Spirit Of Life

Ruach,

You model the feminine spirit for me.

Restraint and control,

a force to be reckoned with.

Soft, gentle, and meek

to break bars of iron.

Fierce empathy, compassion, and mercy

to cover the weak and protect the vulnerable.

Quick to follow, able to lead,

standing firm in paths of righteousness and truth.

Powerful, subtle, wild, true,

Spirit you are a mystery,

as soft as pure, silken waters

and baby’s breath,

as unknowable and terrifying as black ocean swells

and lightning storms, tornados brewing.

You’re woven into me now,

resurrecting this dead soul to life.

Awaken every part of me,

to your intimate revelation and knowing,

your gentle whispers of comfort and counsel,

and your words of life.

I love you Spirit.

Amen.
