The music remains indelibly etched deep within my soul

A fresh anointing falls from heaven and covers me mind, body, and soul.

I am completely enveloped in a cascading whirlwind of love.

It brings an abundance of joy, peace, kindness, and gentleness.

Out of this powerful whirlwind comes the most peaceful presence I’ve ever known.

It glides past me, spins around me, soars above me, and passes through me.

It intertwines itself within me, intercalating every fiber of my being.

I experience the totality of its righteousness and sacredness.

I hear its soft whispers, as it beckons me nearer.

It knows me by name, and calls me its sweet child.

I feel its warm touch, as it lightly kisses my cheek.

It listens as I speak, but knows the words I’ve left unsaid.

Then it wipes away my tears as it caresses me in its arms.

It heals my yesterdays, that I may have happier tomorrows.

It removes all bitterness from my core, and I taste the sweet sanctity of its blessed holiness.

It restores my soul, as it provides me with the fullness of its grace, mercy, and forgiveness.

When I close my eyes and look beyond myself, I can see its face.

It is pure beauty, pure wonder, and pure magnificence.

Its glorious light is brilliant, marvelous, and amazing.

Then it takes me by the hand and lifts me off my feet.

Our spirits join together as we twirl around, dancing about in unison.

It opens my heart and pours into me the very essence of itself.

It becomes one with me and I become one with it.

And I am re-created in its image, so that its face might be reflected in my own.

Once the dancing ends, I am tenderly placed back on my feet.

But the music remains indelibly etched deep within my soul.

And I am forever transformed by the Spirit of God.
