God-Fleshed

"... the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us ...." John 1:14

Father,

Jesus,
Your Son,
Is no illusion:
He is real!

Yes,
He dances and sings at Cana,
He tears on the death of Lazarus,
He smiles at the soft faces of children,
He angers at hypocrites,

Above all,
He bleeds love on the Cross.

Oh, so real.

Yes,
He is the One who strengthens;
He is the One who joys;
He is the One who heals.

Oh, so real.

Yes,

He is Wisdom
Fleshed;
He is Power
Fleshed;
He is Salvation
Fleshed;
He is Grace
Fleshed;
He is Glory
Fleshed;
He is Truth
Fleshed;
He is Life
Fleshed --
Risen Life.

In a word,
He is God-Fleshed.

Yes, a Mystery,
But, oh so real.

Father,
I pray --
I will visit with Jesus;
I will meet with Jesus;
I will sit with Jesus;

Then,
I will gaze on Him
With the deepest knee-bent gratitude
For the Gift of Him.

Tears of joy came to my eyes while reading your poem. It's all so wonderful. My mind is too small to comprehend, but we'll be with Him to visit, meet and worship completely some day.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
