Dull Ache A Dull Ache Somewhere In the middle Growing larger No longer little A need more insistent Almost a sharp Pain Then becomes a Joy This, the means You employ To draw me Closer Your Spirit Entices I come to a Sun, Beautiful Light, Perfection Holding only Life Your Purity Your Goodness You breathe Eternity Return to me I will return To you As my Desire Intensifies I wonder When it will Be met This ache This longing We all Within feel This unmet Need We constantly Try to fill With shallow Thrills, Cheap pleasures Life can feel Like walking Uphill With a heavy load Your beauty, God the only real goad To continue Earth As it is now Will never be Utopia, [perfection’s power] Only with Christ’s return Will that For which we Yearn Be Met! Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water’, and ‘God will wipe away every tear from their eyes’.
Still Walking The world Is dead But up & Still walking Around Working, Playing They sound Alive But. . . Without Christ God, their Father Anyone like That Is dead Already In their heads, Hearts, Denying their God They just don’t know it. So many living Without Christ So spiritually, totally Dead So Sad But, with that said, should we not warn Them? To keep them from: The outer darkness, Weeping, wailing Gnashing of teeth Worms that never Die Fire that is never Quenched More than just Once These things Are described Prophets, Christ Himself, Not to be denied Said out of love For Us It is our Responsibility To Warn Not with a tongue So glib But with Loving Hearts & Words As Christ Himself Did Out of His Great Love For Us He warned As you would Warn any child Its hand to keep, Avoid, Not to seek That deadly fire & its Unspeakable Pain.
Matt. 13:49 -50 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mark 9:47-49 And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell where,
the worms that eat them do not die
and the fire is not quenched
Everyone will be salted with fire.
Isaiah 66:24 And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.”
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!

Swallowed by the Sun The Sun That Fiery burning orb Of our earth he is the lord For surely, all life here below without its heated glow Would die Be dark Encrusted by the cold Death for every plant, animal, Would soon ensue Even for me & you For sure It is a paradox Yet, Swallowed by the sun No one could survive Burnt to a crisp I most assuredly would die However. . . , There is another sun More glorious than you To be swallowed By this SON Only brings us to Love, joy PEACE Beyond my poor Ability To see Or Understand So swallow me Lord Jesus Engulf me in your glory It is my same old story.

The Flying V It flies, zooms Moving so fast At first I cannot see What this flying Abstraction, monstrosity Must be It is a flying V! It moves, zips With so much speed I cannot see Its shape So I reach an arm Upward To reach for its tip At firsts it eludes But I continue to Pursue Until I reach Triumphant Into the air Then turn to stare At what lies Trembling Within my hands It is the letter V Well, this was not Within my day’s plan! Never would I have guessed If I had been put to the test That such a symbol Would belong To such as I What could this mean Then I too began to tremble Until a hand Reached from behind It is for you a sign A man smiled As he spoke Do you not see What this flying V Stands for? I shook my head No. As He spoke His Words were slow Listen carefully He said And I will show Its meaning He removed His robe His body was scarred His perfect flesh Had been deeply marred Yes, my flesh was Defaced I died in disgrace For you Yet within my nail-scarred Hands I hold the Promised Land Waiting for you It takes a deep belief Faith in me This is for your Most sincere relief From your own Sin No more will it win Control I destroyed that Darkness The hold It had on you This V is a sign Of my complete Victory Over all that enslaved Each child of mine I saved the day No more will hell Or death have its way With you As I watched His arms He raised In that perfect stance Of old It took only one glance For me to know Over His head His arms they formed that Perfect V On display For everyone forever & always to see!! And I could see Of that which He spoke He had removed Destroyed That darkest of yokes My sin
Judgement Death comes to all Separation of our spirit From the flesh Instituted by our fall From His grace Turned out of a Paradise And away from His face However, God Still desires Into His kingdom everyone To come His planet Even now awash in His love But there will Be a day Christ did say When He returns To light the way To His New Earth A separation Will occur The Sheep, Those he will keep In His love But with a Holy shout The goats Will be thrown out Into the darkness Where satan awaits Between the fiery gates It is your choice To either praise, worship & rejoice In your Creator/Father/ God Do it now, While among the living do the giving, Loving, Sacrificing do not be caught unaware do not miss your share of His Paradise Choose to go the Right way In this you do have The final say Do not reject Your God He never rejects Any feeble start So !TODAY!

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?
I feel like I feel like A leaf, A snowflake Life goes by so fast Like peering in a looking glass Then you step away What was it that you, God, Had in mind When you first thought of Me Was it to rhyme a line So they perhaps might See Your Face? Better, clearer, Clearer, clearer So they might Draw nearer, Nearer, nearer To You? Never will I know All answers This side of the grave Questions will there Always be As on I in frailness go.
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!
