Like A Sore Thumb

Like A Sore Thumb

Let me say to begin
Never were we meant
To fit in
Our most gracious leader
Was despised
Then & now by a world that denies
His existence!

In pain He tried to lead
And with loving words
Our souls will feed
But on us Heaven will make
Some demands
If you love me, you will obey
My commands
He tells us

Christ’s church, family, 
Is meant to be
And is to be seen
As different from the world so lost
We are to follow His example
For our lives no matter what it costs

So we are to walk, talk, 
Eat, sleep, even smell
Different from a world
Which only can tell
Of satan’s acidic corruption
That insidious, deceitful destruction
Of the human soul
Christ came to release us 
From all that demonic control!

So, live in it, but be not of it
We are to stick out as a sore thumb
So a generation thru you may come
To know the living Christ
To be the light, the salt
To receive His true call!

Shake off satan’s chains of darkness
Struggle, forge ahead, do your best
Reach for Christ
And thru His total bodily sacrifice
On a bloody Roman cross
Count all worldly gain a loss
And receive His Paradise!!

 In the Beginning
 Chronicle  I
  
  
 In the beginning there
 Was nothing outside of Heaven
 So, in the beginning
 God decided
 To create
 For Himself
 A World
  
 He hummed, “You know, Son
 We have so much to share
 Of kindness
 Love, joy
 Sometimes I feel
 Like
 I might explode
 Or implode
 I cannot hold
 It all in
 any longer.”
  
 So with a whirl
 And a twirl
 And a small jiggle
 Or was it a wiggle
 God created
 His earth.
   
 Gleaming, shining 
 With life
 It glowed
 Just to show
 Its Creator’s Glory, 
 This story of 
 His Love
 Slowly, He stroked
 With one gentle hand
 The lion’s mane.
 “Look, it’s heart beats
 I think I just
 Might keep 
 This one.
 But you know what 
 I think I need me
 A Man.”
  
 “What is a man, Father?”
 “Just watch.”
 He blew on the dust
 And with one single thrust
 Of one finger
 He raised him from the ground.
  
 God smiled.
 Happy, pleased and joyful,
 He turned to his newest son,
 “Welcome to life, Adam,
 And this,
 Your new Paradise!”
