outside the church

Outside the Church

Four walls can a prison make
But prison bars confine
Limit access, restrict body & the mind
However, access to the Sublime
Was never meant to be denied
To anyone

Christ, God, Holy Spirit
Do not just exist, live
In a building one day a week
His name, face, presence
Everywhere we may seek

So His name do not speak
Only in a building
Say it out loud everywhere
Stores, neighbors, from your office chair
Say His name out loud
Be it to one person only
or in a denser crowd

Just say it with great joy
His name is oh so dearly needed
satan’s darkness it has the power to destroy
At one word, CHRIST,
The demons flee,
Fall & tremble on their knees

Carry Him out of that church building
Be His witness, messenger, everywhere
To others His great love, surpassing joy
You will be privileged to share 
Be His hands, His feet, His mouth, His heart
Give to others His glorious, new, fresh start

Temple

Temple

Let me be your temple,
Lord,
Let me be your temple
Your dwelling place
Come fill the space
Inside my heart
That Mercy Seat,
Between cherubim wings
Meant just for you

Come let me live
Anew
In your presence
Bring your shekinah glory
Back
Your very Essence
So I no longer feel
That lack,
That emptiness
Of the soul

Let your Spirit
Indwell
So again I may
Tell
Of your Glory,
Your Power,
Majesty & 
Unending Love

Control me
Take me over
So it is no longer
I that liveth
But you that liveth
In me
Praise you God
For your Mercy!



Union

Union

There is only one
Owner of this world
Accident or chance
Alone did not hurl
Our planet home into
Being

There is a someone
Who decided it to create
Not a natural process
Of chemicals
Life’s requirements 
Will ever satiate

A perfect balance
Was what a universe needs
To form, to cause to be
And there is only 
One Perfect Being alone
with that ability

Perfect power
Perfect sovereignty
Perfect in wisdom
Perfect in His Love
For us

Everything you see
Or touch
Belongs to Him
And Him alone
To live in conjunction
With Him was 
His forever goal

For all of His creation
On His mind was never
Destruction
We were made to exist
With Him hand in hand
In perfect peace, harmony
This is His ultimate plan
United forever, God & man,
Giving of His perfection
The Two become One

Leader (the One)

Leader 

All around varieties of life
Are abundant
Diversities of even people
& not to be redundant
Diversities of ideas

Differences can be okay
But without orderliness
Structure of some kind
We put ourselves at risk
For chaos

Government, a leadership
Is needed
Organization always has
And will require
A leader

This earth is no different
Life has always been set up
To run this way
& to this very day
Good leadership is still craved

But we have always from the
Beginning
Had an excellent, the best,
Perfect even,
A One, so winning
Glorious & Shining

A living, breathing God
Creator
Around whom all 
Diversities of life revolve
There could be no better
Than this One 
In harmony together
With Spirit & Son
But we rebelled
As the ancients tell
So now you have a choice
To follow the light,
HIS VOICE
Or alone & 
On our own
We can continue to follow
The mad disorder
Chaos & confusion
Its dark rebellion,
As without HIM
We get swallowed up
& blindly lead
To our own destruction

Only 1/3 or 1/2

Only 1/3 or 1/2
(one-third or one-half?)


When in cooking 
Is not used a whole ingredient
End products most likely
Become only incomplete
Never of your original intent 

It will look or taste bad
Or fall apart
You will have failed
Before you even start

God’s intention was
For us to give our whole self
Our Whole Heart
So to us His full, total, complete
Beauty, Glory He could impart!

To experience joy unlike
Any other
In love we would all be
Able to live 
As sisters & brothers

But if you hold back
Do not give your full self
That slice, piece to God you refuse
You are only giving satan a foothold
That fragment he will be
most certainly to use!

And you will miss
The incredible, unending gift
God wants to give 
Does not want you to live
Empty, guessing

So, unless you give one-hundred percent
You cannot receive the full blessing 
You will lose the completeness  
That which you were meant to possess
Of His Eternal, Forever Gift
Of that, any part do you want to lose?
