John 14:17 New English Translation (NET Bible)

17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because it does not see him or know him. But you know him, because he resides with you and will be in you.


Here I sit by myself ... but I am not alone.

Looking up and writing down ... things I don’t understand.

Reaching out with both hands ... grasping for some knowledge

Holding on ... not let go of mysteries unplanned.


1st Cor. 3:16

“Do you not know, that you are God’s temple

and that God’s Spirit dwells within you?”


It is hard to understand most scriptures in the bible.

Some of them or really most are impossible to share.

This one based in love ... seems total detrimental.

To my frame built on shame ... that Holiness should be there.


Will the Holy Spirit rebuilt this temple mine

to have a place to dwell without shame or grief?

He groans intercessions all night and every day

to The Lord Who made whole in spite of my deceit.


Will God only dwell in places ... so prepared by Him?

Is His Temple there ... to be never touched by man?

Is that why I fail ... in my lack of understanding

because I keep adding to Grace ... parts of myself, the man?
