From Emptiness To Fullness - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

From out of the depth of emptiness
His hand reached out in Divine Love,

My soul to ransom from its death,
With mercy show the way above.

He led me to my crucifixion
Of self and doubt and blinded pride.

To die there in my Calvary
With my Lord and Savior by my side.

Without my cross there is no filling
No Holy Spirit there residing,

My Self is slain there on that hill
For God, He did the resurrecting.

He cannot fill what He cannot have
Nor change the heart He cannot mold.

As the way is absolute surrender,
My life is no longer mine to hold.

He gave me His greatest proof of Love
His fullness in me through Jesus Christ.

With His Holy Spirit as my witness,
I'm bought with a Ransom, a great Price.

'I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ Who lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me.'

    Amen, amen! That's all I can say :)

    Indeed, you have been crucified with Christ, and you will also rise with Him :)
