It’s You

It’s You


It’s the journey to you and from you

It’s the journey with and without you

It’s the journey in you and amid you

It’s You.


The way you lead and linger,

Prompting, holding, surrounding,

You wait for me to discover

It’s You.


Your absence and presence

make no difference to your encircling

For you are, and 

It’s all about You.


You wait for me to catch up

Or wait for when I will wait too,

It’s the leap-frog leap of faith,

It’s You.


Where can I go from your presence?

Where can I hide from your love?

Where else is there but where

It’s You?


You surround me with birdsongs of beauty

You encompass me with winsomeness

You embody the imaginative impulse

For it is You my soul adores.

It’s You, R.H. Foerger, March 19, 2020

About R.H. (Rusty) Foerger

As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of the role of elders today “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life” (Dr. James M. Houston). I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to: *decipher the enigma of our worth *rescue from the agony of prayerlessness *integrate spiritual friendship.

    Had my Bible open and was reading Psalm 139 when I opened my phone and read this. How I love when God is patient with me and tells me He loves me twice. Merry Christmas!

    • …and I love how often God does this; providence, holy coincidences, perfect timing to get through to us. Bypassing our armour/obstacles, or simply seeping into the space we have been hoping He’d enter – Our Abba answers the question “where can I hide from your love?” with “no where.”
