That Beautiful Apple



“That Beautiful Apple”

Vacation right where you are

Be still and close your eyes

Escape the hurry, feel the peace.

Tour a destination called Improvise.




You’re invited by Him who knows you best,

Slow down with God and be still

You’ll find the optimal place to stay

It’s been avowed the Inn is Tranquil 



Inside this cosset, this haven

Human words can hardly convey

The communion and the intimacy

No worth could ever outweigh



The answers are there in the abiding.

They won’t be found any other place.

What happens in those private moments

Transcends both earth and space.



Only you and God can enter

This secret place inside of you.

A place to lay bare all your soul

You‘ll find it to be tried and true.



The wants and needs you went in with

That have troubled and vexed your soul.

Will be heard and confirmed from the One

Who wants you so much to be whole.



Sometimes we want a King on the Hill.

A mighty Ruler that protects on all sides

A Sovereign who steps in - stops all evil!

Who negates the will and overrides.



But He’s not Santa - He’s God the Creator

We’re not His toys, puppets or elves.

Since this world was created as a perfect fit.

What’re the outcome, we’ve done it ourselves

God’s ways are high above our ways

The human mind cannot comprehend

The power of His love to do His will

On this earth to save and to mend



So the sharing between you and your Father

Will give understanding - peace that is true

It’s in your abiding, as a child on the lap

Of the Father who delights in you,




As you find solace in this sanctuary,

You’ll find transformations in your heart

The concepts that seemed so hard before

Are being replaced with what sets you apart.




As the caterpillar inside the cocoon,

You are lovingly swaddled in growth

To develop that new creature in you

Growing your wings is God’s fervent oath.




You will not come out, not you

But truly, the you you’ve wanted to be

You will be that beautiful apple,

That hasn’t fallen far from the Tree.

Not much to add to it, just that God is faithful and desires to create in you the 'you' you were meant to be....because when you come to God, that is just the beginning.



Ephesians 3:20
Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
