Poem: Called to Worship (XII)

We are still called to worship;

open hearts and voices, glorify His Name!

We acknowledge the Almighty

and His Kingdom… we freely proclaim!

We are called to worship,

knowing that we are His Children.

We have been given The Scriptures

and holy tools for overcoming sin.

We continue to worship Him,

Whose Love was revealed in Christ Jesus.

We will continue to Seek His face

and to have His Love perfected in us.

We intentionally…

Poem: Nothing Without God

To the uncircumcised heart,

a real relationship with God

is not only strange and peculiar,

it’s unbelievably… odd.

For what role does Mankind play,

that Jehovah is mindful of us?

How could the embodiment of Love

allow us to martyr Christ Jesus?

Unlike the angels of the heavenly realm,

we’re made in the image of God Himself.

Christ was not crucified for angels, but…

to insure a way of bringing us back to Himself.

For we’ve been given…

Poem: Those

Help me Lord, to acknowledge those

who labor within my sphere of influence,

for they too deserve my prayers for them.

Help me Lord, to lovingly admonish those

who lack a proper sense of discipline,

for like me, they require spiritual guidance.

Help me Lord, to quietly comfort those

who seek cooperation and genuine fairness,

that serves all of my neighbors equally.

Help me Lord, to forgivingly tolerate those

who are stronger or weaker…

Poem: Human Veil

Oh the irony of this mortal situation,

being encased in this temporary flesh.

For I’m momentarily bound to this earth,

although I anticipate my heavenly journey.

At the moment of Christ’s crucifixion,

the temple curtain was torn in two by God,

ripping it from the top to its bottom,

which signified His personal invitation…

for unhindered, one-on-one interaction.

And yet I yearn to feel His presence,

knowing that my sin keeps us separated.…

Poem: A Serving of Proverbs 16

The best way to demonstrate wisdom,

is speak with kindness and insight.

Develop the habit of faith and prayer

to truly strengthen one’s inner light.

Hidden intentions of men’s hearts,

are plainly visible before the Lord.

Honorable actions with Godly answers

show how one remains in holy accord…

from committing one’s life unto Him.

Understanding self’s true motivation,

while allowing God to guide one’s…

When you're crying, your vision is blurred.

My next birthday must be a very important one. I've been getting a lot of mail saying I must reply before my birthday. It's from life insurance companies, and they are saying I'll soon be at an age when many life insurance companies will begin to look at me differently. 



I have only until my birthday to accept their offers.



So what?



I already have a life insurance policy, and I'm not too affected by the anxiety inducing sales pitches that, seemingly, are meant… Continue

Nothing but the Gospel: Our Only Hope

Nothing but the gospel gives us hope.  Upon reading Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian church, that hope stands strong, because it resides in Jesus.  Here is what Paul writes,

Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, ‘I believed and so I spoke,’ we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into His presence.  For it is all for your sake, so that as…

Poem: Another Season of Spring

Another season of Spring is here

and again I’m one with the shiny rake.

Will this new tool survive the year,

before in my hand, it eventually breaks?

These annual attempts of mastering physics

of “leaf dynamics”, during the removal of leaves,

is usually a pleasant task of physical joy,

since my searching spirit is at rest and ease.

However, the annoyance of my insect entourage

of gnats, no-see-ums, mosquitoes and black flies

distracts…

Poem: Called to Worship (VII)

It’s the dawning of a new day

and my heart can’t help but sing;

Your grace and tender mercies flow

from the eternal realm of my King.

Shine the brightness of Your Light,

deep into the blackness of my soul;

direct my steps away from sin’s abyss

with Your standard of self-control.

Illuminate my spirit with the radiance

of Truth, that’s found within Your Word.

Continue to educate and edify me daily

with messages that were previously…

Poem: Armor of God

Clothe yourself in the full armor of God

and be able to withstand the Devil’s schemes;

know that he’s only the father of lies,

looking to destroy your earthly dreams.

Cover yourself with Christ’s Breastplate

of Righteousness and protect your torn heart;

your essence has been purchased for His Kingdom,

meaning that you’re meant… to be set apart.

Gird your waist with the Belt of Truth

and stand firm with integrity and honesty;

don’t…

Poem: Comfort Zone

O my Lord, long ago I accepted the idea

of being open and accepting of change.

My resistance was ultimately futile, when…

Salvation caused my life to be rearranged.

For my perspective was spiritually altered

and my heart was subtly humbled by You;

when ready, I sought after Your Kingdom,

knowing that I would remain in Your view.

Know that there can be joy in serving others,

which is complemented with learning opportunities;

depths of…

Poem: Come, See This Man

It started out, as an ordinary day,

with a daily trip… to the local well;

without much expectation, I met a Man

from a small town, located in Israel.

Come, see this Man…

Well, I must admit, He was the first

to observe me as a Child of Abraham;

knocking down my personal defenses

was Christ, the Son of the Great I Am.

Come, see this Man…

He spoke with both grace and intimacy,

and soon I was fully revealed before Him;

He…

Poem: Climate for Miracles

Never doubt the Love of God and His promises;

for with Jehovah, all things are eternally possible.

Nothing is beyond the grasp of His hand, since He is…

Creator of the Universe and Master of the impossible.

Therefore, chose to believe in heavenly miracles

and honestly respect His “Law of Agreement”.

Discard spiritual doubts and confess your sin;

enlarge your faith and renew your commitment.

Speak continually against the mounting issues of…

Poem: Steps of Faith

Have you begun an exciting, new journey,

from stepping in a new direction of faith?

Have you found your way out of the wilderness?

Remember your covering of Christ’s righteousness.

For you’ve been given ample opportunities…

to find your identity within His Kingdom.

Have you figured out by logic and reason,

how to enjoy spiritual fruits of a new season?

The secret is to spend quality time with The Word

and feed your spirit with His foundational…

Poem: Release Yourself

Release yourself from haughty thoughts,

since God’s foolishness is wiser than you;

His wisdom and knowledge transcends time,

unlike the limitations of the Human view.

Release yourself from worries and concerns,

for He has promised to meet your every need;

reap benefits from the gifting that He placed

within your implantation of spiritual seed.

Release yourself now from your earthly cares;

honor Him with your time, tithes and talent!

Know that your brokenness can be healed

and that your wholeness can be restored.

Reaffirm your divine covenant today,

by completely trusting upon the Lord!

Seek a vital relationship with God now;

be thankful for His daily grace and mercy.

Realize and understand His intentions for you;

Open your eyes and observe what He sees…

regarding His plans, already laid out;

through prayer, request spiritual guidance.

Recognize your heavenly position…

Poem: Religious Exercise

One sure way to escape sin’s perdition

is to be not trapped by human tradition

that hinders the outpour of God’s spirit,

when searching for one’s heavenly lift.

For sheer knowledge of religious minds

can impede the heart flow of the Divine.

For the truest Love require action of us,

besides Faith’s development in Whom we trust.

A genuine journey of spiritual relationship

comes from Christ’s sacrifice and friendship,

when we completely…

Poem: The Color of YHWH

A new search is ongoing,

with Israeli chemists on a trek;

they seek find the color of God,

which was formerly called tekhelet.

Is its significance a harbinger

of future Messianic times?

Can the rabbis or scientists

decipher this dividing line?

It’s an enigmatic shade of blue

that represents God’s infinity

caught between the color spectrum

of visible light and invisibility.

Some experts believe the source,

(though the…

Poem: Upon this Altar

O my Lord, help me with my request:

Set up Your permanent altar in my life.

Form the foundation of this altar,

with the unhewn rock of my stony heart,

since it represents the many hardships

of lack-luster, life experiences.

Organize these mundane rock fragments,

in a manner that is pleasing to You.

With this personal and secret platform,

I desire to commune with Thee frequently,

for it’s not for religious show or ceremony.

For my heart…
