Psalm 5

IFYOU DON'T REACH THEM, ENJOY THEIR SWEET TWILIGHT!

(don’t know what this meant? Strive, yet be content.)

***

THE PARADOX OF SACRIFICE; REALITY UNFEIGNED:

IS THAT FOR ALL THAT IS GIVEN UP …..EVEN MORE IS GAINED!

***

Once upon a timeless time

In a kingdom called divine

A prophesy heralded a decree;

Informing the poor plebians

Of some supernatual deal'ins

Coming forth from His Royal Majesty.

Though foreordained and preselected

Salacious sin left all infected,

Unportected on this terrestial dome.

But some One very well connected,

Got Mary "expecting" the unexpected;

Raising heaven's King in an earthly home.

To the wise it seemed farfetched;

Triggered by a deadly catch!

Who'd make such a sacrifice?

Despite a satanic wrestling match,

Heaven's drawbridge was unlatched,

Bringing forth the longed for Christ.

Circling 'round the castle's moat

Flowed the crimson antidote,

And grateful subjects all went a plung'in.

Faith in Him made their hope float,

Thanks to a knightly scapegoat.

They were loosed now from the devil's dungeon.

Through this simple merry tale

Eternal life can be inhaled.

Faith's haute couture! It's all the rave!

No matter you life's travail,

Believe! God's love can prevail!

Your part? Says Austin Powers, "Oh, Behave!"

***

Is wisdom acquired by acceptance of the fence;
Or the painful acquisition of barbed experience?

Some sins carve large; others pare just a trifle.
Both inflict wounds fiercer than any knife will.

I WAS AT THE PRECIPICE...........JUST ABOUT AT WIT'S END,
WHEN LOFTY FAITH MOUNTED UP.........I RESOLVED TO PRETEND
I WAS BRAVE ENOUGH TO TRY, (PLUS A LITTLE BEZERK!)
SO, I PRAYED, THEN JUMPED! AND GUESS WHAT? FAITH WORKED!

Instead of changing circumstance or others (you know how they can be!),
Prayer has had the rare experience of bringing change to me!

***
MASTERY MATTERS.
WHY NOT SPIRITUALLY EVOLVE?
A CHILD CHATTERS,
THEN SCREAMS OVER PROBLEMS TO SOLVE.
WHAT CAUSES SUCH FRUSTRATION IN A CHILD SO SMALL
IS OF NO CONSEQUENCE TO THE ADULT AT ALL.
(Don’t be a pup. Life’s “RUFF”! Grow up!)

THANKS TO FAITH, I'VE CROSSED DOUBT'S FATEFUL ABYSS.
NOW I REVEL IN THE LAND OF GRATEFUL PROMISE.
SO FULL OF JOY THAT I COULD CRY!
ALLEILUAH! FAITH TRIUMPHS ! HIS "UMPH", MY "TRY"!

Please excuse this modest omission,
If I am wrong, sue me.
Anger is the weakest position.
Tired of being puny?

LIFE BRINGS HER pain as SHE comes.
Acceptance brings sweet freedoms.

Strive to lighten the load you carry.
Resigned to see it through.
You’ll be quite extra ordinary
In everything you do!

***

I'm breathlessly standing on the edge of my faith.

A pregnant promise on the ravine's other side

That abysmal leap scares this shabby sheepish waif,

But I can't stop.  Mustn't  falter.  Refuse to hide.

For I've escaped the demon's dungeon, crossed the miry moat,

Climbed jagged busty mountains till this lame lamb looks like a trusty goat.

My past has sheared me...........left me shivering and naked.

Almost stripped this ewe's hope.  Didn't know, "Could I make it?"

There I was at the precipice..............just about at wit's end,

When lofty faith mounted up.............I resolved to pretend

I was brave enough to try, ( plus a little berserk!)

So, I prayed, then jumped!  And guess what?  Faith worked!

And when fear cried, "Abort!"............His strength kicked in.

My God's hand was not short.............He carried my sin!

Thanks to faith, I've crossed doubt's fateful abyss.

Now, I revel in the land of grateful promise,

So full of joy, that I could cry!

Alleluia!.............Faith triumphs!    His "umph".   My  "try"!


TRAGEDY’S HIGHWAYS WILL SMOOTH OUT AND LIGHTEN
IN PROPORTION TO THOSE WHOSE ROAD YOU BRIGHTEN

His rod and staff go before me,
So my hope will never glow dim.
I traverse today securely,
For my tomorrow is with Him.

or (Tomorrow’s a memory for Him.)

Where ever I roam shall be called home,
If my first word and last be “Shalom!”

Why, what is seen takes no faith at all.
Hope of that to come stirs heaven’s call
The expectation of what will be
Can hurl one into eternity!



NO, UNBELIEF SHALL NOT UNDO US.
FOR ABBA’S FAITH SHALL THIUMPH THROUGH US.
SEMPER FIDEL TILL TRIAL IS THROUGH
BLESSED IS THE FAITH THAT HOPES IN YOU!


The hope and peace salvation brings,
He opens portals; heaven sings.
I found a peace, a perfect calm,
Nestled in his heavenly palm.


Past opinions of my peers
Their scoffing howling jeers
I know I will still go on;
For I know to whom I belong.


When my joy is waxing dim,
I’ll lift my hands in praise to Him,
When my doubting flesh asks why,
Spirit’s faith will soar on high!

Lord, I’m sorry. Hear my confession, I pray.
May forgiveness usher in God’s hand hewed day.

There’s something about the present
It’s right here. Right now.
Let's find joy, not resent
Any woes God may allow.


Do not hate your circumstance.
There’s nothing His love won’t enhance

HAS YOUR WEARY HEART GROWN FAINT?
DO YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE LOSING?
MY! DID YOU FORGET, DEAR SAINT?
YOU ARE ONE OF GOD’S OWN CHOOSING?

TRIALS AND TRIBS. SORROWS UNTOLD.
HOW SIN’S BRIARS ENTANGLE
ON THE BROAD AND SPACIOUS ROAD!

JOY & LOVE, BLESSINGS UNFOLD!
IT’S AMAZING WHAT WILL BLOOM
ON SALVATION’S NARROW ROAD!

 


PLACE YOURSELF IN HIS HANDS
WATCH AND SEE
HOW LOVE EXPANDS!
IT’S NOT RESTRICTIVE,
NOR CONFINING.
MORE LIKE A PRISM, EVER SHINING!


People scattered.
Sweet hearts shattered.
Life’s thesis
In beaucoup pieces.
Has it mattered?

Where’s the soul-mending glue
To make us good as new?
Yes, he sees
Our mortal feces,
Yet cleansed a precious few.

They prayed and God heard.
Those who sinfully toddered,
His iron blood has soddered.
Whole again. Rejoice! Amen!

Friend are you looking for a better way to live?
Say, “A-onif!” Apology Or Not: I Forgive!

A new word blossoms. Take a whiff
The scent of forgiveness. A-onif!
Sprits it once or sprits it twice
Each time you need heaven’s spice!

Hang your head. Noose ‘round pride.
Cross ‘n nails. Crucified!

Let’s work together in unity
Nothing great is
Accomplished
single-handedly!

I’m a great believer
in give and take.
here is what I mean:
Give all…….take nothing!
Don’t settle for in-between.
AND THE ICING ON THE CAKE
IS TO DO IT ALL UNSEEN!

Grapple flesh and with it wrestle;
To produce fruit that’s celestial!


MAJESTIC MERCY. ITS REIGN NEVER ENDS;
SPILLING ON WILLOWS WHOSE WILL HUMBLY BENDS.

Friend are you looking for a better way to live?
Say, “A-onif!” Apology Or Not: I Forgive!

A new word blossoms. Take a whiff
The scent of forgiveness. A-onif!
Sprits it once or sprits it twice
Each time you need heaven’s spice!

Our Father who art,
Please bless every heart,
That’s given to heaven,
As we do our part.


Lord, have I lived to love you more?
Lived so I was worth dying for?

MY PRINCE OF PEACE INSPIRES ME MORE THAN A MEASELY TENTH,
FOR DELIVERANCE FROM PITY PAST’S THORNY LABYRINTH.

CHILD, FAITH IS DRAWN TO THE BEAT ABBA DRUMS.
BELIEVE WHAT “I AM” PURPOSES “BECOMES”!

ON THIS GREAT TRUTH BE SURE TO STUMBLE:
HEAVEN’S TOAST GOES TO THE MOST HUMBLE!


YOU WON’T BE SOUL LOST
IN A SPIRITUAL HOLOCAUST.


THE BUSINESS OF FLESH: DISCECTION
THE TRAVAIL OF SPIRIT: CONNECTIOn

***

IN THE TWILIGHT HOUR I HEAR THE CHIRPS AND EARTHY SOUNDS OF HERE BELOW. .

I FEEL THE POWER OF WAYWARD WINDS AS I WONDER WHERE THEY BLOW.

I LISTEN AND READ THE SAGEST MORSELS SPOKEN BY MANKIND.

BUT THERE'S SOMETHING MISSING IN THESE TEMPORAL JOYS I FIND.

  I SEE THE MAJESTY FROM SEA TO SEA, AND FATHOM PROPHESIES FORETOLD.

I SENSE THE GROWING POWER OF LOVE AS I WATCH FORGIVENESS UNFOLD.

I ENVISION AN ENDLESS FUTURE ...........THOUGH THIN HAIR IS GRAYING OLD.

BUT. THERE'S SOMETHING BEYOND THIS VEIL:

MY SOULS BEEN BOUGHT,.....................MY HEARTS BEEN SOLD.

OH.  HE'S MORE REAL THAN ALL THE FUTILE HOPES OF MEN.

ALL HIS PROMISES HAVE BECOME YES!............REJOICE, YOU'RE BORN AGAIN!

FOR BEYOND THIS SEEMINGLY  INSURMOUNTABLE OCEAN OF TIME,

MY EYES OF FAITH SEE HIS SERAPHIC SHIP OF HOPE:

 MAROON SAILS STAINED IN BLOOD DIVINE.

HE'S MORE SURETY THAN THE MIRAGE OF THIS REELING  RICKETY REALM.

I TRUST THE CAPTAIN OF MY FATE AT THE ARK'S CELESTIAL HELM.
