings us still
face to face
with our sin
reminds us
we are far from
the perfectness
of the
Lord Jesus
yet He Loves Us
never ceasing

There is an ever increasing
reason for condemnation
He doesn't
condemn us

The Holy Spirit
the same
in Christ
in me

"Those of us who are
in Christ Jesus,
who do not walk
according to the flesh,
but according to the Spirit,
there is therefore
no condemnation." (Romans 8:1)
We have been set free
Jesus has proclaimed us
Not Guilty

Who are we?
You are a man in Christ
I am a woman in Christ

The enemy
cannot touch me
or you

I must remember
You must remember
know who you are
Stay focused on
The One
to whom you belong

Who said it was easy
Easy is looking down
being swallowed up
by fear of the unknown

Hard is seeking out God
at every turn
Hard is soaring
like an eagle
wings outstretched
when fear and anxiety
take precedence

Easy is burying
our heads in the sand
or under the bed blankets.

So fearful,
we forget
the Lord above
can do anything
and everything.

We must trust.
Must trust.
We are in Christ
Christ is in us

Struggles do not
Struggles remain
Sin remains
yet God
does not condemn us.

We are His
Only in Him
am I
Only in Him
are you

Abide in Him
to His Word
to the sounds of nature
the glorious splendor
of a sunrise
and a sunset
He is with us
He is but a breath away,
a step away
a hand reaching out
toward you.

His gaze is upon us
we must meet His gaze
and remain constant

Do not look away
He will bring us through
it all.
He is our guardian,
our protector,
our healer.

He is
the Great I Am
and in Him
am I.
