Light!!

Light
Beams, thick shafts
This light
So clear, illuminating
The air
Around me

Enclosed, surrounded
In the middle
I stand
Inside this pure essence
Of light

I look to see, observe
feel
Raise a hand
I too am made
Of light

Mingling, becoming,
Blending
Transfixed, held by,
Composed of the
ephemeral Light

From overhead.
Until
I join, melt into
The material falling
From above

No longer separate,
Joined now,
Together with,
No longer the I
Of me

Only the us
Of we, together
I stand
Within the essence of
You

Every human on this planet has an inner need to be joined with our Creator. We are made of the same eternal spiritual material as our Father. We get ourselves into trouble when we go trying to meet that need in the wrong places: sex, alcohol, drugs, ego, temporary pleasure. Only a close, intimate relationship with Him can give the fulfillment, joy and contentment that only He can give. Praise God!!

A Key and a Lock

We were created by Love, through Love and for Love’s own pleasure. God created us because He was so full of goodness it could not be contained. So, He wanted to share all of Himself with someone. God is a giver and literally needs nothing from us. He already lives in perfect harmony with God the Son and God, the Holy Spirit. I believe writer/pastor Timothy Keller called it their dance of perfect harmony in one of his books.

God is the key, we are the lock waiting to be unlocked to get to know Him better. He just wants to share all of his beauty and glory with you every day. Won’t you take the time to get to know Him better? He can be found within the pages of the Bible, waiting for you to get to know Him. It is a truly amazing book.

Ownership?

In America we have become a nation of entitlement. People feel like they are entitled to everything the earth can produce, but the truth is we actually own nothing of this earth. We are just very temporarily using God’s property. God owns all of it for the ‘earth is the Lord’s and the fullness therein’. God owns every atom, molecule, square inch, every heartbeat, every breath on it because He made all of it and us. He owns us and can do with us whatever He desires. Fortunately for us, He is trying to love us into Paradise with Himself. John the Baptist said ‘He can raise up children of Abraham from the stones’. He is in control of everything.

Today women  in this country even think they’re entitled to kill their own unborn children while still in the womb, and so many of the ones we let live we don’t try to teach them about Christ, God and the Holy Spirit at all. No wonder they feel so lost. They have no moral compass by which to steer their lives. We don’t even try to hold our marriages together for the sake of our own little babies! Don’t think as a nation we will not have to answer for this before the Living God.

Our country is in trouble spiritually. We should all get down on our knees before the Living God, praise Him and beg for forgiveness. We are so blessed that He is the most loving, kindest and most forgiving Spirit in existence. Praise God!!

Colors of Infinity

Infinity’s Colors
(Joy of Paradise)

Floating, hair caressing water’s top
And my cheek
In waters,
Colors of gold, orange, silver veins
Multi-hues of your peace, joy, love
Beauty able to be restrained only by the
Non-limits of infinity

Colors pour, wash across your face
Delineating every detail,
as liquids flow down one cheek,
you smile,
leaving me to know it was worth it all

each teardrop, struggle, arrow from
a now-defeated enemy, nothing
compares to this Paradise of Your Glory

none of our weak efforts to describe,
no music, artwork, poem, prose to tell
came one milliliter within
the mark of describing Yourself

Unlimited, uncreated, only You decide,
Form your thoughts, wishes, desires,
Love unlimited, Perfection non-existent
Outside of Yourself

Our job is to watch, stare, take pleasure
In You, a universe awash in Beauty
And worship, reflect your infinitude
back to others surrounding us,
Pulsating, throbbing with your life,
Created from Your desire to share this energy,
Beauty of Unending Life!!

God is not small and wants to give us Himself and His Paradise. Live for that. Let Christ direct your life into Himself and His Love, Joy, Peace for you and this world! Praise God!! May He bless your day!!

New Year, New Life!

New Life

Light, radiance unequaled
Beams, diffuses, emanates from
a center
This light moves, walks forward
Toward me, us, a someone calls
my name, ours

A hand extends, lips smile,
My hand reaches for what is offered &
is Grasped
Within strength’s grip of power,
Inescapable, wonderful, life-giving
Love

Clasped into the heart, chest of
Perfect fulfillment, contentment and
Joy
Unsurpassed, unknown until this
Radiance claims for Himself, His own
Child

So, the question remains for all,
You
Will you accept, do you want
Will you be a part of this life,
Accept or deny
Eternity’s bliss remains, under your
heart’s control

Why would you not want, desire
lust
after perfection, mercy, grace, pleasure
unequaled
on earth’s face, never, ever experienced
anywhere except within the grip of this God,
This Christ!!
