Soul and Spirit

Soul and Spirit

The searching-truth poet asks with every word penned, “Is the soul awake?” assuming that all revelation finds epitome in that dominion. But the dead man knows the spirit must arise to life.

And you recognize that it teems with life when the sword of betrayal pierces the heart, and the spirit pauses before retaliation to consider the source of pain—to weigh reaction in light of how you’ve betrayed others and been forgiven.

No the soul isn’t big enough for this, but the spirit—awakened and trained by resurrection power—ever magnifies perception through love and wisdom by withstanding through grace the rigors of assault.
