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!


To the Core

To the Core

Muddied, bruised, 
Now rotted to the core
To renew, revive, re-create
This shell’s old life 
Truly for us is an impossible chore
It would take a Miracle

Needed is more power
Than mere humans possess
Only hands with greatest strength to bless
Can raise from the dead
Words more powerful than mine
Would surely have to be said

Only God can revive from 
From death’s deepest sleep
All and any forms of life
This earth may hold or keep
With Loves’ greatest power
Purest eternity’s showers
And our abiding Faith
No longer will death ever again
Be able to cause anyone to weep!

Big Deal!

A Big Deal

To an orphan such
As I
One of the biggest deals
I can spy
Is 

For someone to desire
Cannot lift them higher
Than to want to be
My parent

And that is exactly 
What God, the Holy Lord
Creator
Wants to be 
For each & everyone
You are able to see

Wants to be your Father
Daddy, Papa
Wants every soul to gather
Under His wings forever
For all of eternity

No small trickle
Wave after wave rushing
Toward you pushing
Torrential flood
Of perfection’s love

So step into the flow
Take the time to 
Get to know
The One & Only God
Who loves you the most
It’s the biggest, best deal 
This world will ever see!

A New Box

A New Box

We substitute
Tendency to loot
From Box to 
Box
Compartmentalizing
Our way 
Thru each & every
Day

A Box for home
A Box for work
A Box for fun
Then 
the tiniest, tiniest box 
Finally for our spirit
& God

So in they go
Into the larger Boxes
What we believe to be
Major spaces of our lives
But the most important parts
We then minimalize

Why do we put God 
In a box so tiny
After all He is large
Runs a universe 
So very shiny

With suns & moons
Black holes
Created endless numbers
Of souls
Let Him have all
Your Boxes

So give it a
Shot
Take God out
Of that smallest
Box

Pour the contents
Of all your Boxes
Into God’s large one
In that way
They might all 
Become the same

He & His Son
Will be sure to run
Each Box’s contents
With only
The very best of intents
And extreme care
For He only wants to share
Himself,
that Ultimate Paradise
With you!
