Dies Selfishness Slowly…

Dies
Selfishness
Slowly

Self -executed
By elusive love.

Hearts becoming heads-
Hands filling gloves.

“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” -Romans 8:12-14

Sky Full of Rights…

December 4, 2013

TRUTH

Compassion’s song
When
So much is so wrong.

The nights are long,
But the days are longer,
Thoughts
In wordless view

Fear is so strong,
But love is stronger.
One’s
Controlling you

All
Outlines have insides
And all the while
We thought
WE 
Were surrounding
Reality
Hides

Inn of Plain Sights
A sky full of “rights”

(So,
By “The Way…”
Obey.)

Flight’s Price…

November 29, 2013

“Sure, it feels easy.
It’s harder to walk
Than it is to fall,
But one way makes friends
With the ground through it all,

While the other makes of it
A merciless
Enemy at the last.

Flight’s price
One day
Will not be what’s past.”

Faith in Deed…

mustard seed mountain

Well, I’ve been worrying for a while now,
And Jesus was right;
It doesn’t make you any taller.

-It just kept getting
Smaller
And smaller

Until I sort of lost it-
“Faith”
My little pet mustard seed.
My
Faith,
My floundering faith,
In deed.

“And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest?”

-Luke 12:25-26

 

“But I will hope continually,
And will praise You yet more and more.
My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And Your salvation all the day,
For I do not know their limits.
I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.”

-Psalm 71:14-16

Tomorrow- It’s Coming…

November 26, 2013

Sometimes I say
Stupid things-
A word out of place,
Then, somehow, it rings

Through the ages,
Well -throughout the days-
Across all these pages,
Whilst a symphony plays

In my memory, my misery,
Hearing error in song.
Where my droning
Mistakes, they drag on
And on.

But…

The concert’s not ended,
And my life must still play.

Tomorrow- it’s coming.

Ask
What God wants today.

“But…

seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

-Matthew 6:33

Awakened at its Beauty…

November 24, 2013

Watching that single,
Solitary wave,
He drifts
Away in wonder
At what butterfly must
Have flapped her wings,
In some land oceans asunder

To have brought it here,
God’s Truth, quite clear,
With sleep so near,

To be awakened at its beauty
To be reminded by the roar
To hear the call of- what-
Duty?
Love!
To remember:
There
Is
More.

A Rose? Unknown…

November 24, 2013

Foggy,
The night’s air,
Swirls,
Between

Two ships
Passing,
Steady,
Serene.

What there,
Is grown?
A rose?
Unknown.

Its seed sown in
A subtle storm,
Amidst the patient,
Hopeful norm

Of obedience
Without pretense,
Bringing about
A better form.

Sailing beneath
That starless sky,
Prayers there whispered,
“Alpha, Kappa, Xi.”

Amen.
