Alpha & Omega

 
 
 The Alpha and the Omega

 The Alpha 
 &
 The Omega
 The beginning
 And the end
 To my ears
 It does lend
 A beautiful sound,
 A Melody
  
 It sang among 
 The stars
 Tinkled around
 The sun’s face
 Following the
 Road of grace
 It raced
 Upward, higher 
  
 Climbing the Stairway
 To Paradise, 
 that Ecstasy, Bliss
 it is to receive from 
 His lips
 one word, one kiss
 of His Perfection
  
 So it was
 Before all space 
 And time began
 As we relate it
 Before any
 Water, air or land
 Out of three great hearts
 Was formed a
 Great and mighty plan
  
 Falling from the hands
 Of three,
 Father, Son, Spirit
 To create another
 With whom to share 
 The love, peace
 Kindness goodness
 Flowing around
 Their joy-filled dance
 So, with only
 One single glance
 They fulfilled the plan
  
 And created their man
 To live below
 On a shining green world
 Within the sun’s glow
 And their eyes’ love
 Joining in the wonder
 Of their existence
  
 It is the same today
 As from our first day
 On this our home,
 A shining ball,
 Always there was 
 A beginning and 
 There will be an end
 To what is now seen
 We will return to 
 The original plan,
 Our purpose,
 And live in glory
 Within their eyes’ gleam
  

Revelation 21:6-8 He said to me: It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars — they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

The ANSWER

 
 
 Answer
  
 Most stand calling
 Not realizing they do
 What is it they Desire?
 They need You,
 Lord, God
 The passion, fire
 Of your heart
 For them!
  
 That is the answer 
 We all need.
 In blindness & 
 Stumbling, fumbling
 Is this not what
 We all seek?
  
 Seeking joy, peace, 
 Fulfillment,
 Love
 We wander, fight
 Shove 
 For our share
 Of this earth
 When all true life
 Flows freely from above.
  
 INSIDE GOD’S HEART
 We were made to live
 From the very start
 This is the purpose,
 ANSWER
 For which we were 
 Created
 In only this, 
 Are all needs sated
  
 To live daily
 In contentment
 More Fulfilled
 Try as much as you
 Can
 To live inside
 His Will
 His Intellect, 
 His purposes
  
 Your old man
 That self
 Must be killed
 To let Him have
 His way
 Over you
 His sway
 So you may say,
 Not I but Christ
 That liveth in me.
  
 But because we turn
 Away
 Harden our hearts,
 Without our true calling
 We endlessly wander
 Thru all of life
 Unsatisfied, discontent
 stumbling
 & falling
  
  
   

Exposure

 
 
 Exposure
  
 So I will lay myself
 Bare
 I do not care
 If they stare
 If a glimpse into 
 My soul
 Will bring them
 Into your fold
 then God, Let it be
  
 If looking into
 My heart
 Will get them to 
 Start
 Seeing you better
 If it be ever so clever
 Of
 You to begin
 then may You win
  
 them on their journey
 closer to your Son
 bright, blazing glory
 of your face
 joy unbounded
 found only
 in the grounding
 of each soul
 in your great power
 and self! 

Divisions

 
 
 Divisions
  
 Divisions, divisions
 In a Sea
 Of Faces
 Never meant
 To be
  
 We were
 Meant to be
 All one
 As
 The One,
 Father, Spirit
 Holy Son
  
 Joined together
 In the perfect dance
 In one glance
 You can see
 This world’s
 Ultimate Unity!
  
 So, it does 
 Not make sense
 For God’s family
 To be so divided
 For this there 
 Stands no defense
  
 A church, family
 divided only
 Hurts itself
 Taking away
 Not adding
 Leaving all
 Bereft
  
 of the
 Fellowshipping
 Love, Joy
 especially 
 the Peace
 Steals the 
 Equipping
 Meant for us
  
 So, Holy Family
 God’s one true
 Church
 Tear down the 
 Walls
 Those horrible
 Divisions
 Never meant 
 To be
 And we will 
 See. . . 
 Heaven! 
   
  

Ephesians 4:3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.

1 Corinthians 1:12-13 What I mean is this: One of you says, I follow Paul; another, I follow Apollos; another, I follow Cephas; still another, I follow Christ. Is Christ divided?

My Existence

 Existence
  
  
 My heart beats
 My lungs breathe
 I can laugh,
 Play,
 Savor the day
 I exist
  
 My thoughts are 
 My own
 In my head 
 They have found
 A home
 Within to rest
  
 Put me to the test
 Will I or won’t I
 Do this or that
 I can hear these,
 My thoughts
  
 For you see
 This is the real
 You and me
 A living breathing
 Spirit, soul
 Only temporarily,
 For now
 Attached to this
 mortal shell
  
 Given a chance
 to grow
 Get to know
 The One who runs
 The universe
 And beyond,
 Transcendent,
 With His Son
  
 For one day He 
 Has promised 
 He will come
 This living,
 breathing Son
 Shining in all His splendor
 This wonderful Giver
 Of our Life
 This gift of
 Our Existence!
   

My Debts

 My Debts
  
  
 Up to my eyeballs in debt
 I sigh I moan
 I truly, deeply regret
 What I have done
 To myself
  
 No one else to blame
 Oh, the embarrassing shame!
 Oh, what I cannot claim
 Of wisdom
  
 Loud commercials
 Made it seem so real
 Oh, their endless appeal
 So, I got sucked in 
 By the alluring din
 Of a greedy world
  
 So now I am an endless slave
 This I can mostly certainly say
 Onward I go 
 Trying to show
 A new confidence
  
 I slug away
 Each morning, new day
 At the mountainous debt
 Trying to correct
 This wreck
 I’ve made of my life
  
 I know it will end
 And I will never, ever,
 Ever again spend
 Myself into this death march
 toward another fresh & open 
 financial grave 

Probably not such a good poem for this time of year, right before the biggest gift giving holiday, but still timely I hope. Remember it’s only one day out of the year. Remember God loves you and wants only the best for you and your family. Have a blessed and peace filled day!

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!! 
   

3 Somebodies!

 
 
 

 3 Somebodies
  
 Three on a throne
 Living as one
 Universe awash in
 Their love
  
 Throbbing, pulsating
 In beauty
 Breathing as one
 More life-giving
 Than any sun
  
 A Father, Son &
 Holy Spirit
 Above this world
 They reach to lift, 
 This is their unique gift
 For each of us
  
 So we are blessed
 During the tests
 Of these our lives
 To be not loved 
 By just one
  
 3 hands reach down
 toward the violent sounds
 of our discord and ugly abuse
 of each other
  
 3 somebodies
 To conquer this world
 Help us transcend
 Into their joy & a
 Love which never 
 Ever ends!!
  
   

I pray everyone can have a very God blessed day today. Praise God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. You are completely and 100% loved.
