Wanted to pay
debts of gratitude.
There was a call from evergreens,
he was not ready to go.
Standing in pit of snakes
he was preparing himself for a random fang,
throat like a blue-bird
waiting for a song.
The solid waste of numerals
across the thinking,
developed plaques, while philosophy
was accepting innovation.
The authority had started
reading the couplets.
Glory came earlier
sea cracked into shells.
These old years that i aged
an old oak to the string
it glowed those sunflowers did
as i rise from dawn to dusk
i face thy, a stormy night
the catamarans lay undivided
that would change my fate
the petals on an autumn morning
that leaf is a masterpiece
the oak did not lend me his years
to face the sun was i born
now i side with it like a leaf………
His blessings upon my life flow –
No matter where I am
or wherever I happen to go.
Overcoming the curse of Mankind,
is a consuming, infinite Love
from the One declared divine.
As I continue inside His Will,
sheltered by Sacrificial grace,
His many promises are fulfilled.
Truly blessed, to be a blessing
is simple for anyone to see –
As I’m fully submerged… in God’s covering.
Pushing this flesh into alignment,
guided by The Word most holy and pure,
I’m striving to learn principles
for a sanctified life to endure.
My Lord loves me without hesitation
and allowed a part of Himself to die.
He’s calling me homeward without reservation;
by His Spirit, to His side, I’ll eventually fly.
Knowing I’m a child of His,
during trying times I find true encouragement.
I’m able to lean on His strength
while in search of heavenly ascent.
Stumbling forward with pained progress,
I’ve chosen to turn myself towards Thee.
On Your path, lit by spiritual Light, I’m hoping…
That You will still forgive… a sinner like me.
In the quiet garden of Heaven,
one day I’ll walk beneath the trees
with the coolness of God’s Spirit
flowing more gently than an Earthly breeze.
In the royal kingdom of priests,
I’ll run barefoot on streets of soft gold,
overwhelmed by the perfection of peace,
following where angels had previously strolled.
Before the awesome throne room,
I’ll exude continual heartfelt praise
as part of God’s familial host
safe and secure in everlasting days.
Yes, the goal is to reach souls;
but at what further cost?
Unacceptable is using fear as mind control
for reaching those considered ‘lost’.
When not as an example of victorious living,
the principles of God appear to lose credibility.
If not demonstrating a God that’s loving,
then appeal of the Kingdom lacks desirability.
To berate skeptical souls with Hell’s threat
will deliberately cause immediate offense.
Salvation is not a game with souls to bet –
Offer encouragement to get off the lukewarm fence.
Our responsibility is to share Salvation’s plan,
not forcing people to immediately decide.
We are to be God’s vessel to reach Man
and not propagate the Eternal Divide.
Visionless is no way to be:
having sight, yet unable to see.
Soul’s blindness that’s dark and deep
indicates your spirit is fast asleep.
Use the Word to ignite your inner spark
and awaken your slumber by the Lord’s Light.
To have Life’s purpose and meaning for self
promotes character and personal delight.
Having vision is intended for all,
so get fitted with some new glasses.
Accomplishments are attainable, provided you’re
willing to use God’s Word, while getting off your
Failing to understand
why our nation is great,
an opportunity was sought
by souls cowardly lying in wait.
Focused on pure evil
as they have continually done,
an unholy attack was unleashed
on a day now known as 9-1-1.
Via the destruction
of New York’s “Twin Towers”
the enemy crushed a symbol
of U.S. monetary power.
Beyond the resources to rebuild,
our country operates from a wealthy mindset;
so we can easily overcome
loss of life and some airliner jets.
We have forgiven peoples and nations;
we have helped the World without regret.
Justice will be eventually extracted
for a date guaranteed that we’ll never forget.
We are wronged by people daily,
but to not forgive is unconscionable.
The Universal King had died for all;
for in eternity’s view, we’re pardonable.
He has given absolute amnesty
to everyone who has accepted Him.
Make no mistake about this unmerited immunity –
Grace’s favor (over the course of Life) wears thin.
Death is inevitable, and our spirits
this mortal frame will leave;
so take advantage of God’s condonation
to be granted a heavenly reprieve.
Human lives hang in limbo
under the penalty of death;
speak kindly of others and refrain…
From another wasted breath.
Challenges in Life are meant to be,
assisting us to reach maturity.
For our reaction to circumstance
marks personal growth beyond luck and chance.
Proven is our ability to learn,
expanding mental constraints as hearts burn.
Walking in upright, godly perfection
complements Jehovah’s desire for Man’s compassion.
The lasting goal is surely not religious fervor,
but moving past our fallen state of being…
Prone to error.
