Despite the deaths that decay the depths of my soul,

 

Besides the bites from bits of borderline bane,

 

Aside from the audacious aspects of animality,

 

That seem to so define our society,

I believe,

I have got to believe that there is good.

That the sun rises and sun sets as part of a superior scheme,

That as the Earth pulses, my heart pulses along with it,

That there is thorough, thoughtful, profound meaning,

In the mundane, the disdain and the heart pain

That we all face day to day, month to month,

Year to year and decade to decade.

That this cascade of unpaid debts of lives half lived

Has purpose.

I believe,

I have got to believe that I have purpose

I have got to believe that there is purpose,

Because I have been told,

Because I have read,

Because I believe,

That it is good.

I believe that He looked at what He made and He said,

That it is good.

An Awesome Authority

Made me in the likeness of a deity

Made an expanse to echo his essence,

And with everything so echoing his intricacy

How could it not be awesome?

How could Earth not be awesome?

How could life, I, myself, you, yourself, not be awesome?

If I reflect refractions, mere rays, pieces, parts or fragments,

If Earth reflects refractions, mere rays, pieces, parts or fragments,

If Life, therefore, reflects refractions, mere rays, pieces, parts or fragments

Of something so great that every superlative cannot compete to define,

How could one argue against the awesomeness we are?

Despite the deaths that decay the depths of my soul,

Besides the bites from bits of borderline bane,

Aside from the audacious aspects of animality,

That seem to so define our society,

I believe,

I have got to believe that we are and life is awesome,

Because the One who weaves the webs of our lives

Is Awesome.

Great in Power

Mighty to save

Gracious to love

And Awesome.

I believe,

I have to to believe these things,

Because belief has brawn,

And faith has force,

And I can believe it into being.

With my faith I can move mountains

I can turn tides and I can defy death.

With my faith I can bring the Kingdom come

Because I carry the Kingdom.

As the Earth pulses, my heart pulses

And the Kingdom beats along besides

And the Kingdom is here

And the Kingdom is now

And the Kingdom is coming

And the Kingdom is Awesome.

There is more Awesome than can be anticipated

Because there is an abiding abyss of Awesome,

Beginningless, Endless, and Awesome.
