Troubled Soul

 
 
 Troubled Soul
  
 Troubled Soul,
 Troubled Soul,
 Do not sit 
 In the darkness’s glow
 It’s angry face
 Leaves only the sting
 And disgrace
 Of rejection
  
 Sitting in a brackish cell
 Formed by cruelty 
 Coming only from hell
 Troubled Soul
 Hear these words
 For your pain there
 Is a certain cure
  
 Above this darkened
 Black air
 Over your bowed head
 And tangled hair
 A small light glows
 Comes from Heaven
 To let you know
  
 There is a someone
 Who knows your name
 Wishes to discharge your pain
 Forever
 Christ loves your heart
 Which has sat in the dark
 For too long
  
 So raise your head
 Listen to every word 
 Being said
 Inside your spirit
 He will implant His own
 There His truest Love
 & Graces
 Will forever be sown!
   

Sacrifice

If you are not willing to sacrifice anything (time, energy, Money, pleasure) to follow Christ then you do not love Him.

John 14:15 15If you love me, keep my commands.

Matt 16:24 Then Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. 25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.  26What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

Intimacy

  
Intimacy
  
 A language lips will
 Never know
 Holds me enthralled
 From crown to toes
  
 My inner essence flames
 Held inside this fleshly cage
 Consumed at last yet held
 Until the coming of a greater age
  
 My being vibrates 
 With your love, O’ Lord
 As your fingers stroke & fan
 The light of life within
 Held in the center of your hand
 Where all true Joy & Peace begin 

Dull Ache

 
 
 
 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’.
