SoCS: In This Joint

What is this joint,

where I sacrifice?

It’s barren, lonely, dark

What is this place,

where I walk?

The path of crushing pain

Why am I here?

What have I done, my friends

to deserve this horrid end?

Have I not loved you enough?

Not forgiven you enough?

I thought I kept you well fed.

Yet, here I am.

In this joint, this Calvary,

I spend my final hours,

alone and with bretheren.

Eating, hanging out,

walking in a garden

at the foot of a mount.

I am sad in this place

that I shall be betrayed and denied

and carry your burdens.

Abba has made it so.

He sees the broken world

and wants to save soul and flesh.

As do I.

So, I will go now.

To walk the final steps,

endure unspeakable agony

and sacrifice for dear Abba.

For you.

For all.

What is this joint that I’ll die in and rise to?

It is forgiveness.

Grace.

Faith.

Hope.

Peace.

Love.

I will love you always,

in your house and mine

and see you one day

at the foot of my Father,

in the garden of heaven.


Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.

Just go with the flow.

Like a babbling brook or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cheek.” Use it as a noun or verb. Have fun!

      Thanks John. We’re supposed to get rain and snow on Sunday and Monday, so no problem staying in here. Have a happy Easter!

    Imagining what it would be like through the eyes of Jesus draws us closer. What a wonderful perspective you’ve brought to us … divinely inspired. Thank you!
