Questions You Make Me Ask

How is it that a year feels like a day 
and an eternity at the same time?
Does love reach across time, 

and defy the laws of nature? 

Tell me if you know, how is it that our live
only continues to grow? 
They say that cultures collide, 
and that races divide.
But how is it that even 5,000 miles 
couldn’t keep us apart?

To avoid mistake

Reserved for One

Idols abound in this life. Worthless Idols that do us no good*.
Carved out images of powerless beings. Detestable forms of unholy things. Mute, dumb, blind, senseless. Cold stone, lifeless eyes.
Oh yes. “I renounce these things!” says Mr. Christian. “Who do you think I am?  Would I behave like the heathen of the east?”
Then he goes and sets up idols in his heart.*

The Great “I AM”

He says what He says
He moves what He moves

Read My Dream

Another lazy Sunday afternoon. And I decided to take a nap, after all, I was cold, tired and had little to do. I lay face down on the bed, sunlight peering through the window, but not really helping with the winter chills. Continue reading “Read My Dream”

The Naked Church

As I was sitting in Church, just one of those days, those regular church days, I began to drift off into wander. As if led by some mysterious guide. As you know, in some dreams you can see everyone but no one can see you. That’s how it was. I was aware of their presence, but not them of mine. Being a spectator I could not partake, but I could experience. And this is what I saw: Continue reading “The Naked Church”

Composing Salvation

God of my darkest hour,
See see and see again!
Forever my Strong Tower.

See see and see again!
He’s there to make atonement. Continue reading “Composing Salvation”
