Unstable Ground

I walk on unstable ground.
No step the same as the one before
yet while daunted, I trust Christ who leads me on.

I journey through twisted worlds,
amidst Christ’s kairos of continuity, 
in the thick of human discontinuity.

The wave of His Kingdom
does not wait for human acquiescence
nor agreement from elite powers.

He moves in resurrection power,
redeeming denial, defeats despair -
restoring sight to see possibilities.

Christ’s reality breaks my chains of ideology,
each breath disrupting -  renewing.
Hope dawns each day, every season.

And I encouraged in heart,
challenged in mind, with joyful soul,
choose to walk on unstable ground.
