I am a Blade of Grass

I am a Blade of Grass

Not literally, I know
But
I am a blade of grass
Only another Part of Creation
Never meant to ever
Last

In this form, level of
Existence.
Shaped by Love’s
Own voice
It was my Creator’s
Choice

To give me life
Within
His bounds of Love
And Grace
Meant to live in the light
Of His most beautiful face

I am alive, green, for now
But He is the God
not I
For soon I too will wilt,
Blown upward to live
Within the expanses of
Heaven’s bluest skies.

So, I, the creation,
Am satisfied,
Transformed into
Heaven’s own child,
Transplanted to grow,
& Dance beneath his Smile.

So many people in the world have lost respect for our Creator, forgetting we are just another part of His creation & only here because He wanted to share His overwhelming beauty and love with us. Praise God!

Essence

Essence

Essence of blood
Released from
A throne above
Soft, silky to
The touch
But each drop contains
A liquid fire

Burning, consuming, expanding
Enters the human
Heart
Rising, flaming up to
Leap to life upon its altar,
A burning release of passion

Ardor sent from heaven
To awaken the within
Of our souls
To purpose, new life,
overflowing joy dancing
among the flames

Multiplying, intensifying
Man’s weak embers
Into an ever rising
Song-lit flame
To ascend the skies
and join their Savior’s
Red flowing passion

drop by drop
it descended,
those red liquid flames
dripping, covering a darkened earth
hearts revive,
encapsulated by
this merciful King’s gift
within the fire of an
awakened life

Had a beautiful sunrise this morning. Pictures above are of that. Praise God!!

Light!!

lightgod

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!!

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!!

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!!

 

Rebirth

jesus'glory

Rebirth
It tears at my flesh,
My soul is reborn
Into a world of light.
No more running out of the night.

I thank you Gracious Lord again
For this glory of new life.
It runs downhill and up
In endless joyful flight!

 

I’ve talked before about dreams God has given me in the past. They’re always so vivid in color and details and so beautiful. I had another one a few nights ago. I was walking with Jesus down a street, and the sense of joy was so overwhelming. He was sharing His joy with me. It was fantastic. Always is. Anyway, we were walking down the street. I had sort of blondish hair, my hair is naturally dark although at my age I’m almost completely grey, and I was dressed very casually, more bohemian. We were walking down the street. People were walking by, and we were just sharing His joy with them, talking to them. It was a great dream.
My resolution for the beginning of this new year is to be reborn. The type of rebirth that Christ told Nicodemus about, to be born of water and the Spirit. I feel a need for this. I was born into darkness from which He has saved me. I pray you could get to know your Savior better this year also. He really is fantastic, beautiful and loves you so overwhelmingly! In Christ’s name Amen. Praise God!!

 

Imagine!

artforImagine

Imagine

Throne, glistening,
Unapproachable
Glory, brilliant light,
Beauty, colors of infinity

Sitting in Your place
Love, forgiveness
implanted on your face
desperate need at your feet

screaming out your name
transcendent above
this noise, chaos,
darkness, ignorant rebellion

a universe held within
your hand
no longer wishing to
follow your commands

One spirit asks,
You would leave all
This!
Remember their past

We adore you, Lord
Do not leave
We will do anything
Your sovereign will to please

But, this perpetual glory
Cannot be restrained.
I cannot ignore their grief
Their sorrow or their pain

The multitudes acquiesce
And bow
Ready to submit their wills
Left only to guess

So He lays aside, removes
A crown
Glistening, reflecting each
Star, lights which abound

Only in this eternity of
Ecstasy, bliss,
Adoration, worship.
Giving His Father one last
Kiss

One last touch of a
Father’s hand
As they prepare to face the
Agony of this plan

Silence falls, all heaven
Stops
Wondering, hoping
As He bends to drop
Below.

So, with shepherds, beasts
Within a barn’s dirty stall
A Savior releases glory
taking up the saving,
redeeming His creation
from its fall.

Beauty!!

beautyofGod_1

 

Beauty
Before beginnings
Of time, space, energy
Matter
Only heavenly ecstasies
Existed

Even so You decided
To create
Your own eternity
Written
In fleshly forms

After You spoke
Light appeared
Your breath touched the
Ground
Dust arose and we
Walked

Up, rise up
Live, enjoy my
Presence
Stay within my boundaries
Of love

Then time shattered
As we rejected You,
Rebelled,
Lost our place in
Your paradise
But

You were not finished
With us
You came, died
Took our place
On that cross
So a waiting universe,
holding its Breath,
could see
Your Beauty

May God Bless Your Day. Praise God!!
