Original Purpose

Original Purpose

What seems almost 
Like an eternity ago
Before that moon 
Cast its silver glow
Powerful, in joy
Words were spoken
Out of dark nothingness
A world was begotten

An all-powerful Creator
Because He loved 
The idea of us so much
Reached down and
With a single touch
Started His own universe

With care and a little time
Embarked upon a thought-out plan
Someones in His image made
To share all of their nights & days
In His Joy & Presence

That original purpose, that plan
Was for all of His creation
Sky, earth, animals and man
To share in His Glory
That fantastic, stupendous Beauty

That loves everyone the same
Even enemies get to watch
His magnificent displays
Of love, mercy, justice, kindness
& that miraculous forgiveness

& us?
Well, we were meant to be
For all of His creation to see
Image bearers of the same
His power, light, glory & 
Holy, beautiful, name

But we failed,
Rebelled as the ancient tale
Written in a Holy Book is told
To someone else our souls were sold
And evil entered our lives

Separated, lost

Until we were given

A second chance

But it came at the highest cost


To return us to that 
Original purpose
Shed his blood to return
To us His Glory
So please pick up the Book
And read the most beautiful
Of all earth’s written stories!

Plagiarizing God

Plagiarizing God
(good or bad?)

Plagiarizing may be
Either good or bad
To copy or imitate
Often is a form 
of highest praise
Means someone sees you
Toward you turns their gaze

Sadly, however, often times
For authority, ownership 
Plagiarizers only come to steal
From the original, what is the real
Of identity, things or power

When we, as man, think or say
We carry the highest dominion
In a vast, still unknown universe
Is not that plagiarizing
Passing ourselves off as 
Someone we are not?
Do we think from the authentic,
Only GOD that is real
We can really steal
His divinity, sovereignty over us?

We tried that in a garden
It did not work
Never will
Even today we try to shirk 
Shun the destructive pain
We have caused 
By trying to deny, steal
God’s power, His Holy Name

We are not our own gods
A universe, this planet 
Even our own bodies
None of this did we create
Nor can we control it
That claim to fame
On our heads
Will never fit

So if you must plagiarize God
Do it the right way
It is okay to copy Him
By letting go of yourself
Over your soul let Him win
Let Him stamp His own image
And pay the right kind of homage
To a stupendous, living, breathing
Magnificent & loving King!

Couldn’t resist taking some pictures yesterday along our greenway which runs beside a river. The fresh springs greens of the leaves and grass are just so much more intense this time of year. I captured a few of the wildflowers starting to come in along with a few new families I saw swimming in the river. Hope everyone has a very blessed Sunday and Praise God for the beauty of His earth!

Love is a Someone

Love is a Someone

Not some ethereal
Idea floating
In darkest space
Or only a condition
Or nirvana, a state
You will achieve
If your life with
You decide to lace

Love is a 
This Holy, Glorious
Yaweh GOD
Known, written of
Taught, spoken of
From of old
Of Him it is said
Very often told,
HE is LOVE!!!

All Love,
Good things 
Flow down from
The Father of the
Heavenly lights
His Holy might
Holds this universe
& us

Without Him
There would be
No Love
Without Him 
Heaven would be just
Another empty space
Maybe like earth 
It would even taste!

So, look above
He waits to be found
He wants you to
Know this love
He is pouring down
Around us all
You just have to 
Heed the call
Open your heart 
A new life to win
Let your re-creation begin!!
