Spirit of God

We cannot

Perceive God

With our senses

He is invisible

Though he walks

Among us

 

St. John 4:24

“God is a Spirit…”

 

St. John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…”

The Spirit Comes Full Circle

On reflection of my life
I start here
Where I am now

According to the Bible,
If the creation story holds true
Which it will,
We can all trace our line
Back to the garden
To Adam and Eve
The first man and first woman
The only two never born
And these two are one

But further back
Before Eve
There was only Adam
Yet she was with him
A part of him
A rib, some say

So she was present
With him
Before she was taken
From him
And made to appear
Separate from him

Before that
There was no Adam
Only the dust of the ground
Out of which the man was formed
And became a living soul
After receiving the breath of life

Before that there was light

Before that there was
Heaven and earth
And God who created them
What is seen and what is not
The form and the formless
The particle and the wave
And these two are one

And between the creation
Of heaven and earth
And the light
Was the spirit of God
She who was with him
In the beginning
Before the dividing time
And that is where we are now

Genesis 1:2

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Eternal

What appears to be is not

For it is only temporary

What cannot be seen is real

And is eternal

The formless does not change

Only the form it takes on

 

How can we measure

The depth or length or width

Of the formless

Which has no boundaries

 

When the form falls away

There remains the formless

What we cannot see

The eternal

The Spirit of God

 

II Corinth 4:18

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
