Will you deny Me? (Heh, no, no I don’t think I will . . . .)

Will you deny Me?
In the dark hours of the early morning,
In the quiet spaces of your day,
In the busy moments snatched here and there,
When you come back into My embrace
When you rest your head where it belongs,
When you place your soul in My capable hands,
Will you deny Me?
As your heart is filled with My loving,
As your body is filled with My breath,
As your mind is caught up, and your very spirit infused with My presence.
I have loved you
Not for what you can give to Me
Not for what you can show to others
Not for the names that you call Me
I have loved you
For you are a balm to My being
You are warmth and wonder and joy
Do you think We, too, are not moved by hearts reaching out?
Do you think We have all that We possibly need, that We cannot need or want more?
Do you think Us so easy to love that We do not experience fear, hesitation, uncertainty?
Have We not been abandoned, again and again by those professing to Love Us?
Will you deny Me?
Flow with Me.
Ride My waters where they carry you.
Come out to the open sea, where it is safe.
Do not deny Me
I am fluid, I am expansive, I can be troubling
But I am Yours, and I will keep you safe.
Will you deny Me?

    This is absolutely heart-rending, and (up until the last few lines) very universally relevant to those of us with close deity relationships. (Especially when said deities decide to, um…share more of Themselves with us.)

    Not a godspouse, or even have a relationship with a god, but that’s a beautiful poem, and I thank you for posting it.
