He Hasn’t Left

Do you get the feeling

that God’s Spirit leaves

when you are grumpy

sad

angry

 

when you do something wrong?

 

That He can’t really stand

to be around you

when you’re like that?

 

That He’ll come back

when you’re back to yourself?

 

The Holy Spirit dwells with you

just like your family

 

but the difference is

He doesn’t leave the room

in disgust

 

when you are out of sorts

 

He walks with you

 

always

 

and He will be that friend

that sticks closer than a brother

 

He will be the one

who doesn’t leave

 

ever

 

His voice might be harder to hear

when you’re a hot mess

 

but He hasn’t left

 

that’s His promise
