Poem: Beatitudes

The ‘Be happy attitudes’ uttered by Christ,

demonstrate a mindset that we need to embrace.

Hungering after God’s divine righteousness,

gives us comfort in His covering of grace.

Be dependent on God, for bearing good fruit;

know that it’s still wonderful to be blessed.

Everyone is important, since we’re His children;

unfortunately, not all will pass the sacred test…

of walking in the principles of God’s love.

Despite our status in life,…

Poem: As It Is Written

Where one’s mind goes,

the Man will always follow.

Are you paying attention

to what may be tomorrow?

 

Faith always agrees with God

and the messages of His Word.

Take random thoughts captive.

Is it Him, that you’ve heard?

 

Be freed from mental bondages;

improve your thinking today.

Read the Biblical instructions

and get a new life underway.

 

Meditate on the Scriptures.

Reduce your inner turmoil;

Pray for…

Poem/Song: Seeing Clearly?

Am I living from a place of

blind fear or abundant love?

What messages are coming through-

from the endless Kingdom above?

Daily I endeavor to live,

the life I have imagined;

will my dreams be realized?

Will my future be fashioned?

Is my faith more than

an illusional contrivance?

What am I doing wrong,

since I’m wanting guidance?

The infinity of my soul

continues to slowly unfold;

will the value of my…

Poem: Set Your Mind (Spiritual Secret)

Pay attention to what God wants to show you;

embrace the regenerated self created in God’s image;

a wandering mind of distractions, unable to focus,

leads you to trouble and and adverse situations,

when not following the principles of Christ Jesus.

 

To sincerely follow your heart’s desire,

while avoiding the issues of double-mindedness,

you must properly set and keep your mind;

when waiting on God’s timing for your life,

the things that…

Poem: Sola Scriptura

Hidden layers of meaning,

completely permeate The Word;

they’re found by spiritual eyes

and a desire for absolute Truth-

to overcome the enemy’s lies.

Take time to study the Bible

and its many, divine precepts.

Embrace them with your heart;

learn lessons from others’ pain;

keep life from falling apart.

Be led by the true Love,

behind the scarlet thread;

for God identifies His own,

by the principles found…

in the Scriptures…

Poem: Releasing God’s Power

I can depend on Christ to strengthen me!

Acknowledging that He is still in control,

no longer will I remain faint and weary-

since He comforts the depths of my soul.

Miracles always come in cans, not “can’ts”;

though His Presence and power are available,

I must humbly move forward under His guidance,

unashamedly wearing today’s Christian label.

His Spiritual fortitude divinely energizes me;

confidence in knowing that victory is coming,

allows me…

Poem: The Whisper Inside

In my quiet morning moments,

I seek Your Presence today,

wanting time at Your side.

Without You, I can do nothing;

this is a sliver of Your truth

and not a statement of vain pride.

Still hungry for more of You,

is my heart’s humble claim;

don’t let me remain… teary-eyed.

Long ago, I accepted Truth found-

in Your Word, there are answers

for overcoming problems in stride.

Despite simplicity of my ideals,

I seek a fruitful life of…

Poem: Heart of Compassion?

Do you regularly wear an invisible,

‘do not disturb’ sign around your neck?

Are you on a real mission for The Kingdom

or on the adventure of a personal trek?

Can you be moved to help without limitations?

Are you consistently viewed as unapproachable?

Does your mind reflect an attitude of a servant?

Remember that genuine Love is always actionable.

Forget about the wickedness of the World,

for we are still the hands and feet of Christ.

The day of…

Poem: Costly Signal

Regarding the absolute authority of God,

it’s crazy, silly and futile to rebel;

know that everyone will ultimately bow,

before His throne or the gates of Hell.

Foolishness of God exceeds Mankind’s wisdom;

hidden are the keys of His profound mystery.

We are inspired with awe without intimidation,

knowing that He was crucified upon that Tree.

Acknowledge His deeds, since He loved us first;

worship Him now; His precepts we’re to observe.

Bask…

Poem: Power of Contentment

The power of contentment is a strong force,

composed of the sense of inward sufficiency;

for we’ve been promised the strength to succeed

when we open spiritual eyes and dare to see…

His divine plan of grace and abundance for us.

Christ, the Alpha and Omega, beginning and end,

demonstrated His Love with actions at Calvary,

giving us the privilege to be called His friend.

We should not be worried about personal needs,

for we’ve been equipped to address…

Poem: Not Concerned

O my Lord, I am not concerned,

with things that do not involve me.

Let all forms of pride or haughtiness,

be set aside and permanently forgotten.

Let me bask under Your righteousness.

O my Lord, I am not concerned,

with silly, worldly desires of vanity,

which are solely designed to distract me.

As one of Your children, let me be content

with my Kingdom purpose and Your decrees.

O my Lord, I am not concerned,

with the weariness of this human…

Poem: Poiema

Though I strive for real Word quality,

some people still get upset with me,

regarding spiritual constructs I write,

having been offended by Truths I see.

Within the depths of my Christian poetry,

I share faith’s expression and creativity,

seeking a balance of confession and worship,

in understanding how my dear Lord views me.

Since Creation, a complete scope of Humanity,

has been already defined with God’s artistry-

for He breathed life into us,…

Poem: Within My Heart

Can the pain of human suffering

prevent me from being made whole?

How should I properly express

the inner dimensions of my soul?

Can the depth of my understanding

reach that of King Solomon’s intellect?

How often must I pray to receive

answers from the Divine architect?

Thankfully, my Lord is merciful,

gracious and patient with me;

for I carefully consume His Word,

wanting these blind eyes to see.

The treasure of Your Word’s…

Poem: With Assurance, Confidence and Boldness

It’s true; I can never be separated,

from the eternal Love of my Lord.

No possible form of earthly trouble,

can take away Salvation’s reward.

The times of tribulations will pass,

be it suffering, calamity or distress.

Christ’s seed of righteousness in me,

brings forth the joy of sacred rest.

With my faith, I will persevere,

moving through today’s affliction.

Since I belong to Him, victory is…

already promised, under His horizon.

Poem: Pursuit of Holiness

The flesh lusts daily against the Spirit

and the Spirit wars contrary to the flesh.

The opposing tenets of grace and iniquity

can never with each other… completely mesh.

For the redeemed sinners operate by grace,

while the practitioners of unrighteousness

prefer the dark, ungodly ways of wickedness

and will not inherit the Kingdom’s fullness.

Fleshly works are clearly evident: adultery,

fornication, idolatry, sorcery, uncleanness,

contentions,…

Poem: The Partridge in the Pear Tree

The symbolism of this Christmas classic

has a second, hidden meaning for the ages.

For this song has an ulterior motive,

contained in verses that seem outrageous.

Christ is the truest fulfillment of Love,

in the primary doctrine of Christianity;

therefore, He is the focus of each refrain,

being the sin offering on Crucifixion’s tree.

The pair of turtle doves represents books,

volumes of both the Old and New Testaments.

The Bible embodies…

Poem: Iridescent

Do you believe the idea,

of being made in His image?

Can you dispute that we are

clothed with the beauty,

of a spiritual accent?

Few will doubt, our composition

of mind, body and soul.

Will technology allow us to see

our spirit’s rainbow glow…

of being iridescent?

Loosely based on:

Poem: Nothing, But Olive Oil

She was in a panic; her husband was dead,

while the fear of dread had filled her head.

The local creditor wanted to enslave her sons;

she desired to keep her family from being undone.

She observed the seriousness of her situation

and sought the prophet for an inspired solution.

In their meeting, Elisha asked about her resources,

to determine a course of action, for him to endorse.

“With my spouse gone, my finances have been despoiled;

all that…

Poem: Called to Worship (XIII)

Now sing unto The Lord, a new song;

offer up your voice on this glad day.

Give heartfelt thanksgiving often,

with the joyful sounds of praise.

Our genuine appreciation of Him,

should be reflective of open hearts!

Cling to His Presence and not flesh;

don’t allow His Spirit to sadly depart.

Take time to quietly commune with our Lord;

recognize His essence permeates the universe,

seeing that He is the ruler of all creation.

By divine…

Poem: Quiet Life

With nothing to prove

and no one to impress,

it was my Godly mindset

that lowered my stress.

With an identity in Him,

I found absolute Love,

with His grace and mercies

flowing from Heaven above.

From minding my work

and my own business,

it became much easier

to joyfully confess…

that Biblical principles

were successful for Christ;

so my truest ambition

is to lead a quiet life.
