I Understand You to Be

Sight unseen,
the mystery of Your word.
I feel its truth
in the marrow of my bone.
You are the essence of life.

I have never witnessed,
nor walked in sandals
such as Yours.
I have been told
and submitted my heart
to trust.

I understand You to be
more than doctrine,
more than a supreme
dictator,
demanding my allegiance.

I understand You to be
more than creator,
more than the one
who breathes life
into my clay.

I understand You to be
a promise
come unto flesh
and the lover of my soul.

Sight unseen,
I take Your spoken sylables
into my heart,
where You can nurture my spirit
and guide
my every step.
