One Heartbeat

artforoneheartbeat

One Heartbeat

Entombed within
Dank, wet walls of
This pit
I sit alone,
enshrouded by
thick mists of
darkness.

Hopelessness, despair
Fear
Making dead weights
Covering my shoulders,
My forehead,
I cannot lift my eyes
Above the foe,

The enemy who seeks
To destroy, devour
My very self.
Until
A small glimmer begins
To glow and grow
Becoming

The light within.
Stronger it burns.
It is from of old,
That first taste
of your love
almost extinguished
just not Yet.

It calls your name,
This light,
Repeating it soundlessly
The heart
Perceives the source
Strength is given
To look up.

Your love reaches
Down
From Your Paradise
Eternal
I see your face
whisper your name,
Yeshua!

Dark chains
Fall off
Released from my enemy’s
Hot hate
Rising, lifting
Carried upon the force
Of your shoulders

To sit enthroned
In heavenly places
Of purest Joy
Secure in this knowledge
I now embrace,
Not for One Heartbeat
was I ever alone.

Choice

artforchoice#3

Choice

Mindlessly, I wander
Demanding Culture shaping
My thoughts
Loudly it screams
TV, movies,
Magazines

Until
One moment of a
Tap
On the shoulder
A voice whispers
Stop.

Into the heart
It speaks
You have a
Choice
You are loved
From above

Entirely up to
You
Another way exists
To guide,
Live by, above the
Roaring Mass Confusion.

Transcendent above
All life below,
A Savior speaks
Your name
Lovingly

Holds out the keys
To joy
Or pain, but
The choice
Is left to
You

Keys to
Paradise
or
Hell
He holds in His
Hands
You have free will.
this choice
is entirely, totally,
completely
up to You.

God created us with free will in order to give us the ability to love. Love is an act of the will not just an emotion. Desiring to be loved, He will not force His way into your heart. He leaves that choice up to you. Have a blessed day. Praise God!!

Return to Me!

ReturntomeArt

 

Return to Me!

I hold out my hands
Only love warms,
Fills
My heart of hearts
I long for you

Return to me
O child of my love
Return to me
Bliss awaits, safety,

Rest for every
All who return
To the embrace
Of my arms.

Give up the illusions
Of a world gone mad
Drunk, full of lust for
Only itself

Deluded by a dark
Voice calling
From the slime
Pits of hell

You know him
Look away
See only me &
I will return to you.

Come home
Come home
Follow my Grace
This warm embrace

Waiting for
You. I await,
Calling your
Name ceaselessly.

Winter’s Lace

 

Winter’s Lace

Ice, glass crystals
Glued in place
Temporarily awaiting
The heat to loosen
Their hold

On long, loose limbs
Fingers reaching
Straining toward
The Divine infinity
Overhead

Covered in winter’s
White, bright lace
bitter to the touch
Yet its cold beauty warms
the soul.

We Dream

artwedream

 

We Dream

This dream, only a sigh,
Imperfect as of yet on
this side of the waters,
we stand waiting,
to be departed,
Soon, but hoping not too soon
until we finish the singing of this life’s song.

Obliterate my senses, my knowledge
So I no longer feel, see, taste,
In order to forget this world.
We dream, long, lust for
That other side of the water,
That other shore whose name,
As of yet, only Whispers
within my heart.

We dream a dream unseen but
Felt
inside, this hidden glory.
We speak of and seek for this
Our never-ending story.

May God bless your day!

Martyr

artmartyr

Martyr

White lipped martyr
Entrenched,
Led, fed by fire of
the Spirit
Chains, dark breath of
Ignorance,
At your hands and feet

Satan howls, enslaving
The weak, deluded,
Hot grasp of hell
Around their throats
Calling for your demise,
He dances
Within his dark delight

Until a light breaks
Between grey clouds
Rumblings begin to
Shake the earth
Beneath unseeing feet
Still the cries rise
To champion your death

You raise your eyes
Skin as ashen as the clouds
A warm wind catches, lifts
Damp curls off a cheek
This breeze whispers,
Carries a voice, your name,
Speaks of heaven’s promises

A flame is struck
Wood ignites, flames
Move upward
Voracious tongues of
Pain, heat
Yet, unseen below,
Glory reaches down

Hope releases, disappears
Into a new reality
Within the hot smoke
Of hate
Bliss is born and
Rises
On fresh, living wings of ecstasy!

No matter what you face on this earth, God will go through it with you. We just have to trust, have faith that He is there. This is not our permanent home. We are only temporarily here. In 1st Peter, Peter says we are to live as foreigners here. God loves you and wants you in enjoy His presence in Paradise forever. Praise God!!

 

Essence

Essence

Essence of blood
Released from
A throne above
Soft, silky to
The touch
But each drop contains
A liquid fire

Burning, consuming, expanding
Enters the human
Heart
Rising, flaming up to
Leap to life upon its altar,
A burning release of passion

Ardor sent from heaven
To awaken the within
Of our souls
To purpose, new life,
overflowing joy dancing
among the flames

Multiplying, intensifying
Man’s weak embers
Into an ever rising
Song-lit flame
To ascend the skies
and join their Savior’s
Red flowing passion

drop by drop
it descended,
those red liquid flames
dripping, covering a darkened earth
hearts revive,
encapsulated by
this merciful King’s gift
within the fire of an
awakened life

Had a beautiful sunrise this morning. Pictures above are of that. Praise God!!

Light!!

lightgod

Light
Beams, thick shafts
This light
So clear, illuminating
The air
Around me

Enclosed, surrounded
In the middle
I stand
Inside this pure essence
Of light

I look to see, observe
feel
Raise a hand
I too am made
Of light

Mingling, becoming,
Blending
Transfixed, held by,
Composed of the
ephemeral Light

From overhead.
Until
I join, melt into
The material falling
From above

No longer separate,
Joined now,
Together with,
No longer the I
Of me

Only the us
Of we, together
I stand
Within the essence of
You

Every human on this planet has an inner need to be joined with our Creator. We are made of the same eternal spiritual material as our Father. We get ourselves into trouble when we go trying to meet that need in the wrong places: sex, alcohol, drugs, ego, temporary pleasure. Only a close, intimate relationship with Him can give the fulfillment, joy and contentment that only He can give. Praise God!!

Colors of Infinity

artworkinfinityscolors

Infinity’s Colors
(Joy of Paradise)

Floating, hair caressing water’s top
And my cheek
In waters,
Colors of gold, orange, silver veins
Multi-hues of your peace, joy, love
Beauty able to be restrained only by the
Non-limits of infinity

Colors pour, wash across your face
Delineating every detail,
as liquids flow down one cheek,
you smile,
leaving me to know it was worth it all

each teardrop, struggle, arrow from
a now-defeated enemy, nothing
compares to this Paradise of Your Glory

none of our weak efforts to describe,
no music, artwork, poem, prose to tell
came one milliliter within
the mark of describing Yourself

Unlimited, uncreated, only You decide,
Form your thoughts, wishes, desires,
Love unlimited, Perfection non-existent
Outside of Yourself

Our job is to watch, stare, take pleasure
In You, a universe awash in Beauty
And worship, reflect your infinitude
back to others surrounding us,
Pulsating, throbbing with your life,
Created from Your desire to share this energy,
Beauty of Unending Life!!

God is not small and wants to give us Himself and His Paradise. Live for that. Let Christ direct your life into Himself and His Love, Joy, Peace for you and this world! Praise God!! May He bless your day!!
