Five Minute Friday-Overcome

When the Spirit Falls…

I feel the rise of the uneasy,

an internal fires flames seeking air.

The tingling of His presence,

up my spine and through my hair,

..down my arms and to my toes.

The heat has overcome-through my heart and to my soul.

I see the light encircling,

illumination all around.

Blindness by it’s beauty,

Deafness by it’s silent sound.

The light has overcome

The darkness launched to the unknown.

Captivity now captive,

No longer a place I know.

Freedom comes in full acceptance.

Love surely did come down.

I feel His Holy being,

in this place and all around.

The Spirit comes upon me,

My body shivers in certainty.

Love fell to overcome,

the deepest fears it found in me.

Ephesians 4:8 (NRSV)

Therefore it is said, “When he ascended on high he made captivity itself a captive;
he gave gifts to his people.”
