Inspired by Revelation 20:12; 21:18
History is deep sediment
melted together past telling
except where patterns repeat,
burn through to surface—
Sodom is Nineveh is Babylon is Rome.

There are those who regret
but don’t repent—
ears stopped tight,
hearts hard as bone,
senses dead to pleasure,

but your remorse throbs
with bottomless accusation.
When you reach breaking point,
break open to God.
He will read you,

make you as transparent glass—
understood and understanding.
Distinct yet enveloped.
Enduring and malleable
as pure gold.

Inspired by readings in the Come, Follow Me manual for December 23-29
