Beloved,
Jesus promises us a peace that surpasses our understanding. He says, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27). This peace comes to us in the Person of the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost (v. 26). This is the reality of Christ in us. As we learn to give Him place, He comes in His quietness and stillness, calming our souls as He fills us with His Unfolding Transcendence.
 
UNFOLDING TRANSCENDENCE
 
Transcendent One
Come in
Everlasting One
Come in
 
Ancient of days
Reveal Your ways
I am still
I am quiet
 
So I can know
Who You are
So far
Beyond earthly noise
 
I crave Your voice
Gentle and pure
No mixture
Of my own understanding
 
I’m just waiting
Like the dew drop
Yielded to fullness
I am formed
 
With no effort
To be anything
To go anywhere
I am there
 
My destiny clear
I can hear
Your voice
Singing my choice
 
So simple
So easy
So light
So bright
 
I just am
A loved man
I understand
Who You are
 
A star
A leaf
A bird
A word
 
Living everywhere
Holding the atmosphere
In Your arms
Never alarmed
 
You speak peace
That surpasses
That is everlasting
Beyond gates and doors
 
That have been closed
Beyond what I know
In natural light
Beyond limited sight
 
Beyond comprehension
Amidst earthly tensions
Captive apprehensions
Of the mind
 
Looking for release
Longing for peace
Lost simplicity
Languishing empty
 
Knowing too much
About endless possibilities
Trying to find ’me’
Planning and scheming
 
To satisfy dreaming
In the wrong realm
Can’t see eternity
In a tree
 
Or a squirrel
Or a train whistle
Can’t listen
To faith’s dance
 
Lost romance
With transcendence
Coming through
All things new
 
In pure light
Peace and quiet
Confidence and strength
Knowing Him
 
Letting Him in
As you wait
As you contemplate
He will appear
 
You will hear
The whispered sound
All around
Grace will abound
 
In all you see
You’ll recognize eternity
In the simple things
Coming from afar
 
Saying you are
Loved
By the Transcendent One
Your work is done
 
You can quit trying
Listen for the bird
Hear his word
Straight from heaven
 
Filling your atmosphere
Incline your ear
To amazing grace
In every place
 
Slow your pace
Let peace embrace
Your anxious soul
Let transcendence unfold
