don't let the world

From the April 17, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


“don’t let
the world around you
squeeze you
into its
own mould” *

no
caricatures
here

no skirting
the edges

circling
the wagons

making the shoe
appear to fit

your life is
without
edges

uncompressible
uncontainable
in its

relevance

brilliance

resilient invincibility

You—

child of the Most High

“hiding place from the wind”
river in a dry place
“shadow of a great rock in a
weary land” **

divine configuration
heavenly revelation
hallowed benediction 

unfettered, cherished,

child of God

Joni Overton-Jung

*Romans 12:2 (J. B. Phillips, New Testament in Modern English).
**Isaiah 32:2.
