Rebirth

jesus'glory

Rebirth
It tears at my flesh,
My soul is reborn
Into a world of light.
No more running out of the night.

I thank you Gracious Lord again
For this glory of new life.
It runs downhill and up
In endless joyful flight!

 

I’ve talked before about dreams God has given me in the past. They’re always so vivid in color and details and so beautiful. I had another one a few nights ago. I was walking with Jesus down a street, and the sense of joy was so overwhelming. He was sharing His joy with me. It was fantastic. Always is. Anyway, we were walking down the street. I had sort of blondish hair, my hair is naturally dark although at my age I’m almost completely grey, and I was dressed very casually, more bohemian. We were walking down the street. People were walking by, and we were just sharing His joy with them, talking to them. It was a great dream.
My resolution for the beginning of this new year is to be reborn. The type of rebirth that Christ told Nicodemus about, to be born of water and the Spirit. I feel a need for this. I was born into darkness from which He has saved me. I pray you could get to know your Savior better this year also. He really is fantastic, beautiful and loves you so overwhelmingly! In Christ’s name Amen. Praise God!!

 

Imagine!

artforImagine

Imagine

Throne, glistening,
Unapproachable
Glory, brilliant light,
Beauty, colors of infinity

Sitting in Your place
Love, forgiveness
implanted on your face
desperate need at your feet

screaming out your name
transcendent above
this noise, chaos,
darkness, ignorant rebellion

a universe held within
your hand
no longer wishing to
follow your commands

One spirit asks,
You would leave all
This!
Remember their past

We adore you, Lord
Do not leave
We will do anything
Your sovereign will to please

But, this perpetual glory
Cannot be restrained.
I cannot ignore their grief
Their sorrow or their pain

The multitudes acquiesce
And bow
Ready to submit their wills
Left only to guess

So He lays aside, removes
A crown
Glistening, reflecting each
Star, lights which abound

Only in this eternity of
Ecstasy, bliss,
Adoration, worship.
Giving His Father one last
Kiss

One last touch of a
Father’s hand
As they prepare to face the
Agony of this plan

Silence falls, all heaven
Stops
Wondering, hoping
As He bends to drop
Below.

So, with shepherds, beasts
Within a barn’s dirty stall
A Savior releases glory
taking up the saving,
redeeming His creation
from its fall.

Puddles

artforpuddles

 

Puddles

Human puddles
On the ground
Hoping, waiting
Longing to be found

Downward, fingers reach
To stir
Moving, rippling
empowering to occur

Unusual things, miracles
So to speak
Causing, giving strength
even to the lost and weak

Strength flows down
Into this wet ground
My puddle moves, flows
Dare I give voice, a sound

His hand pulls upward
I rise
New in spirit, waiting
To be apprised

New life is born
To walk in His glory
So do not be afraid
To tell your story

Of love, glory
Holiness
Given just to you
Speak your words
Tell of Christ’s rescue
allow the others
to once again be born anew!

May God bless your day!!

7 Fatal Flaws of Moral Relativism — Help Me Believe

Here is a good article that exposes moral relativism as self-defeating. Of course, I do not agree with the “divine command theory” approach to morality that is proposed by the author, but the critique of moral relativism was worth sharing. The seven fatal flaws of moral relativism | Wintery Knight

Beauty!!

beautyofGod_1

 

Beauty
Before beginnings
Of time, space, energy
Matter
Only heavenly ecstasies
Existed

Even so You decided
To create
Your own eternity
Written
In fleshly forms

After You spoke
Light appeared
Your breath touched the
Ground
Dust arose and we
Walked

Up, rise up
Live, enjoy my
Presence
Stay within my boundaries
Of love

Then time shattered
As we rejected You,
Rebelled,
Lost our place in
Your paradise
But

You were not finished
With us
You came, died
Took our place
On that cross
So a waiting universe,
holding its Breath,
could see
Your Beauty

May God Bless Your Day. Praise God!!

Revival!!

Revival #2

Shivers, down
My spine, back of
The body
Starting slowly
Gently
Only quivers at first.

Words whispered
Unseen, out of air
Into my empty ears
Beginnings of
Heart songs of Paradise

I have known you
From days of old,
My youth
Felt your presence
Only a skin’s depth
Away in a blue sky.

Power unseen but
Spirit felt
Always on the move
Looking, seeking
To save & bring home
Every lost child

Your voice speaks
At first, then roaring
Coaxing, next pushing,
Bring in the rest
This may be our test
We are not the only ones,
Alone here in His love

Beginnings, urgings
From above, a fire,
Slow trickles at first
Then a volcano trembling
Desiring, waiting to explode
To give us what we need
If we will only implant our desires
within its will

Waiting to create a deep
Burning, this passion,
Within the chest and soul
To become what
He died for,
A Holy family

Lost ones restored to
Spread, tell,
His story of rebirth
Placed once again
Within His womb
Of Love

So, let us be
Different, from
An insane world
Leaning only on
Its own bleak weakness to survive

I pray for Revival in the American churches. Praise God!!

Wondrous December!!

Couldn’t resist a poem for the first day of the month of December, Christ’s birth month. Praise God!!

Wondrous Night

Wondrous night
Holy Night
Twinkle of a star
Led men to the
Wonder of a king’s
Bed and might

Sleeping in a barn
A stall
Filled with animal
Wetness and breath
Holiness to save us all

That star still shining
Calls us home
Dulled now by lights
Man-made and hung
Without thought for the one
who saves us from being alone

In the darkness
Raise your head
Look upward to a star
Which still points
To the One who left
A Throne to lie in that bed

Of straw and poverty
Of pain and a torturous death
He loved until his heart
Broke, stopped
Returning home but not until
He gave His final breath

For us, you and I
Do not forget
Look up still to see
A King enthroned
In glory, above that star
Whose life and death
paid your final dark debt
