Devoiding the Void

Devoiding the Void

A child is born. 
The mother stood in awe
The father swelled with pride
Something precious birthed from 
crannies invisible to the naked eye
A miracle!
Family rejoices, neighbors coos at 
the fragile being lying in the cradle
Many exclaimed at the beauty of this 
folds of flesh
The beginning of a new life!

Angels’ delight is mixed with trepidation 
at another born with a choice between 
good and evil
Devils scoff at this being with an untapped 
capacity above that of angels 
Made a little lower than God, the placement 
of this creature puts demons far down the 
ladder of hierarchy
The beginning of a new race!

As each day unfolds
Complexity becomes glaring to this 
creature who entered this sphere without 
a care in the world
Something is missing!
A gnawing, a dissatisfaction
There is a vacuum deep down somewhere 
Like the bottomless pit without an end
This creature is a multifaceted being 
no doubt!

The quest for awareness presents 
an opportunity 
The trickster grabbed the opportunity 
to peddle his wares to this unwary being
"Chase money," he says, but there 
was no fulfillment
“Sex?” That creates even more emptiness
“Power, fame, and influence?” 
Why do these make you insatiable?
 Littered with unmet expectations

A man thinks others have it better 
Ignorant of the cosmetics disguising 
the emptiness within those perfect 
Many believe life is unfair to them, 
growing up is a trap?
But the Creator certified His creation 
as good, was that a lie?
No! He made all things good

Man is inherently entwined with 
his Creator
Separation brings emptiness
A body! A Soul! A Spirit! 
The tripartite nature of man
God is a Spirit! 
The spirit of man yearns for 
communion with God
Nothing in this clime would bring 
satisfaction, only His abiding presence

People wonder how Christians are 
able to retain cheerfulness amidst 
problems, peace amidst chaos
Waking up with joy bursting forth 
from their hearts each morning!
A deep conviction of better things 
to come
Peace unattached to something 
Their satisfaction is from being 
“one” with God
He fills up that vacuum with His 

Come home to the Father today!
