Turning 25 today has reminded me of the motion that is time, but it has also brought me back to something I wrote in Spring 2014: 'How Old is the Essence of You'. This is what inspired 'Infinite'.
How old is the essence of you?
How old is the essence of you!
The age of a spirit, it cannot be measured.
I came from a place, boundless of time
From glory, and
Back to glory will I return.
To the glory of the Eternal, Uncreated One.
"Let no man despise you of your youth!" They say.
But what did You say?
I dance, I revel in You, and
For that sacred moment
I realise, unawares
I am nothing but a spirit.
A spirit set free!
A spirit borne witness to.
I am known; I long to know
For the glory of One I came
For Him and Him alone to be exalted!
For that intimacy to be deeper
For me to understand just how loving You are!
For it not to be taken for granted,
It was all I had known, now it is all I know.
