One Step Away

One Step Away

Be still and know I am God, Child.
Be still and know I Am.
Be still and know, Child. 
I Am.  One step away.
Be still, Child, be still.
Just be.
Because Be comes first, and,
Be gives birth to
Believe.   Behold.   Become, Child.
Be as in Beloved.
Be still and be loved, Child.
Be loved.
Be loved because I am Love, Child.
Be loved and love.
Be loved and love because I Am.
Only one step away.

I was inspired to capture these words after listening to Jason Upton share last night at The Father's House in Rochester, NY.  I am not sure if the evening was taped, but I'm hoping it will be posted eventually on The Father's House video page.
You can listen to Jason's song, "One Step Away," when you visit
I'm spilling these crumbs with Emily and friends today at Imperfect Prose.  Please join us--just one click away!  You will be blessed.  I promise.
