Pleasure Seeking!!

It is so sad to see such a great country as ours literally destroying it self morally. There is still good and God’s grace and love in it, but America is slowly dying from moral decay. We have had the sexual revolution of the 60’s but now have the highest divorce rate in the industrialized world and an almost total lack of respect for marriage, the home and the family. We don’t even try to hold our homes together for our own little babies. Sexual morality is falling apart. Our entertainment glorifies sexual promiscuity and infidelity.

We are so caught up in consuming useless man-made things and hedonistic pleasure seeking we can’t hardly see straight. There is more to life than just partying all the time. God meant for our lives to be so much more. Seek His ways. His guidelines for life give it a richer depth and show us we were created to share His love, glory and peace and to reflect that back to each other.

Dear God,

I pray for a spiritual revival in this country. We need you so badly. May we return to the foot of your cross Lord Jesus to find our purpose in this world again. In your name I pray, Amen.

Media

Voices crying out

From every street corner

Vying for attention

Willing to grab, garner

In any way, your eyes

 

Which leads to

The heart

The inner you, do not

Let the world

Of you have

That part

 

These voices,

Indiscriminately cry out

Led by the great deceiver

Ceaselessly they shout

 

From

TV, magazines, airwaves

The Internet

The world in chaos

Do not give in, let

Them have your

Thoughts

 

Deluded by the greatest

Destroyer of all life

Father of all lies,

Murderer

Do not give them or him

your time

 

The World & its Media

Walk with blinders

Put on by one more

Clever than man

This Satan,

Do not let him have

Your hand

 

Do not be led

By his cruel heart

Instead give

Christ

That precious part

Of you

Which shall never die

Your spirit,

Created to be

Like the light

Meant to live in, see

God’s eternal glory!

Praise God!!!

 

 

 

 

 

City of New Hope

cityofhopeart

City of New Hope

Celestial spires

Rise high

As angel choirs

Sound, rejoice

Holy saints walk,

Rub elbows

Side by side

 

In a city so rare

Where golden is the air

Encircling every face

Settling, leaving a trace

Of its shining glory

 

Walls there

Sheer, translucent

Rainbowed in ever

Changing colors

Saints live, worship

In joy with each other

 

The nearness, life of

Their God

Filling every crevice

Perfection’s glory

Fulfilling every wish

 

Throne room of

Grace

Three working as one

Joy lifts each face

To see their God

Forever

 

My human words

Are inadequate to say

Express the glory

Of even just one day

Within this place

Where perfection holds

Its complete sway

 

The world’s divine God

Lives here

Abolishes every care

Hungry, yearning

For you to dare

To aim for such a place

Reach higher

While you still have the time

He sits enthroned,

Waiting

For you to reach for

Him & His home transcendent,

This Heaven’s light sublime!

Leaf’s Lace

 

Leaf’s lace

In water

Frozen for all time

Your clear crystal glory

Only brings to mind

 

A forest’s giant

Rough bark glazed

Painted in winter’s whites

Glistening, waiting

In a cooler’s sun’s light

 

I walk through

Boots all full of snow

Enjoying the dripping silence

Of this cold day’s glow

 

Nature waiting

All quiet, sleeping for now

As it comes in unannounced

Spring’s breath blows gently

Stirring to arouse
