Divine Adoption

My identity is in Christ.
Not by vain proclamation,
Nor by abstract assumption;
But by divine adoption
Through sacrificial salvation;
By the grace of a loving Father,
By the obedience of His almighty Son:
Now and for eternity,
I am a child of God

Breath of Fire

written in response to a dVerse Poets Pub challenge – to write a Quadrille – 44 words – articulating a ‘breeze’

With a sudden sound
Like the baritone of an irrepressible wind
The persistent sigh of a perpetual breeze
God sang and His breath filled the place
Gifts of fire separated and came to rest
Unifying power and a unifying language
Spoken in ultimate love

– inspired by Acts 2:1-6
