Abba, Change My Heart! — Pure Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross Change my heart, so that I’m easily bent to Your ways. Flexible to Your Spirit, supple in Your hands, only influenced by Your love. Fully persuaded in Faith, completely yielded to You, and adjusting readily to Your change. I want to please You…Change my heart, Abba. © Crown of Glory International […]

Abba, Change My Heart! — Pure Glory

Rushing

 

 

Rushing

 

Rushing here

Rushing there

People pushing

Looking, searching

Everywhere!

 

We have stress

I understand the tests

We go through everyday

But for a moment

Could we not just stay?

 

To let go

Of the constant

Looking for the

Something

We don’t even know

 

Why or what we

Look for

This constant rushing

Will rob you of

All your joy

 

I cannot stop

You say

Because if I do

Then

I will feel the pain

 

The separation I feel

The need

The hole in my middle

Which continues to bleed

 

We have separated

From the source of life

A living, breathing

God/Creator/Loving Father

He does not wish for us

This terrible, horrible strife

 

We put ourselves thru

Each day we begin anew

With the rushing,

Accumulating of more

More useless things

Less joy

 

So, seek your God

Let go of seeking

Useless idols

Let life be in the being

With, in the presence of

the One who

Can fill the emptiness

And lay your pain to rest

 

John 14:27 My peace I give to you, my peace I leave you. I do not give to you as the world gives. So do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Someone!

ArtforSomeone

 

Someone

Everything comes from

Something

In our case, this world, we,

Came from Someone

With this fact for a moment

Let us just run

 

Universe, spinning

Full of grace

Evolving, rebirthing

From the love light

Emanating from His

Glorious face!

 

So, let us bend the knee

Open the heart fully with

with eyes that see

Our Lord, Creator

Most Divine

And within our hearts

Let Him be reborn

With all His full power

And glory To Shine

Media

Media

Voices crying out

From every street corner

Vying for attention

Willing to grab, garner

In any way, your eyes

 

Which leads to

The heart

The inner you, do not

Let the world

Of you have

That part

 

These voices,

Indiscriminately cry out

Led by the great deceiver

Ceaselessly they shout

 

From

TV, magazines, airwaves

The Internet

The world in chaos

Do not give in, let

Them have your

Thoughts

 

Deluded by the greatest

Destroyer of all life

Father of all lies,

Murderer

Do not give them or him

your time

 

The World & its Media

Walk with blinders

Put on by one more

Clever than man

This Satan,

Do not let him have

Your hand

 

Do not be led

By his cruel heart

Instead give

Christ

That precious part

Of you

Which shall never die

Your spirit,

Created to be

Like the light

Meant to live in, see

God’s eternal glory!

Praise God!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Perfume

 

Perfume

Jasmine, Lilac
Honeysuckle in
Full bloom
Scents of earth
Created by You
Bringing Your Face
Into a closer view

And so, this
Essence
Scent of your
Glory, Beauty
Power
Follows, surrounds
Your Presence

Evidence of this
On Moses’ face
Descending from
The mountain
bearing the mark
Of your Holy Grace

It took a veil
to hide
This Perfume, Glory
That resides,
Surrounds each step
& at Your side

Today let us remove
The veil
Look fully on Your
Glory
Gaze
with deeper longing
Into this cloud

Of your perfume
Sweet scent of
Your Very Self
As we achingly await
To pass through
heaven’s gates
Enveloped by
Your love,
& alive again
in your embrace.

Denial

 

 

denialartDenial

Deny, deny
I turn my back
Then sigh
Wondering why
I am so
Miserable.

On the bed
At night
Toss and turn
I cry
If you are real
Within your face
Light up the sky!

But nothing
There is not a trace
Of anything or
Any One

So I turn back
To the screen
Of my TV
Or the phone
Things I know
I sit alone

Harden the
Heart
Feel nothing
Develop the art
Of pleasure
Seeking

Just one more fix
This pain will
Pass
Seek one more
High
Maybe it will last
This time

So I rush,
Concentrate
On this world
Fix your eyes
On this strange
Green Pearl

Bigger house,
Fancier car,
Is this by far
The best I can do
Or is there really
You?

Endless cycles
They repeat
As I keep
On searching
For that which
Will meet

My greatest
Deepest need
Maybe one more
Piece of food,
Drink, house,
Vacation,

Rushing, seeking,
I perpetuate
This Empty pain
But I refuse to cry out
Your Name
So again, I sigh
And again your
Name I deny.

Matthew 10:33 …whoever denies me before men, I will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

The Trickle Down Effect

artfortrickledown

The Trickle-Down Effect

Life it seems
Does not flow
From Down
Not of the ground
Life’s love flows from
Up above

It is the
Trickle Down Effect
Giving, leaving us
With no reason to regret
Following its
Lovely siren call

God speaks, I listen
Trying to articulate
A few certain words
An effort to follow
His greatest Passion
For His voice to sweetly
And simply be heard

The deceiver may come
Try To intrude
But let me most assuredly say
Satan’s voice with
Love for man
Is never imbued

So, if from Heaven’s
Throne
You hear you name called
Or perhaps whispered,
Listen close with both ears
His voice will always save
From many of life’s falls

Somewhere We All Know

ChristHead#3

 

Somewhere We All Know

Somewhere we all know
Within our hearts
That more glorious here below
Than His infinity’s power
Is the love God forever shows
To each speck, iota of life
In His creation

So, do not be afraid
Of one so powerful
That my mere words
On an empty page
Cannot explain
His Glory

Or love so unending
Infinite, unyielding
I continue to ask
Why?
Why this empowered,
Noble King
Stays faithful

To us, when we
Are unfaithful
Spit in His face
Tell him He does not
Exist,
Accept the blessings
Without blessing
The Great Blessor.

So do not turn away
While it is still your Today
And you may receive
His Grace and mercy
Do not let judgment
Come and find you
Not ready.

Between

Between
Held between
Your face and
dark demons
I wait
My only release
the joy on Your Face.

And so, others they come,
Only a trickle through time
But still they come
And I wait
By your side
Hoping this tide
Will turn and more will
Come.

My enabler, empowered
Master, God and Noble King,
Waiting for Others to follow
And to come.
I know,
But still this waiting chafes against
My skin.

Lust!

artforlust

Lust!

Lust, to
Intensely Desire
Is your name
To create discord,
Discontent
Is your deceitful game.

To make us want
Pleasures
We do not have
For this type of
Wound there is
No magical salve.

Deep it may run
Abscess & ache
nothing on
our green planet heals
This pain no matter
How much you may partake

Of fulfilling your
Lusts
Of each and
Every kind
Its appetite just increases
With indulgences & time.

Worldly lusts leave
One empty, so unstill
Unsatisfied
Until you seek first a higher
Lust that always will fill
Your center’s deepest needs.

We constantly are
Trying to tame
This unquiet restless ache
That only one lust
Can soothe & never
your weary heart break.

A heavenly lust
For a Creator/Father
Endlessly seeking
Each son and daughter
Wandering the earth
To restore to His safekeeping

Each lonely child
Each wounded soul.
His eternal goal
To bring you peace
Safely into the realm of
His Loving Arms
And Heavenly fold.
