This conundrum of the believer, an enigma
This puzzling perplexity that challenges the most enlightened:
Within one body both perfection and imperfection dwell perfectly
Totally weak yet the power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives within
Having the mind of Christ but only knowing in part and understanding in part
Seeing some many things with absolute clarity while still many other things cannot be seen at all
Standing confidently firm yet cautiously careful of stumbling
Rich beyond measure in abstract poverty
Empty and full
Repentance of the righteous
Reaching out to grasp yet hold on to nothing
Hearing messages ringingly loudly in absolute, total silence
Standing on the mountain stepping into God's call to valleys ahead
Filled to overflowing with love yet longing and ever so heartbroken
Joyful tears in the light of darkness
These are the riddles that evade solutions.
Conundrums, enigmas, puzzling perplexities
The mystery of all mysteries.
Christ is in us NOW yet Christ is still our hope of glory.
