Writing this poetry, can
be a cathartic process;
it allows me to explore…
all that’s within me. By
doing so, I am able, to
uncover the inner finesse

that He has placed inside
me. Simultaneously, I am
clearly pushed outside of
my comfort level; between
sharing my work, finding
what’s in me and The Lamb’s

expectation… of my heart,
I find the experience of
writing extremely humbling
and satisfying. Hopefully,
my poetry’s quality will  
improve, as I voice Love…

from my human perspective.

Without the Presence of Yahweh,
we’re essentially nothing; we
temporarily possess His breath
and He rightfully expects us…
to be productive. When His sway

over us is evident, we produce
actions… based in Love. The
consistent and ongoing things
we do, show the trustworthiness
of our character. Can we deduce

the trajectory of our ongoing
maturation of our Faith? No;
our arrogance of knowing would
deter our path of humility! So
we go… forward, transforming

our lives… under God’s power!

Trust is nothing without proof.
Sorry is nothing without change.

As I, approach the twilight
of my existence, my days are
akin to an evening shadow; I
am withered, like the grass
that’s overgrown. The plight

of my humanity, is not new;
further discussions can only
reveal the severe vanity of
self-wallowing in such mundane
thoughts. The morning’s dew

and dawn greets me, with great
expectations; His latest batch
of new mercies floods my soul.
I’m filled with His contentment,
as Death impatiently awaits…

my eventual, earthly demise.

The glorious power of Christ’s
crucifixion transcends… all
thoughts of Human reasoning;
for the slender portion of one
drop of His blood provides Life

Everlasting to any man, willing
to humble himself, to ask for
forgiveness and to confess his
dependence on Yahweh. We’re not
worthy of the continual flowing

of His Mercy and Grace, without
a relationship with Him! Selah!
Everyday, each born-again child,
that is filled with gratitude
and thankfulness, should shout:

Thank You, Lord, for my redemption
and the wondrous gift of Salvation!

How can I, look within
myself, to discover the
hidden dimensions of…
my soul? Can unwanted,
lasting affects of sin

keep me forever blinded?
Can my human aspirations
of love, truth, beauty,
joy and fulfillment be
attained? An unrequited

relationship with Yahweh
strongly implies that His
Light isn’t present, for
others to see. So I must
be aware of what He says

about me; I’ve been made
uniquely in His Image,
an expression of His Love.
If I can be stilled, won’t
I find God and be swayed…

by the reality of Him?

The importance of our proper
attitude can’t be overstated;
are we, blessed children or a
sad bunch of spectral paupers,

unable to see our identity in
Christ? Do we understand, what
it means to be… humbled? Are
we, naively carrying our sins,

to justify our sense of guilt?
Are we willing to repent and
turn away from our wickedness?
Or do we prefer the soft silt

of Death… to cover our bones?

Most everyone understands,
the many cultures of human
violence; even sadder, is
the reluctant acceptance…
of evil. Veils of darkness
will hide the return of One,
as a thief… in the night.
  
Panic will erupt, as hands
are raised in fear; people
will be seeking answers, as
concerns of peace and safety
are gone. Missing Christians
from around this World, will
spark new debates; His Light
  
may scare the hell of those…
left behind; soon others will
realize the implications of a
mass exodus of believers and
the crisis of Faith; they’ll
have to reevaluate their weak
positions regarding God. Can
  
they now overcome sin? Clothes
will be torn in anguish, as the
pressure of Faith increases.
Will some find comfort, knowing
that may be killed for new Faith
or will they remain steadfast…
in their, ongoing lust for Man?

In Him, all things
are held together;
His desire is… for
Life to get better!

In Him, we’ve power
to become His sons
and daughters; He’ll
encompass everyone,

who comes before Him.

In Him, many are made
new; every soul can be
redeemed, if wanting a
heart that’s able to see.

In Him, we can find joy
and indescribable peace;
accept and trust Him, to
be permanently released

from Life’s suffering.

Could it be, that the ineffectiveness
of our prayers are directly linked to
the poor motivations… of our hearts?
Are we in pursuit of genuine holiness

and a relationship, with The One, Who
made the Heavens and the Earth? Can we
overcome ourselves and rise up as His
Children? Our Faith and Salvation, do

not relate to our personal actions; we
are saved by His Grace alone; the good
works, we perform, are an outward sign
of our love for Him. When will we see,

that we’re nothing… without Him? When
we strive, to understand, the truest
purpose of prayer, our spiritual eyes
are gradually opened before Him; then

we can see… our identity in Christ!

Matt 6:9-13; Eph 2:8-9 and

The primary purpose of prayer is not
to get something, but to know Someone.

God is most glorified in us,
when we are most… satisfied
in Him. Do we realize that our
Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus
  
sets the standard for living?
The practicality of real Faith
demands Love’s action each and
everyday; if we’re not giving
  
of ourselves, then what are we
really doing? Is humanity one
race of people, of various skin
tints? If we can begin, to see
  
Life, using the eyes of Christ,
then we’re on the lit path to…
personal victory, while being
an overcomer… of tiring strife.
