Poem: His Love of Words

He will make a way for me,

but I’ve got to do my part.

I must keep moving forward…

with His promises in my heart.

Staying in faith, not worried

about who’s holding me back;

I continue to press ahead

in His supply, without lack.

Everything is simple for God

and it’s a fact I’ve accepted;

this kinship persists, seeing…

that we are divinely connected.

Heaven’s Husbandman grafted me

into the sacred Vine for Himself;

His…

Poem: Having a Swell Time?

A double-minded person is unstable in his ways,

caught between opposing opinions of indecision;

he is easily tossed about on the oceanic swells,

forgetting that Christ provides the provision

of calming the violent seas of personal storms.

For He alone possesses the sacred, eternal wisdom

that enables us to divinely live lives of victory,

as we “stand in the gap” on behalf of His Kingdom.

We can’t expect to survive- this cold world alone;

each…

Poem: Saintly Seeds

Let your Life be a sacred garden,

planted with genuine, saintly seeds;

properly nurturing your crop daily,

yields blessings for personal needs.

Begin with three rows of peas:

“Peace” of mind, heart and soul,

for it creates a basic foundation

that leaves you healthy and whole.

Next plant four rows of squash:

”Squash” vain gossip, indifference,

grumbling and unwelcome selfishness

to reap real, spiritual brilliance.

Add four…

Poem: The Grace of Giving

O, there are plenty of untold blessings

that are wrapped in the grace of giving,

but too many are missed by selfishness

and the failure to uphold Christian living.

Real giving is an act of self-denying love,

an act of faith, obedience and worship;

it’s also an act of the sacred and prophetic,

being reflective of our true relationship

with the Father, Who is watching over us.

When we’re moved by Faith’s spiritual shiver,

many facets of…

Poem: Generating Thirst in Others

Table salt without pleasing flavor is useless,

like a weak Christian lacking “good works”;

for the World is in need of divine examples

of how to live within the Kingdom’s framework.

There are many souls craving spiritual waters,

to have their endless abyss of thirst quenched.

Are we testifying of God’s Love to reach those

in strongholds- where they’re firmly entrenched?

Unless there are obvious and significant change

in the personal behavior of…

Poem: Lacking Peace?

The revolving doors of strife

are in opposition to peace;

unfulfilled desires of lust,

burning with envy and anger,

offers no one any release…

to those personal conflicts.

Wanting stuff with wrong purposes

for selfish pleasures of life,

will result in spiritual confusion-

more so than a three-ring circus.

Insecurities of deceitful hearts

can generate disastrous events,

with life spinning out of control;

His grace will…

Poem: Stirred, But Not Shaken

The World is not enough for me, seeing that

my enrollment is inscribed on Heaven’s scroll;

my assignments are ongoing and I know that…

I’m secure with regard to the future of my soul.

I may not enjoy the exploits of James Bond,

but my faith’s exhilaration does not compare

in the traditional sense of the World’s view,

since the Presence of Jehovah is everywhere.

Empowered by His Spirit to take divine action,

defeat of evil principalities that…

Poem: Quiet Spaces

In these quiet spaces,

I become temporarily deaf

to the meaningless noises

that seek to define me.

In these quiet spaces,

my soul is nourished;

surrounded by silence,

my spirit soars upward.

In these quiet spaces,

my focus turns inward,

knowing that His Presence

is co-mingled with mine.

In these quiet spaces,

the renewing of my mind

occurs as my life, is…

humbled before Him.

In these quiet spaces,…

Poem: Down in the Valley

Though I find myself walking,

through this dark period of life,

I will not fear the enemy about,

for my Lord and His Word speaks

to my inner man, removing doubts

that seek to haunt my spirit.

I’m comforted and content today,

knowing His divine righteousness

consumes my wearied existence;

therefore, I will firmly confess

my adoration of Christ, my King.

He lovingly accompanies my journey,

as I traverse the green pastures…

Poem: No Catching Heaven?

Is there no possibility of catching Heaven,

when my heart is one of your throne rooms?

If I really desire to be part of Your family,

can faith rise with the scent of holy perfume?

With risk, stubbornness and daring, I read

Your Word, having great expectations of You.

I’ve been tantalized, optimistic and wanting-

Your Presence in my life… to burst through!

In pursuit of this spiritual dream on Earth,

I strive to continually better my…

Pity Party of One -or- I Never Got His Name

Last Saturday, I took an empty seat

on a park bench, with book in hand.

Feeling sorry for myself, I failed-

to notice others on this public land.

Disillusioned with life’s loneliness,

my heart and face both wore sad frowns.

From my perspective, this world was…

insistent on dragging my weary soul down.

While my inner sadness wasn’t enough,

to completely complement my pitiful day,

I was approached by a breathless boy,

who had taken…

Poem: Limiting His Flow?

Impeding the loving flow of the Holy Spirit,

can cause your peace to be accidentally lost;

without the proper atmosphere in your life,

is there success when picking up your cross?

With the Spirit’s sensitivity, He knows

the inner workings of your motivations;

do you believe that a show of gratitude

will masquerade any sin-based deceptions?

We need to create and maintain each day

a spiritually-conducive ambiance for Him;

one that is…

Poem: An Unexamined Life

As noted by Socrates,

an unexamined life

is not worth living;

as a disciple of Christ,

I’ve decided to adopt…

His lifestyle of giving.

Humanity’s selfishness

needs to be subdued daily,

for we need each other;

regardless of opinions,

we’re still God’s offspring

as sisters and brothers.

From embracing The Word,

we go forth as ambassadors,

since Truth we must tell.

For an unexamined life

keeps…

Poem: No Reason to Love Me?

As imperfect as I am,

He still loves me more-

than I can comprehend;

so I take time to explore

His everlasting desire

to be in relationship

with this soul knowing…

that it goes beyond worship.

As a created being of His,

I’m not the final point-

only God has the right

to chose those He anoints.

Though it may seem that

He has no reason to love me,

I’m still one of His children

and my love for Him He…

Poem: Vital Breath

Into the dust, His breath was breathed,

giving Mankind its first gift of Life;

therefore, we should recognize and give

thanks to God, the Holy Spirit and Christ.

Whispers of prayers to our sacred God,

create results within a context of Hope;

time spent with Him accomplishes more

and transcends Humanity’s limited scope

of understanding a lifetime of struggle.

With our voices, we acknowledge, praise,

honor and worship God in acts of…

Poem: Unceasing in Prayer

I’m casting my cares upon You,

while praying throughout the day.

I’m thankful for our relationship

and the Love of Your sacred sway

that permeates my entire being.

For I’ll keep on talking to You,

discussing the issues of my life,

since You will bring me through

safely by Your divine guidance.

In You alone, faith is entrusted,

as this analytical mindset of mine

had been vigorously readjusted.

Knowing that You’re…

Poem: Love, Stability and Peace

As His children, grafted into the Living Tree,

we should be bearing the Spirit’s fruit of:

joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness,

faithfulness, kindness, willpower and Love.

Christian examples are desperately needed,

for a dying World that is going to hell.

Waving a Bible, filled with holy principles,

has never worked, but genuine actions tell

them the absolute truth about Jesus Christ.

Can we expect the unsaved to find release,…

Poem: Let Me Touch His Garment

Many doctors had failed to heal her;

her wealth was gone; unable to cope,

seemingly having no options left, she…

faced the idea of being bereft of hope.

A difficult issue of continual bleeding,

had bothered this woman for twelve years;

purposely maneuvering through the crowd,

she hoped to meet Christ, and draw near.

“If only, I could physically touch Him,

my personal need can be forever met.”

Summoning the last of her inner strength,…

Poem: Intoxicated

O my gracious Lord,

I come into Your Presence,

wanting to touch Your Essence

and to become intoxicated

via Your Holy Spirit.

Let Your joy overflow

over this broken vessel,

as souls quietly wrestle

with faith’s development

in fear and trembling.

Permit me, patient Lord,

to let troubles fade away

temporarily on this day,

as I commune with You

and meditate Your Holy Writ.

O Lord, stir my heart;

pierce its…

Poem: Apostles of Christ

Their humble characteristics are recognizable,

with a lifestyle lacking excess and opulence;

familiar with the idea of “sowing and reaping”,

they know their actions always have consequence.

Apostles of Christ examine ways of Kingdom building,

and are not tied to one specific church location,

for their daily needs are not hierarchically-based.

They avoid wants of gratuitous, personal recognition.

Operating with a pure heart, free of lust for…
