Rock Heart

“The LORD your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”  Zeph 3:17
 
 
 
Cold, hard
fist clenched heart
wrapped in its dark self.
Closed.
 
Nothing can pry
open
the steely fingers.
Unprised,
unmoved,
unrelenting,
mute.
 
Your Word,
Your song,
soft,
calling
persistent,
love soaked.
 
The interior,
warmed,
moved,
spark kindled,
song filled.
 
Heart unwrapping,
unwrapped.
Opening, opened.
Eternal lifesong filled.
Christ bought.
