In Love with Jesus?

In Love?

In love with Jesus
Is that what I’m
Supposed to be?
New idea at times
Something worth the try?
Perhaps of this should I see

Infatuated, Adoring
Up in my heart should 
I be storing
For someone such as Him
These feelings will He win
From within me?

The answer to all these questions
Should be
A loud resounding yes
For to love someone else
You must let go of self
Which is assuredly for most 
A very difficult test

But that is what we’re
Called to be
I think I’ll try it
More just to see
What results can possibly come
From making an attempt to
Follow God’s Only Living Son

So, 
Forward, onward
I will go
At times not at all to know
Exactly how to walk
Or talk like Him
My goodness, patience
At times will wear incredibly thin
But hoping more & more 
As on I go His ways to win

So myself I need to remind
More than just one time
With these simple words
‘Not I but Christ that liveth in me’
Hoping, praying someday
A new better version of myself
Will this world finally be able to see!!

Another Level


There is another level to existence
Unseen but not entirely unknown
Ever since we humans walked 
Upon this spinning planet so green
lived under its sun, breathed in its air, 
Of other beings were we fully aware
this other side was completely seen

Until we rebelled against its Leader
The One completely in charge
Ran everything, owned everything,
Loved everything & everyone
Decided to be our own Leader
Replaced God with man
Pushed Him aside to follow a deceiver
And the self’s desires

A schism, a chasm was created
Across which we cannot go
Now we turn our backs, harden the heart
To the things we should strive to know
Build webs of cables, darkened lies
Given by someone who only strives
To bring about our destruction 

Entangled in this deceit, 
We now ignore what we once knew
We encase our hearts in stone
Refusing to see the reality of You
The Owner, Creator, Lord & Master
(gave His life on our cruel cross)
Of this beautifully created Universe!


Colors of Christmas

Colors of Christmas

Red and Green are 
Everywhere seen
For Christmas
Was there a reason for these
Surely there must be
Or so it seems to me

Red in the berries
For the blood that Christ shed
On a cruel cross
As Mary’s body was in pain at your birth
Her heart’s pain at your death most
Assuredly must have been worse

Green for the life that Jesus
Gives freely everywhere
For our souls like plants may rise
Upward to live in His purest of airs

So maybe there was a reason
For the colors of this joyous season
May you come to know the miracle and wonder
As God’s love and mercy ripped asunder
Death’s power over us all forever
Through the birth of Jesus, 
His One and Only Most Glorious Son!

Revolutionary’s Sounds

 
 Revolutionary’s Sounds
  
  
 Whirling, twirling
 Swept up into the air
 Revolutionary sounds
 Were everywhere,
 all around
  
 Ignored they were
 But they were heaven’s cure
 For what was wrong
 Within the songs
 Of man
  
 For all our evil,
 Corruption unbound,
 Still they refused to see
 What God had pleased
 To send them
  
 So only a few listened
 To the man on the cross
 Ignoring from his lips
 The purest, shining gloss
 Of a revolution’s sounds
  
 Bringing words of 
 Great worth
 Love, joy, peace
 To His earth
 Heaven’s purest, pearls
 Our souls He did seek
  
 And so Christ did die
 On the very rocky ground
 He had created 
 Our God, 
 Alone and bound
 But still left behind
 For those who choose
 The fiery, purest joy of
 His Revolutionary’s Sounds!! 
   

Footsteps

artforfootsteps

 

Footsteps

I can hear your

Footsteps

Echoing through time

Will they ever,

Can I follow,

Align with mine?

I can feel the ground

Shake

As you run from one

To another, saving,

making us all brothers

Ground shakes,

Stars sing

Angels speak

What more can be done

Already which is done?

Still you go on stepping

One foot in heaven

The other is on earth

Running, sometimes walking

Changing times, people

Hearts, glory on display

As We’re all waiting, watching for

Rebirth.

Into a world that only

Sings your name

So each step has not

Been for nothing

Lives rebuilt, spirits saved

Love rekindled in the light

Of Christ’s glorious new day!

Waiting

Waiting

I cannot stop

This joy divine

Transcending all space

And time

As I wait at the bottom step

Of a shining throne

My heart has leapt

More than once

To watch you move

 

I sigh, waiting for

Your hand

To lift me to something

more grand

Than I can imagine or wish

I wait for your

Eternal kiss

 

Sighing, longing

In unexpected joy I wait

For surely, they swing wide

Your heaven’s gates

Each and everyone

May step through

Ushered in by

The ecstatic love & blood

of your glorious Son!

Romans 8:25 Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not

yet have, we wait for it patiently.
