Essence

Essence

Essence of blood
Released from
A throne above
Soft, silky to
The touch
But each drop contains
A liquid fire

Burning, consuming, expanding
Enters the human
Heart
Rising, flaming up to
Leap to life upon its altar,
A burning release of passion

Ardor sent from heaven
To awaken the within
Of our souls
To purpose, new life,
overflowing joy dancing
among the flames

Multiplying, intensifying
Man’s weak embers
Into an ever rising
Song-lit flame
To ascend the skies
and join their Savior’s
Red flowing passion

drop by drop
it descended,
those red liquid flames
dripping, covering a darkened earth
hearts revive,
encapsulated by
this merciful King’s gift
within the fire of an
awakened life

Had a beautiful sunrise this morning. Pictures above are of that. 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.

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!!

New Year, New Life!

whitefractual (2)

New Life

Light, radiance unequaled
Beams, diffuses, emanates from
a center
This light moves, walks forward
Toward me, us, a someone calls
my name, ours

A hand extends, lips smile,
My hand reaches for what is offered &
is Grasped
Within strength’s grip of power,
Inescapable, wonderful, life-giving
Love

Clasped into the heart, chest of
Perfect fulfillment, contentment and
Joy
Unsurpassed, unknown until this
Radiance claims for Himself, His own
Child

So, the question remains for all,
You
Will you accept, do you want
Will you be a part of this life,
Accept or deny
Eternity’s bliss remains, under your
heart’s control

Why would you not want, desire
lust
after perfection, mercy, grace, pleasure
unequaled
on earth’s face, never, ever experienced
anywhere except within the grip of this God,
This Christ!!

 

Rebirth

jesus'glory

Rebirth
It tears at my flesh,
My soul is reborn
Into a world of light.
No more running out of the night.

I thank you Gracious Lord again
For this glory of new life.
It runs downhill and up
In endless joyful flight!

 

I’ve talked before about dreams God has given me in the past. They’re always so vivid in color and details and so beautiful. I had another one a few nights ago. I was walking with Jesus down a street, and the sense of joy was so overwhelming. He was sharing His joy with me. It was fantastic. Always is. Anyway, we were walking down the street. I had sort of blondish hair, my hair is naturally dark although at my age I’m almost completely grey, and I was dressed very casually, more bohemian. We were walking down the street. People were walking by, and we were just sharing His joy with them, talking to them. It was a great dream.
My resolution for the beginning of this new year is to be reborn. The type of rebirth that Christ told Nicodemus about, to be born of water and the Spirit. I feel a need for this. I was born into darkness from which He has saved me. I pray you could get to know your Savior better this year also. He really is fantastic, beautiful and loves you so overwhelmingly! In Christ’s name Amen. Praise God!!

 

Imagine!

artforImagine

Imagine

Throne, glistening,
Unapproachable
Glory, brilliant light,
Beauty, colors of infinity

Sitting in Your place
Love, forgiveness
implanted on your face
desperate need at your feet

screaming out your name
transcendent above
this noise, chaos,
darkness, ignorant rebellion

a universe held within
your hand
no longer wishing to
follow your commands

One spirit asks,
You would leave all
This!
Remember their past

We adore you, Lord
Do not leave
We will do anything
Your sovereign will to please

But, this perpetual glory
Cannot be restrained.
I cannot ignore their grief
Their sorrow or their pain

The multitudes acquiesce
And bow
Ready to submit their wills
Left only to guess

So He lays aside, removes
A crown
Glistening, reflecting each
Star, lights which abound

Only in this eternity of
Ecstasy, bliss,
Adoration, worship.
Giving His Father one last
Kiss

One last touch of a
Father’s hand
As they prepare to face the
Agony of this plan

Silence falls, all heaven
Stops
Wondering, hoping
As He bends to drop
Below.

So, with shepherds, beasts
Within a barn’s dirty stall
A Savior releases glory
taking up the saving,
redeeming His creation
from its fall.

Puddles

artforpuddles

 

Puddles

Human puddles
On the ground
Hoping, waiting
Longing to be found

Downward, fingers reach
To stir
Moving, rippling
empowering to occur

Unusual things, miracles
So to speak
Causing, giving strength
even to the lost and weak

Strength flows down
Into this wet ground
My puddle moves, flows
Dare I give voice, a sound

His hand pulls upward
I rise
New in spirit, waiting
To be apprised

New life is born
To walk in His glory
So do not be afraid
To tell your story

Of love, glory
Holiness
Given just to you
Speak your words
Tell of Christ’s rescue
allow the others
to once again be born anew!

May God bless your day!!

Wondrous December!!

starforwondrousnite

Couldn’t resist a poem for the first day of the month of December, Christ’s birth month. Praise God!!

Wondrous Night

Wondrous night
Holy Night
Twinkle of a star
Led men to the
Wonder of a king’s
Bed and might

Sleeping in a barn
A stall
Filled with animal
Wetness and breath
Holiness to save us all

That star still shining
Calls us home
Dulled now by lights
Man-made and hung
Without thought for the one
who saves us from being alone

In the darkness
Raise your head
Look upward to a star
Which still points
To the One who left
A Throne to lie in that bed

Of straw and poverty
Of pain and a torturous death
He loved until his heart
Broke, stopped
Returning home but not until
He gave His final breath

For us, you and I
Do not forget
Look up still to see
A King enthroned
In glory, above that star
Whose life and death
paid your final dark debt
