In And Out Of

2 Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.”

Take the winter,
Take the fall,
Take the leaves behind me
When I listen to the wind—
Take that smirk off your face,
Take away love from grace
And what do you get? Blame
The devil and the games he plays,
Get you up, up to a high mountain,
Flock to it all you nations to that high
Place called glory and worthy! If it don’t
Rain you got pain to deal with, the King
Is in town, He is near and here, who do
You fear? Take the seasons God and
The endless reasons we need you,
Take love from us and we will bury
Ourselves deep in the ground, deep
Without a sound, it’s a funeral, is God
Dead or is He alive? I read my own
Obituary—it reads dead while alive,
Did not live when he was alive,
Heart beats, heart bleeds, pushing
You out, pushing my agenda, Kingdom
Come inside of this world of mine,
She fears you, she hears you, those
Boys they speak around her all day
Long—where is mother, where is father?
Living water, God, ranting a little—where
Are we, world, are we ready, the seasons
Are in and out, are we ready for it—
For the power, for the authority,
For the clarity, for the word to
Rest heavy on me, for the Prophet
In me to take serious what I see,
What I fear, what I really want to hear!
I am ready, ready to listen, ready to hear
