Have you?

Look at where you are standing.

This is the place where seen and unseen are ordained to reconcile.
This dirt is sacred.

Right here, God spelled love in the dust with His fingertip,
remove your sandals in the presence of His signature
Look at where you are standing.

Preceded by the silence between testaments,
interrupted by fists slamming against cold altars,

waiting.

And what words cannot express
when the architect of existence crawls about on infant legs
look at where you are standing.

This is the place where logic and paradox embrace.
Where Lord and suffering merge;
Right here, He determined to be broken.

Grace costs so much to be given so freely
and yet somehow we are considered worth the expense,
look at where you are standing.

Right here at the place
where he determined
to be broken.

~Ayinde Russell


Think about it. =)
