The State

A lie has speed, but truth has endurance. 
     ~ Edgar J. Mohn
By an act of faith, Enoch skipped death completely. “They looked all over and couldn’t find him because God had taken him.” We know on the basis of reliable testimony that before he was taken “he pleased God.” It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.
     ~ Hebrews 11:5-6
To be invisible,
to move and live and have
being in You.
To be pleased just
to be pleasing to You.
To let go of the looking for myself
trying to see where I fit in,
and know that I fit in You.
To stop trying to gain favor 
with anyone else- 
anyone else
but You.
To be content 
in whatsoever state I am in.
Let the state robes be 
Let the colors all be
Let the anthem be
Let that state always be
Because of Him,
