The labor pains come
Bringing pressure with the joy
The waters roar around her
Yet she rest in the peace of His love
Hidden within the Tree of Life
Feeding on the Fruit of the Spirit
She rests; finding her breath
Connected to her Creator
As the pain of labor increases within
She holds fast through the pressure
Gripping the truth she knows in her heart-
The joy of what's to come
Trusting through every wave of pain
It will be worth it in the end
With every contraction she cries
Fighting her own fear with faith
Never losing her joy
Never letting go of hope
Remaining hidden and safe
Abiding in her nest
She sees the storm surround her
Bringing fear with the might of it's waves
She doesn't give in –
But feels the pressure increasing
Both around her, and within
One last contraction leaves her screaming
And as she screams, the Lion roars
The storm ceases –
And all is silenced
Her time has finally come
Beholding something new
Entrusted into her hands
She breathes, resting in the unity of her beloved
Her Creator; Her maker...
Her lion and her lamb.
