Faith

Faith

My faith is all I have
To carry me
To the other side
Before I leave
Before I die

Large, monstrous
That great gift
Given so we may sift
Thru all life’s pains
Knowing, at times,
It will cause major rifts
Between us

But even God Himself said
As He walked, talked
And eventually bled
I come not to bring peace
But a sword
A man’s enemies 
Will be his own family

So do not be discouraged
If in your own life
These words come true
For I have seen & known
Never will He leave you
Never will He forsake you
God forever His promises will keep
Even as you slumber
Even as you sleep!

Listen

Listen

Even above the clouds
Mere wisps of white over
The head
Sounds arise,
In low bass tones
In tenor notes so high
Music is constantly
Sung and led
Take the time to 
Listen

Notes spiraling
Circling
In, among celestial skies
Let your spirits fly
Let them to their highest
rise
Above this dusty earth

Walk through heaven’s 
Gates
Again, 
LISTEN
Angelic voices beckon
As their voices 
Any earthly heart
May awaken
To join in their praise also

Without restraint
Saints & angels dance
From their first glance
At their Creator’s 
Gleaming face
Removing every trace
Of any darkness

Cymbals clash
Out of heavenly instruments
Fairest notes constantly pass
To praise, to worship
On each tongue’s tip
His Name will forever last

So take time to listen
This effort you will not regret
At each note as it glistens
Shining, living
It reaches out to you to get
To encourage you 
To also join in,
And God’s heavenly 
Rewards you too may praise
And for all infinity win!

At Night!

At Night

At night
I dream of your face
Hardly daring to believe
You would give me
This taste
Of You
Your Beauty
Overwhelming Power
Completed Purity

Such intimacy with one
Such as You
More than I, mere man,
Can ever comprehend
I pray never will it end
Praise You, Lord God,
Praise You

In golden splendor
You arrive
Settling somewhere above,
Between,
All my why’s
To Be
As You Will Be
So, 
I tremble on my knees
Gratitude
Contained in tears, it falls

Again,
 I tremble at your call,
But I dare not
Do not wish to resist
For this I live & breathe
Waiting, I cannot fully
Conceive
This future hope
Of your Magnificent Eternity!!

Transported – To Wait

Transported –To Wait

Trembling,
In this place I wait
Promised, hoping,
Told of a better fate
Than any of the years,
Or days, 
Down here
Still I am determined
To wait

This level 
Is heavy
Weighed down
By much
Painful at times
To the touch
It has been promised
Though if I continue 
To look up
Much better awaits

A lighter level
Of existence
But for all my life here
I will have to stay near
In order to receive 
A Spirit’s assistance
Which, of course,
Depends solely upon
My acceptance

Light everywhere 
Will we receive
Those who refuse to 
Give up
Remaining in belief
Purity, glory,
Living righteousness abounds
As we partake in the sounds
Of the angels’ dancing praise!

A Daughter, A Son

A Daughter, A Son

We are his daughters, his sons
If your Father were under attack
Would you just turn tail
And run?
In my heart, I hope not

When they deny His Name
They abuse His Spirit
Of
Perfect Love, Joy, Peace
Patience, Goodness, Kindness
To name a few
But it is up to all of us
To me and you

An evil, destructive satan
Wants to destroy all of us
And watching the world today
He does it without much effort 
Or a fuss
God’s disciples we are meant 
To be
So our Father’s love & forgiveness
Every eternal soul here may see

It truly is a battle for our
Hearts & minds
So step up,
Join the front lines
Even pain-filled at times
As it might be
Because,
Without us in the war
The enemy has already won!

The City

A Wondrous City
This Holy Jerusalem
Containing at one time
A temple built for only
           HIM

His presence to visit
Between golden cherubim’s wings
He listened
While choirs on its steps
To Him did sing
His Name
His Power
His Fame

To it one day
This Only God
Will return
After all evil
Is vanquished
Destroyed
In one heartbeat,
Burned

So we raise holy hands
As we fall to our knees
In obedience’s path
Seeking only to please
(to be transformed
your earth & us)

No longer to rebel in ignorance
Against your beauty
To rise to Your higher calling,
That greater, purer duty
And follow Your Forever Call
Watching, waiting
As once again your raise
Her holy walls
Regrow, renew
Re-begin
This Holy Jerusalem!
