Piercing my Affections

I'm trying something new this year, working to memorize 24 verses in 2017. One thing I've learned about myself is that if I can connect to a deeper place in my brain, rather than just surface memorization, I can retain things much better. So to correspond with my memorization, I'm studying each section of the verse as well: commentaries, Hebrew/Greek translations, footnotes. I'm trying to meditate bit by bit...and it really does help me!

My verse for the end of February is 1 John 1:5 (NLT); "This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all." I've split it up into smaller study portions: This is the message | we heard from Jesus | and now declare to you | God is Light | and there is no darkness in him at all.

I'm learning many new things, and it's so exciting! I love learning about the Word. And today I was inspired to write a short poem based on some of the definitions I found on Blue Letter Bible.

The section was GOD is LIGHT. These words pack a huge punch and say so much! (I will admit, I was caught a little off guard with the sheer volume of reading I could do on three words!) While I don't write poetry that often, it is a joy for me to create this way. I hope you enjoy!



{piercing my affections | a poem}
____________________________

Rays of Light piercing my affections.
In all brilliance, 
emanating from Elohim, 
from Jehovah.

The Light shines from Divinity, 
manifesting His unity, monism, self-existence.
His immutability, eternity, universality, almighty power.
His infinite knowledge, creative power, absolute holiness.
His righteousness, faithfulness, love, mercy and truthfulness.

With eyes to see this, form and color.
Exceeding in His counsels, interests, things due Him.
A delicacy that defies the odds and overtakes the dark.

Inextinguishable is God-Light.
Ever-growing, my affections.
