Light!!

lightgod

Light
Beams, thick shafts
This light
So clear, illuminating
The air
Around me

Enclosed, surrounded
In the middle
I stand
Inside this pure essence
Of light

I look to see, observe
feel
Raise a hand
I too am made
Of light

Mingling, becoming,
Blending
Transfixed, held by,
Composed of the
ephemeral Light

From overhead.
Until
I join, melt into
The material falling
From above

No longer separate,
Joined now,
Together with,
No longer the I
Of me

Only the us
Of we, together
I stand
Within the essence of
You

Every human on this planet has an inner need to be joined with our Creator. We are made of the same eternal spiritual material as our Father. We get ourselves into trouble when we go trying to meet that need in the wrong places: sex, alcohol, drugs, ego, temporary pleasure. Only a close, intimate relationship with Him can give the fulfillment, joy and contentment that only He can give. Praise God!!

A Key and a Lock

locknkey

We were created by Love, through Love and for Love’s own pleasure. God created us because He was so full of goodness it could not be contained. So, He wanted to share all of Himself with someone. God is a giver and literally needs nothing from us. He already lives in perfect harmony with God the Son and God, the Holy Spirit. I believe writer/pastor Timothy Keller called it their dance of perfect harmony in one of his books.

God is the key, we are the lock waiting to be unlocked to get to know Him better. He just wants to share all of his beauty and glory with you every day. Won’t you take the time to get to know Him better? He can be found within the pages of the Bible, waiting for you to get to know Him. It is a truly amazing book.

Ownership?

In America we have become a nation of entitlement. People feel like they are entitled to everything the earth can produce, but the truth is we actually own nothing of this earth. We are just very temporarily using God’s property. God owns all of it for the ‘earth is the Lord’s and the fullness therein’. God owns every atom, molecule, square inch, every heartbeat, every breath on it because He made all of it and us. He owns us and can do with us whatever He desires. Fortunately for us, He is trying to love us into Paradise with Himself. John the Baptist said ‘He can raise up children of Abraham from the stones’. He is in control of everything.

Today women  in this country even think they’re entitled to kill their own unborn children while still in the womb, and so many of the ones we let live we don’t try to teach them about Christ, God and the Holy Spirit at all. No wonder they feel so lost. They have no moral compass by which to steer their lives. We don’t even try to hold our marriages together for the sake of our own little babies! Don’t think as a nation we will not have to answer for this before the Living God.

Our country is in trouble spiritually. We should all get down on our knees before the Living God, praise Him and beg for forgiveness. We are so blessed that He is the most loving, kindest and most forgiving Spirit in existence. Praise God!!

Colors of Infinity

Infinity’s Colors
(Joy of Paradise)

Floating, hair caressing water’s top
And my cheek
In waters,
Colors of gold, orange, silver veins
Multi-hues of your peace, joy, love
Beauty able to be restrained only by the
Non-limits of infinity

Colors pour, wash across your face
Delineating every detail,
as liquids flow down one cheek,
you smile,
leaving me to know it was worth it all

each teardrop, struggle, arrow from
a now-defeated enemy, nothing
compares to this Paradise of Your Glory

none of our weak efforts to describe,
no music, artwork, poem, prose to tell
came one milliliter within
the mark of describing Yourself

Unlimited, uncreated, only You decide,
Form your thoughts, wishes, desires,
Love unlimited, Perfection non-existent
Outside of Yourself

Our job is to watch, stare, take pleasure
In You, a universe awash in Beauty
And worship, reflect your infinitude
back to others surrounding us,
Pulsating, throbbing with your life,
Created from Your desire to share this energy,
Beauty of Unending Life!!

God is not small and wants to give us Himself and His Paradise. Live for that. Let Christ direct your life into Himself and His Love, Joy, Peace for you and this world! Praise God!! May He bless your day!!

Revival!!

Revival #2

Shivers, down
My spine, back of
The body
Starting slowly
Gently
Only quivers at first.

Words whispered
Unseen, out of air
Into my empty ears
Beginnings of
Heart songs of Paradise

I have known you
From days of old,
My youth
Felt your presence
Only a skin’s depth
Away in a blue sky.

Power unseen but
Spirit felt
Always on the move
Looking, seeking
To save & bring home
Every lost child

Your voice speaks
At first, then roaring
Coaxing, next pushing,
Bring in the rest
This may be our test
We are not the only ones,
Alone here in His love

Beginnings, urgings
From above, a fire,
Slow trickles at first
Then a volcano trembling
Desiring, waiting to explode
To give us what we need
If we will only implant our desires
within its will

Waiting to create a deep
Burning, this passion,
Within the chest and soul
To become what
He died for,
A Holy family

Lost ones restored to
Spread, tell,
His story of rebirth
Placed once again
Within His womb
Of Love

So, let us be
Different, from
An insane world
Leaning only on
Its own bleak weakness to survive

I pray for Revival in the American churches. Praise God!!

Wouldn’t you like to see. . . . ???

jesus'gloryWouldn’t you like to see Utopia? Wouldn’t we all like to see a world without pain, suffering, disagreements, wars, orphans living on the streets with nothing? We have been promised, assured we will live in such a Utopia if we believe in, try to emulate the historically documented Jesus of Nazareth.

It will begin with a revived American church. Our country leads the world in almost everything and so do our churches or they should at least try. Wouldn’t you like to see a church less divided among itself, one with more influence over the world and its culture rather than the other way around with the culture having more influence over God’s living, holy church??

I would love to see revival in the American churches. I pray for revival with more of the power of the Holy Spirit alive and well in our spiritual family. I pray for a lower divorce rate in our churches, a church less caught up in lusting after money and material possessions and one that lusts after Christ more instead. I pray for a church that is less caught up in fitting in with the world and more concerned with standing up and being different from the world’s standards. I pray for a church like the first century one that is willing to go and sell something, lay the money at the feet of our church leaders in order to help the poor and more needy in God’s family. I pray for a church whose true glory is the glory of the living Christ!

May God bless your day. Praise God!!!

 

Victory!!!

fractalovercomeworld#2overcomeworld#3

When Christ died on that cross our Victory was assured. The same power that raised Him out of that cold, dark grave wants to come and live inside of you, His Holy Spirit. The more we step out of the way and let this Spirit live in us, the more of His Victory over this world you will experience.

Were you a victim of abuse? Were you taught by parents to be an alcoholic, drug addict? Were you taught to be irresponsible with money, mean-hearted, negative, hypercritical? You do not have to be caught up in any of that anymore. Christ can give you His overcoming power to leave all of that behind you and step into His Victory!! He has overcome all the problems of this world, and can give you the power to overcome them also!!

He did that for me and will for you. I have had to have help, but do not be afraid to ask for help. Become a part of his spiritual family somewhere (church) and let them help you as well. Praise God for his unfailing love, mercy, compassion, grace and forgiveness. May you have a blessed day!!

Tears

crystaltears

Tears

Crystal tears
Polished with pain
Glisten, shine
Amidst life’s
Long, twisting lanes

Chimes in wind
Tinkling with sound
They slip, slide
Fall to ground.

Call out my name
These harbingers,
Past pains warn
Of future hurts

No one escapes
Travails, sorrows
We glide forward
Unknown indeed are
All tomorrows

Only one promise
Stands so clear
Voiced from heaven
To mortals so mere

Look up, see
My arms await
Each who tries to follow
My beckoning Son through
These opened gates

My tears also fall
To soak a thirsty earth
For all my lost children
Who turn their backs
On their gift of
this glorious new birth!

 

Daily Distractions

GodvsSatan

You have an ancient enemy, Satan, the devil, whatever word, both are the same. He is the father of all lies, and he wants to distract you, however he can, to take your attention off of your real created purpose which is to be in intimate fellowship with your beautiful, wonderful living Creator God. We are to be reflections of His beauty, love and glory to the rest of His creation. Focus. He will use anything, lust for money, love, ego, attention. Don’t let him deter or distract you. God wants to share all of His beauty with you and let you find Him and get to know Him. Praise God!!
