Poem: Not Against Flesh and Blood

Must we compete in spiritual matches,

against unseen, devilish competitors?

Must we needlessly suffer and find…

our souls ending up both worn and sore?

Within this fallen, earthly world,

the rulers of darkness don’t worry me;

for I know that their authority

is incapable of imprisoning completely.

Their ongoing tactics of fear,

is something that I’ve already seen.

So I’m not concerned, knowing…

that I’m a member of the Kingdom…

Poem: No Longer Abram

Living within the house of idol makers,

the depth of my soul was perturbed.

How could one justify the worship of art?

To me, such comprehension was absurd.

And yet, it was still clear to me,

that worship was a necessary component;

so I craved a logical and moral way

to circumvent my spiritual descent.

Knocking over these impractical statues,

made from gold and various materials,

demonstrated glorification of dead objects

was…

Poem: Torn Heart

Even now, my precious Lord,

I’m fully aware of the spiritual bleed

emanating from the wounds of my heart;

despite the ongoing pain, I’ve experienced

that genuine explosion of Your holy seed…

which was planted within the frailty

of this tear-filled, human existence.

Your timeless waves of abundance continue

to inundate the morning cries of sorrow

and to overwhelm my life’s resistance.

The fabric of my heart has been ripped;

from this…

Poem: Deep Within Me

Long ago my Lord, I desired…

to share myself with You completely.

Under Your everlasting covenant,

You etched Your message of Love

upon my open and tender heart.

Now I radiate with joy and knowledge

from having Your Principles imprinted

on my life and mind’s thinking.

As I’m steadfast on Your firm foundation,

continue to enhance our relationship.

Cleanse me from the impurities that stain,

as You have previously promised.

Show me how to find and…

Poem: Moral Fiascos

Real Truth is still being sought out,

in this ever growing Age of Information;

the rise of social media has added

to the noise against spiritual institutions.

Unfortunately, ungodly behaviors continue to play out

within our society, neighborhoods and church pulpits.

We Christians must wholeheartedly repent now,

before His divine Grace, we unwittingly forfeit.

Sacred texts attest to God’s existence by faith,

while Science can only prove Him via…

Poem: Called to Worship (IV)

Do you know what you’re doing?

Search your heart’s motivation.

What is it, that keeps you going?

Are there… corresponding actions?

Refrain from frenetic, frantic busyness,

for now is the time for quiet waiting;

stop the phony acts of supposed holiness;

discontinue the false, religious debating.

Endeavors taken are still your choice.

Can your actions stand before God’s pop quiz?

Are you listening solely to His voice?

Is the plan you’re…

Poem: Faith!

Help me Lord to focus solely on Thee!

Issues and challenges of Life come and go,

defining me with my soul’s scarred essence.

Yet I remain, beneath Your heavenly flow!

Allow Your Presence to wash over me,

removing all evidence of sins’ stains.

Continue breaking the ungodly links of…

the remnant of shackling, prisoner chains.

Open my eyes fully that I may see

the way You view me within Your Kingdom.

Let this divine, flooding confidence

gird me…

Poem: Silent Tears (II)

Have you envisioned

     our Lord upon The Cross?

Have you seen

     those considered lost?

Did you notice

     the absence of Grace?

Did you observe

     tears staining His face?

Can you imagine

     the agony of His pain?

Have you accepted the Gift

     of the Lamb that was slain?

On that day of crucifixion

     Love was brokenhearted

and divine reconciliation

     was quietly started.

Christ mourned the…

Poem: Determination

O Lord, I have purposed in my spirit

to sing of Your greatness and mercy!

Before You I humbly bow and kneel;

with my tongue, I exalt only Thee!

The enemy constantly surrounds me;

my joy they look to slyly steal.

You are my Maker and I’m the clay,

previously molded upon Thy Potter’s wheel.

Since Your words drip from my heart,

no longer can I remain silent.

Use me to write this poetry, filled…

with messages that are “heaven…

Poem: Unwavering

O my Lord, my eyes are fixed on you;

nothing else matters or blocks my view.

I’ve purposed to set my heart on Thee,

knowing that You have a vision for me.

Remove these silly, earthly distractions

that interfere with our intimate connection.

I’ve been released from shadows of anonymity;

my future is certain, bound solely by Thee.

My desired has been renewed with holy fire;

teach me even more, before my life transpires.

You continue to sustain…

Poem: His Amazing Grace Continues

I am surely blessed, knowing…

that God’s grace continues to flow;

for I’m sustained by His presence,

wherever I am or divinely go.

I refuse to be consumed by uncertainties;

for by His grace, all fears are relieved!

My faith will be evident within my life,

which started… when I first believed.

From promises of spiritual prosperity,

I thankfully in praise, raise my voice…

giving utterances of His sacred Word

in which this joyful soul…

Wanting things to be a little bit different ...

I've been waiting for spring, and, here, it's in its first week, and still the temperature is barely above freezing and tonight it will drop as low as 19 °F. 



This morning, a light dusting of snow was coating the ground. 



I thought with spring, immediately things would be a little bit different around here. 



It isn't so.



I suppose I need to journal a little bit, too, on my recovery. 



I don't really view myself as recovering, or being in… Continue

He is All I need.

It's cold, 18 °F, and Winter Storm Titan's wave of ice and snow showers has passed, leaving behind it an accumulation of several inches, and this morning's glare of bright sunlight was very reflective off of it, blinding, but also very misleading, as its rays were emanating no warmth and a bitterly harsh wind was blowing. 



I praised God that I and my family were safe and warm. 



I praised God for Who He is, His power and greatness, as I read through Psalm 135. 



6… Continue

I find it hard to rest.

I have lost faith and trust in people. I must force myself, pressure myself to do things. I think now that suppressing bad memories is actually not a bad thing, and I wish I could return to that state of mind. Dwelling on negative experiences and the painful emotions they bring up will cause post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression, but it's too late now for me. What's done is done.



I set small goals and focus on what I can do. When Sunday comes, I want to go to… Continue

Hard things from your heart

Snowy weather returned last night and several inches blanketed the ground and trees by morning, making a stark contrast set against the blue sky.



Clouds were dissipating and the sun was out but it was still very cold, 26°F.



It's been one of those days when I can't seem to get warm. 



My devotion today said to "speak the hard things from your heart to the Lord."



When you're depressed, you live by sight, and then life is a very cold and dark place, and… Continue

Something else is more important.

I'm so very aware that I've been in some ruts and that, while God may accept me for who I am, God doesn't want to leave me the way I am. He doesn't want me staying in these same ruts that I've been in for many months now.



I think the best quote I've run across so far regarding fear is one that I've only recently read: "Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."



For me, that something else must become my… Continue
