But I have this against you: you have let go of the love you had at first. So remember the high point from which you have fallen. Change your hearts and lives and do the things you did at first. If you don’t, I’m coming to you. I will move your lampstand from its place if you don’t change your hearts and lives. … If you can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. I will allow those who emerge victorious to eat from the tree of life, which is in God’s paradise. (Revelation 2.4-5,7 CEB)
I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!
The fall from the height has left me stunned and hurting.
I knew better than to reach for what I knew could not possibly bear my weight.
But I let go of you and went for it anyway and so, here I am.
Even in my daze, I hear you asking me, “Did you learn anything from this?”
Clear my mind that I may recall clearly and resolve anew how you are to ever be my trust.
Help me up and renew my strength that I may climb with you again.
For I long to sit in the shade of the tree at the top of the mountain with you forever.
