We Say I say this You say that Words flying thru the air Tossed into that great hat Of a world's opinions Changing almost by the hour Quickly coming in increasing showers From the human ever restless heart At an ancient beginning, our start No end in sight to this Our dark, yet most refin-ed art In opposition to more elevated words Trying strongly man's destiny to turn Spun from heaven's celestial higher calling Still we stumble, tumble over our mispronuciations to continue falling Over our own words We ruin ourselves our lives With crude, more crass words every day When will we ever learn the Value in those words our only God has such to say? God's words can lift us higher Ignite in us once more a Spirit's fire Able to lift out of a dark murk & mire Of our own creating We should listen To what God has to say With His shining verbal pearls Enhancing all our days Speaking crystal shards of truth To deny satan's stabbing wounds As in eternity an ancient enemy's darkness God forever will at last exclude!!!

A Part Of. . . .
A Part Of Like I was created to be A part of your great group Your Holy Trinity! A smaller part As I bend down Worship at your knees A gift to be like You Should that not My worldly values askew? A world out of balance So out of its mind Tumbling along on a very thin line Not even your angels Did You die for Over us Your Spirit’s healing Did You wish to pour To enable, re-birth Through all the light & darkness of this universe, Along its massive girth No one thing and no one else Did You create to reflect The goodness of Yourself Only us! Thank you, Dear Lord In You only May I completely trust!
This a repeat of an earlier post. I realize people are sometimes uncomfortable sharing supernatural or spiritual experiences they have had, but I only tell this because I want people to know how real God is and how much He does loves you.
I have sleep apnea. I don’t know if you know what that is, but that’s where when you lay down on your back to sleep the muscles that hold up your soft palette at the back of your throat relax so much that the palette itself collapses downward and blocks your airway. In other words, you stop breathing. It is dangerous and can kill you.
However, one night before I realized how dangerous sleep apnea can be, I went to sleep one night and somehow must have gotten off my side and into a position that was not safe. I woke up suddenly and was in a different place.
I remember feeling a slight tinge of fear but was mostly confused, thinking where am I?? All around me was nothing but deep blackness until suddenly I could see this spiral of beautiful, puffy white clouds spiraling off into the distance. I did not want to look at the far distant end of the spiral because I had this sudden knowledge that if I looked at it, there would be no going back. Somehow I just knew that. Don’t know how, but I just did, but I was not given a choice. I had to look at the end of the spiral, and so I did.
Next, let me say that I had no physical sensation at all. I was fully awake, fully conscious, but there were no physical sensations. I had no awareness of a body.
To get back to where I was, as soon as I looked at the end of the spiral of clouds, I was in the other place, but this one was different. This beautiful, beautiful light was everywhere. It glistened and shone like nothing I have ever seen. But the light was alive. There was a massive intelligence or presence inside the light. Like nothing I have ever experienced.
It was so bright it almost hurt to look at it and the colors of the rainbow were moving through it constantly. It was so bright that I turned to look away, but again, I was not given a choice. I had to look at the light so I did.
When I turned to look at it again, suddenly it felt like somebody had taken me and thrown me as hard as they could up against a brick wall. There was this really hard boom, and I was back inside my body. Totally awake but back inside of my body going “What just happened to me.”
I laid there for a few minutes, thinking about what I had just seen and experienced. I moved around a little trying to get my bearings back and then decided the only thing it could have been was for a few minutes or less, because it happened so quickly, so very quickly, is I think I died! It is the only explanation I can think of.
I believe for a very few brief seconds, I was allowed to see some of the glory of the Living God. The light was beautiful beyond words. I wish everyone could have seen it. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.
The only reason I wanted to tell this is I hope it will reassure everyone that there really is life after death, and that God is more beautiful than any of my weak human words could ever express.
I pray that the living God Himself will bless your day and your whole life and that you can get to know Him better. He really does love you very, very much. God Bless You.
The Voice We scurry We hurry Caught up in distractions We forget the impaction Of ignoring Ignoring what you say? The only face That dispenses grace Every heartbeat every day For the world That's simply their way But For a Christian? It means we've failed To stop & listen To the only One In the position To stop the insanity Darkness surrounds us To us Christ entrusts His truths, His light To dispense To a world never meant To be this lost When we His church Get so caught up In the world's culture We forget to nurture HIM IN US Then by our silence And this our choice Christ has no voice & only doom awaits!
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 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!
