The Cell

The Cell

Alone
And in my empty cell
I try to find the words
To tell
Of Your Great Beauty

You come to me
Across a dark, dampened floor
Only the light on Your Face
Helping my soul to soar
Over & above
Whatever life’s tomorrow
May hold for me in store

So,
Whatever prisons you
Must face
Only on our Christ’s 
Loving face
Will you be allowed to trace
The strength, courage
You will need
For your songs to sing
Of this Prince of Peace
This Heavenly King
as upward toward 
His Heavenly gates
He alone carries each soul
On the Purest of Glory’s wings!

Every Day!

Every Day!

Every day,
We need your help
Still so many tears on earth
Do fall
Please stop to hear, to listen
To our calls

Return to me
Before I may move
Not impossible is this
To understand for you

From above God’s voice beckons
Turn & live in a new direction
So from my throne may flow
My Joy-Filled weapons
That you may live in
The newest of glorious heavens
Forever enthroned upon
My loving affections! 

Zechariah 1:3 Therefore tell the people: This is what the Lord Almighty says: Return to me, declares the Lord Almighty and I will return to you says the Lord Almighty.(NIV)

Jeremiah 32:27 Behold I am the Lord the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me? (KJV)

New Day!

New Day!

Rushing, crashing
Waves of life
Come washing over me
From a tumultuous,
Increasingly treacherous sea!

Brokenness comes into 
The line of the shore
With a raging, angry
Dangerous roar
What is it that they want
My frail, tiny boat
At last
To completely swamp?

For this is what it seems
As to my craft I cling
And scream
Those waves keep 
Coming,
Coming
In large volumes,
Positively reams
Sent by that satan
That oh so ancient enemy

But of this life he 
Will not have the last word
Because as quickly as he comes
Away will he be turned
By a larger, grander, 
More Powerful Ship
Will he be
Destroyed,
Forever spurned 

With the unfolding of just one
Bright, white sail
satan is completely undone, 

Rising in a brighter boat
Is God’s Only Son
Golden on the horizon
As a rapidly rising sun
In Pure Joy,
That New Day of our
Lord & King has finally 
and at last come!!!

Lost World

Lost World

who would want to live
in a world without
God’s purpose
Where boundaries have no name
each human heart
choses the beginning
of its own tumultuous game

no structure
no solidity
only constant fluidity
rampant running 
from one idea to another
as they lay sunning
on rocks just waiting
another innocent
to be baiting
not realizing each stone
carries the lust of 
each heart’s own depravity

guidelines are good
standing out from the crowds 
as they should
but just make sure they come
from God’s reliable source
with them you may run
a more worthy course
of purpose
not caught in a nervous circus
so stay away from the
darkened service
of a ‘Lost World’

Miracle

Miracle

What would cause
A god
Of any kind
Rich, wealthy
Most sublime

To step 
From His perfection’s
Heaven 
To literally
Slum
With us?

This was no impulse
Done with intent
A driven purpose
Such a love
Beyond robust!
So this is the miracle
For us!

That one so 
Wondrous
Of beauty,
Power
Would step 
Down 
To save us
From a most dreadful
Hour 

For without this
Miracle
Only a place most
Terrible
Awaited

So do not 
Hesitate
Accept what
Christ
Longs to give
A better 
Fate 

Life 
With His 
Beauty
Into
Infinity!

Rushes

Life rushes
Sometimes it
Even crushes
Until hearts stop
Breathing ceases
& we see,
Are released
From our dulled shell

To another place
Us You will send
Even as we
Our bodies lend
Back to the dust

We need to prepare
So our spirits
May we share
With Yours
At last
To enjoy
Rejoice

Infinity
Only a beginning
Of pure joy
So I implore
I ask
Do not let this
Forever pass
Your spirit by!
