Alive in Me

By Susie Teramura

 

Your word, God,

It’s becoming

Precious to me.

It’s like You said,

It’s coming

Alive,

And doing its work

In me.

The work You

Intended it to do.

 

Clearing out lies,

And setting up shop,

Cutting to the quick,

Down to the bone and marrow,

To the core of me,

It’s telling me,

Truth.

 

It’s telling me

That you hear me,

You see me,

That I’m your

Precious possession,

 

That you are for me,

Not against,

That you have a plan

For my life

That’s good and prosperous,

 

That in the end

You will come and get me.

You have a place for me

With you,

And a name chosen just for me,

 

That in the mean time

You will never leave me,

That you, God, are my father,

The one who protects me,

Standing with me,

When I need to be brave,

Wiping my tears,

When I am falling apart.

Giving me gifts never ending.

 

Your word it’s

Sinking in

Deep,

Sticking like honey,

 

Healing the hurting places

Making me whole,

And brave and beautiful,

Just like you planned.

 

Each day it’s growing

In me,

Like a garden,

Life coming,

Right out of dirt.

 

Your word, God,

It’s becoming

Precious to me

It’s like You said,

It’s coming

Alive

And doing its work

In me.

 

 

Isaiah 55:11

“..so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

 

Hebrews 4:12

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

 

Mathew 4:4

“Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

  1. Susie,
    How I love this today because I can so relate! His words are sinking deep in me too, and I am saying them into the dark, over and over, so I can let his words shape me. Sticking like honey . . . . I love that imagery — his words become sweetness to our souls! Thank you for always lifting me up when I stop by here, friend! 🙂

  2. Yes Susie, how good this is, how good — that’s what we need, God’s Word coming to life in us – overpowering and wiping out the deceptions – this speaks to what God is doing in me

  3. “Sinking in Deep, Sticking like honey, Healing the hurting places”
    Susie, your words paint such a satisfying picture for me today. His Word sticking and healing my inner wounds.
    And a side note, I learned that certain types of honey are used to heal physical wounds.
