Pentecostal Fire

Pentecostal Fire

Disciples, huddled
In an upper room
Shaking in their boots
Trying to dispel the gloom
Of your death
Feeling only fear’s failure was left

Until,
A Pentecostal fire
Blazed across their heads
By tongues of living fire
Were they to be led

To stop the shaking, quaking
& rise up
Boldly speak
Those first words of hope
To preach
And loudly proclaim
In many tongues
The life, the power
Of God’s only RISEN SON!

Before

Before


Before all time and space
There was a glorious face
Full of only grace
Love for all He surveyed
Having always the last say
Over everything

But,
His goodness, beauty 
So overwhelming
So always flowing
Over and upward welling
He wished to share it
With others

So the Three got together
Made planets spin
Stars shine
But decided they had rather
Make some someones

A planetary home was made
The darkest of night 
Became a day
Animals, all creatures 
Brought into His sight
Then
His allowed His man to stand upright

He felt such joy
In this glorious child
He had truly let
His imagination run wild
Crowned us at last
With one glorious smile!

Shout for joy
All the earth
At the glory 
Of this first birth
But never fear,
He will remove
For a second time all tears

As once again,
The battle against 
Darkness He will win
Return us,
Back home
If we choose
Remember God will
Never ever lose!!

The Race

The Race

It matters not how 
The race begins
It matters only how
The race will end

From the very start
There will be times
That may truly
Almost stop your heart

But never fear
The Scriptures say
There is for race-winners
A much more glorious
Day!

As you step across the 
Finish line
Through death’s portals
Or when God ends for all time
satan, sin, pain, evil’s darkness

The greatest prize you will win
You will be allowed forever to trace
Looking into that Most Beautiful Face
The One who loves you the most
All will be allowed to at last boast
In that cross, that shed blood
Which unleashed into infinity
His Passionate & Incomprehensible
UNENDING LOVE!
