Community

Community

Life is not just about me
Or you & you
It is about all of us,
This whole frail planet of dust
One large community
In this we must believe, trust

My country & also yours
Every one, small & large
Bears the terrible scars
Of an enemy’s lies

Seeking to tear down, destroy
About this he has never been coy
Plainly wishes us to end
& all his battles to win

Masquerading sometimes
As an angel of light
(he does not easily
give up the fight)
Lies, kills, deceives
All to bring us to our knees
In searing pain

Railing against 
God’s Holy Name
Before his strength does wane
As he knows it for certain will
So our joys he seeks to kill
And our salvation steal

But,
If as one we will all follow
The One whose name
Is forever above all
If we answer Christ’s call
Then assured is satan’s fall
& his power rings most hollow

So, let all believers agree to be
One united world-wide community
That standing together no matter the cost
We all will assuredly see
Our loving Christ’s glory & victory!!

Big Deal!

A Big Deal

To an orphan such
As I
One of the biggest deals
I can spy
Is 

For someone to desire
Cannot lift them higher
Than to want to be
My parent

And that is exactly 
What God, the Holy Lord
Creator
Wants to be 
For each & everyone
You are able to see

Wants to be your Father
Daddy, Papa
Wants every soul to gather
Under His wings forever
For all of eternity

No small trickle
Wave after wave rushing
Toward you pushing
Torrential flood
Of perfection’s love

So step into the flow
Take the time to 
Get to know
The One & Only God
Who loves you the most
It’s the biggest, best deal 
This world will ever see!

The Pearl

The Pearl

I run in the
Darkness
Crying, panting
In terror
Until
In the distance
I see the Pearl

Small at first,
Yet shining brightly
I run harder
To escape the darkness 
So frightening
Toward the Pearl

And so, my body I hurl
Faster, faster
Must reach the light 
enveloping
that large shining orb
a sense of safety
developing
around that Pearl

I run faster, harder
Until I reach its
Resting place
Fall to my knees
And in its white, translucent
Skin I begin to see

A reflection of my own face
Until there seems to
Appear a second trace
Of another face
Someone else beside me
A hand falls upon my shoulder
I tremble
But then become bolder

I turn around to look
The one beside me smiles,
Speaks,
I am the one long ago you forsook
But now with your return
As is written in my Book
All is forgiven
My Blood bought you back
And you have returned 
To Me, Your Savior
And Your Pearl!

Matthew 13: 45-46: Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of Great Value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

The I Am

The I Am
       (GOD)

Eternity’s All-Consuming, 
Roaring Fire
Radiant Glory
Purity
Truest Beauty on display
From one glance
My heart breaks
I weep

Unworthy,
Created to carry 
Your Image
I became corrupted
Perverted

But that was not
The end of the story
You decided
Sacrificed your throne
A crown

Without a sound
Laid down
I raised my hand
And struck
Your love absorbed
My cruelty’s darkness
Killed yourself
To stop my pain

Revolving

Revolving

Life is revolving
Circumstances Shifting, 
Always evolving
Which is okay
God did not mean for
Us to stay
Forever static

But what are we
To become?
Is there an answer 
To that as I run
My life’s race?
Just around what does 
My life revolve?

All existence
Revolves around
God the Son,
God the Father
God the Holy Spirit
Holding all of life
Every living thing
In their hands

Stars spin, 
Lives end & begin
Planets die off
All in tune to 
A universal melody
An eternal song
Chiming out the purity
Infinity’s bright light
In God’s love

So, join in the dance
Let Him also entrance
Your heart
Join the mighty crowds
That have been endowed
With His Grace, Mercy
Forgiveness
Let your life revolve
Around His!
