2015.02.01: unpossesed

Jesus rebuked him and said, “Quiet! Come out of him!” Mk 1:25

forty days and forty nights
not enough rain to soften
hardened human hearts

the flow of water
carving canyons in hard hearts
through passage of time

yet the Word of God
like the works of his hand
falling on deaf ears

always needing one
miracle more than the last
to renew the faith

until that fateful day
when i first heard the words
“Quiet! Come out of him.”

then the world left me
no more idols and demons
only peace and quiet

be still
be still and know
be still and know that I AM God
