So Forget!

So Forget!

A world barges in
Rude & loud, using force
Seeking its own way
To get me off my course
From you, Lord Christ

So,
On I must struggle
To stay away
From seeking its
Loud, belligerent way
&
listen to your gentle voice
instead

So, F O R G E T
Your large house
Your sleek, ramblings cars
Persistent pleasure seeking
In Him only
Am I believing!
Toward His cross
Am I retreating!
Toward a better life
& a Living Son’s Paradise!!!

Three Great Lies

Three Great Lies

Three great lies pervade the air
Most of these people to hear do not care
So to be honest, of these three
If you will forgive,
I will try, dare to share

An enemy, that satan, first will tell you
Each, every & of us, all,
(He’s been struggling to push this
Since in a garden we had our great fall)
It is,
There is no god, he does not exist

The second one does not bring so much bliss
It is
God does not love you even if He does exist
This is one which we must fully resist
If God does not love, then why the cross
Where for Him & an Eternal Son,
Was such an extreme & blood-filled cost?

And last but most certainly not the least
God is not all-powerful, not in full control
For millennia this lie has unequivocally been sold
& told to a dark & dying world
Man is just as smart & able his own destiny
To control

Such things get determinedly pushed
More today than I’ve ever seen
In this chaotic world’s quest to reach
For whatever in one heartbeat
At any particular moment is deemed
For us to be pleasant

The truth?, 
We are not our own god
Never have been, never will we be
Truth stands knocking
If you will dare to see
The Eternal, All-Powerful Truth,
Perfection,
God holds within His Loving Hand
Ready & willing to be received
(If you choose)
By each woman, child or man!!

In the Above

In The Above

In the above, those celestial skies
Surely, God must shake His head & sigh
‘Will they never learn’?
He watches as we all despise
His love’s most generous guidelines
But still I suppose
As only He most assuredly knows
& so forward & on He goes
Still trying our souls to win
Keep us from that damning sin
Of our total & defiant rebellion

But, 
Lucky for us,
Our God is not a quitter
We are the ones 
Who turn our backs & run
From
His wonderful perfect grace
Reflected in Beauty’s Love on His Face

So,
Be different from the rest
Do not put God to the test
Stay, live to enjoy
Those Eternal Pleasures in store
Between Infinity’s Gates they await!

What does it really mean
All of these different scenes
From so many different peoples
Carrying the weight of our faults
Why does not the world just topple
At times they seem so unstoppable
These, our chaotic insanities

For each of us the final rest
Comes forth only through our death
So I sigh
Look upward
Try to turn from all the lies

Please do not let yourself be deceived
Each & every soul will receive
What for themselves they chose,
In their life’s walk & daily plans
Whether to accept or reject
               CHRIST,
Our God’s Living Son of Man!

To Mars?

To Mars?

Our bodies were not made
To live on Mars
Are there not problems enough 
To solve on this planet
Revolving as it does amidst
The burning stars?

Curiosity and learning is one thing
But 
What about curiosity for eternity, God, Christ,
the destiny that awaits in His Paradise

Drawing nearer to our Creator
This God who leaned so close
Took on our form, our flesh
To withstand our cruelty’s test
Of dying on a bloodied cross

So would not our time be better spent
If to our time and energies we lent
The pursuit, reaching for the reality
of the Universe’s space
And went instead in search
of our Lord Creator’s face?

Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands

Another Level


There is another level to existence
Unseen but not entirely unknown
Ever since we humans walked 
Upon this spinning planet so green
lived under its sun, breathed in its air, 
Of other beings were we fully aware
this other side was completely seen

Until we rebelled against its Leader
The One completely in charge
Ran everything, owned everything,
Loved everything & everyone
Decided to be our own Leader
Replaced God with man
Pushed Him aside to follow a deceiver
And the self’s desires

A schism, a chasm was created
Across which we cannot go
Now we turn our backs, harden the heart
To the things we should strive to know
Build webs of cables, darkened lies
Given by someone who only strives
To bring about our destruction 

Entangled in this deceit, 
We now ignore what we once knew
We encase our hearts in stone
Refusing to see the reality of You
The Owner, Creator, Lord & Master
(gave His life on our cruel cross)
Of this beautifully created Universe!
