Upper Room(s)

Be careful what you read; you might see it. ◆ Let me show you what I have seen…

Upper Rooms by Kelly Grace Collins. Water color pencil and artist pen. March, 2015. All rights reserved.

I awakened one morning to the joining of Psalm 104:13 and John 14:2:


“He waters the mountains from His palace…”
Psalm 104:13a

&

“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places…”
John 14:2a

 I was startled by a realization… These are the same place.

Or at least, they will be. Or even more wondrous.
We will live with our powerful Creator King.
All of the richly poetic Old Testament descriptions of where He dwells?
This will be our home.

Eight streams of water to represent His salvation,
twelve little people to represent all His believing ones.

Take heart, dear ones. The wonders of dancing with Him that await us are beyond all imaginings and surpass all that we endure here. These upper rooms abound, each where the knowing of Him is heavy like sweet mist. His light, presence, and delight covers the whole palace city.

the itch of the earth

~

 

 

can

you feel it

 

the itch of the earth

stillness through layers

aching for her Creator to come and rake through her sediments with strength

and sift her depths anew

 

can

you feel it

somewhere a stony vein through the center trembles

she felt His breath

an exhale slow with dew and weight

rocks lie in piles, trees drive roots deep

waters seep

all move with her movements in tides

it is not enough

 

listen to her restlessness

ever spinning ever still

 

waiting since–

the entry of white teeth

into the forbidden flesh

of a mysterious fruit,

grown of her virgin soils

 

creatures burrow…

can you feel it?

 

the itch of the earth
