These Waves (a poem)

ocean_waves

i see these waves
and think of Your greatness,
i feel the wind
and think of Your presence

the blunt force of both
causes me to stand in awe:
mouth open
arms spread
eyes shut
head back
feet ready to move

and i am lifted up
to meet You,
and i am breathed into
coming back to life,
and i am struck dead
by the awesomeness of You

Jesus,
You are the force of the wave
beating against me,
You are the boldness of the wind
moving me out,
You are the stillness of the sky
drawing me near

Jesus,
i see You
i feel You
i experience You:
awake me
until i am You.
