New Day!

New Day!

Rushing, crashing
Waves of life
Come washing over me
From a tumultuous,
Increasingly treacherous sea!

Brokenness comes into 
The line of the shore
With a raging, angry
Dangerous roar
What is it that they want
My frail, tiny boat
At last
To completely swamp?

For this is what it seems
As to my craft I cling
And scream
Those waves keep 
Coming,
Coming
In large volumes,
Positively reams
Sent by that satan
That oh so ancient enemy

But of this life he 
Will not have the last word
Because as quickly as he comes
Away will he be turned
By a larger, grander, 
More Powerful Ship
Will he be
Destroyed,
Forever spurned 

With the unfolding of just one
Bright, white sail
satan is completely undone, 

Rising in a brighter boat
Is God’s Only Son
Golden on the horizon
As a rapidly rising sun
In Pure Joy,
That New Day of our
Lord & King has finally 
and at last come!!!

Lost World

Lost World

who would want to live
in a world without
God’s purpose
Where boundaries have no name
each human heart
choses the beginning
of its own tumultuous game

no structure
no solidity
only constant fluidity
rampant running 
from one idea to another
as they lay sunning
on rocks just waiting
another innocent
to be baiting
not realizing each stone
carries the lust of 
each heart’s own depravity

guidelines are good
standing out from the crowds 
as they should
but just make sure they come
from God’s reliable source
with them you may run
a more worthy course
of purpose
not caught in a nervous circus
so stay away from the
darkened service
of a ‘Lost World’

Listen

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!

Miracle

What would cause
A god
Of any kind
Rich, wealthy
Most sublime

To step 
From His perfection’s
Heaven 
To literally
Slum
With us?

This was no impulse
Done with intent
A driven purpose
Such a love
Beyond robust!
So this is the miracle
For us!

That one so 
Wondrous
Of beauty,
Power
Would step 
Down 
To save us
From a most dreadful
Hour 

For without this
Miracle
Only a place most
Terrible
Awaited

So do not 
Hesitate
Accept what
Christ
Longs to give
A better 
Fate 

Life 
With His 
Beauty
Into
Infinity!

Rushes

Life rushes
Sometimes it
Even crushes
Until hearts stop
Breathing ceases
& we see,
Are released
From our dulled shell

To another place
Us You will send
Even as we
Our bodies lend
Back to the dust

We need to prepare
So our spirits
May we share
With Yours
At last
To enjoy
Rejoice

Infinity
Only a beginning
Of pure joy
So I implore
I ask
Do not let this
Forever pass
Your spirit by!

eems more & more every day
Crazy holds ever growing, greater sway
Over many beautiful lands

A
s evil seems to grow
Larger & larger it shows
Its ugly, abnormal face

V
oraciously does it run
From setting sun to sun
It strains to destroy each life

I
ncreasing in its vehemence
I would be much remiss
If I did not mention this

O
nly Christ can save our world
This is not a foolish outburst
Of only random, errant words

R
evealing the truth is His follower’s job
So many may not be left in the dark to sob
As He returns to save as many as He may
Restoring to His purer, much brighter day!
