Lust!

Lust!

Lust, to
Intensely Desire
Is your name
To create discord,
Discontent
Is your deceitful game.

To make us want
Pleasures
We do not have
For this type of
Wound there is
No magical salve.

Deep it may run
Abscess & ache
nothing on
our green planet heals
This pain no matter
How much you may partake

Of fulfilling your
Lusts
Of each and
Every kind
Its appetite just increases
With indulgences & time.

Worldly lusts leave
One empty, so unstill
Unsatisfied
Until you seek first a higher
Lust that always will fill
Your center’s deepest needs.

We constantly are
Trying to tame
This unquiet restless ache
That only one lust
Can soothe & never
your weary heart break.

A heavenly lust
For a Creator/Father
Endlessly seeking
Each son and daughter
Wandering the earth
To restore to His safekeeping

Each lonely child
Each wounded soul.
His eternal goal
To bring you peace
Safely into the realm of
His Loving Arms
And Heavenly fold.

Had one day of good sunshine and went back out on our greenway system. There is a great horned owl nesting on two babies in a treetop. I have never seen a wild one that up close before. I also got to see some large blue herons nesting in their treetop nests. I did not know they nested in trees!

It has rained so much recently that the water in the river was up and running stronger than normal making lots of pretty unusual waterfalls and waves. A mammoth tree got carried down river and stuck in one of the bridges. Don’t know how they’re going to get that out! Flowers and green grass are coming out and looking beautiful. Have a very blessed day and stay safe. Praise God!!!

Joy

joyart

Joy
(For the Joy set before Him)

Joy transcendent
Above our planet’s face
Transfixed it rises
Reaching upper space
Seeking its one true home.

Coming from a
Higher source
It is not satisfied
Until it has finished,
Run its committed course.

Promised in angel’s
Whispers
Sought by ancient
Prophets’ words
Looking to occur

In whomever will
Take the time
Learn to listen to
Heaven’s wishes
And smallest sighs.

A Savior exposed your
Greatest power
Enduring a cruel cross
To show your face
In his darkest hour

For your sake he
Endured a painful death
Making sure not one,
No single child
Would ever be left

Not seeing, not knowing
Your saving Grace.
For you, Joy, He
Remained on a path
of a criminal’s shame
yet transcending still
toward His Father’s Face.

Spring’s Beauty

 

Yes, I am going a little stir crazy! Because of my age and health issues, I am weaker than most people. I have had a few rounds of chemotherapy and taken off my hormones so I still have issues of fatigue. Naturally, I have stayed at home to keep away from the corona virus. But I am getting a little tired of staying away from other people.

My husband in his kindness drove me around town so I could take a few pictures of the  beauty of this spring’s flowering trees. I don’t know exactly what kind some of them are, but I do recognize the tulip poplars and what we always called pink bud trees. God in the midst of troubles still delivers beauty in His natural world. Praise God!! I pray you have a very blessed day.

To Testify or give Evidence

I have said before in an earlier blog that I started this mostly to tell of some experiences I had as a follower and believer in Christ. I had a very traumatic and devastating childhood, and because of that I needed an extra filling with and encouragement from the Holy Spirit. I believe that is why God allowed me to have some of the supernatural experiences with Him that I have had.

I have told this before in a blog from October of 2018. Here is my testimony again:  For years now, I guess about 7 or 8, I have been wanting to talk about something that happened to me one night. I have only told family members about it since I’m not very good at standing up and talking in front of people or telling things to people. I guess I was afraid they wouldn’t believe me.

I have…

Problem Solved

God-the-Father-Jehovah#2

 

God is the answer to all of our earth’s problems. He made it, He controls it, and He loves it and you more than anyone else will ever love it or you. Praise God! But you have to return the favor.

Malachi 3:7-12  Ever since the time of your ancestors you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you,” says the LORD Almighty.

But you ask, “How are we to return?”

“Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me.”

But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’

In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse —– your whole nation —— because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the LORD Almighty. “Then all the nations will call you blessed for yours will be a delightful land,” says the LORD Almighty.

Tithes aren’t always money or in Israel’s case food. Sometimes it is just the tithe of time, energy or just plain respect and reverence.

Malachi 2:17 You have wearied the Lord with your words.

“How have we wearied him?” you ask.

By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the LORD, and he is pleased with them.”

Malachi 3:1-3 “I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple.

But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver.

Malachi 3:5 So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the Lord Almighty.

God loves us so passionately, profoundly and deeply He was willing to put His only precious Son through a tortuous death so we could live with Him in infinity’s Paradise forever.

Try to stay safe and have a blessed day. Praise God!!

 

 

Breathe

Breathe

Breathe
In and Out
of This Spirit,
Ancient and Holy

Exists, giving You
Breath.
Owning each heartbeat,
Each sigh,
Coming, giving you Life.

Purifying, replenishing,
a Holy Fire burning,
Desiring
to live within
Us.

God desires for His Holy Spirit to live within us as ‘a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance’ and to help us become His new creation, ‘the old is passed away’. Praise God!!

Pure Love

supernova5

 

The love of the God-head—God the Father, God the Son Jesus and God the Holy Spirit— is overwhelming. They are the only source of all the good things in life that most people deep within themselves really desire. The fruits of His Spirit are listed in Galatians 5:22-23 ‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law’. In a nutshell, this is God.

That is what made our rebellion in the garden so terrible and horrific. We rebelled against someone so beautiful, wonderful, magnanimous and gracious that it is hard for us to comprehend because we do not come close to His goodness and beauty. We rebelled against pure, unadulterated, unblemished Perfect Love. His love is so perfect that the Creator of Heaven and Earth, let Himself be hung on a cruel, torturous Roman cross instead of inflicting the torment on us. He died for every human being that has ever existed so we could be forgiven for our rebellion. That is His Amazing Grace!

Won’t you accept His perfect love today and come back into the original peace and harmony we at one time had in that garden. He is ceaselessly looking for you. May you have a blessed day. Praise God!!
