O folly for this
World worships the simple things
Power, money and fame that can be
blown away with a whisper of a breath.
Know that the things you need to
survive will be provided.
Crave not unnecessary things for
when you do then the
love in your heart would be diminished.
For our capacity to love
Is small and simple
And has yet to be trained to accept the
large capacity of the Lord’s love for us.
For we will be tried and tested
by the flame of His love.
For we need strength to love as Jesus loved.
For we need patience to love as Jesus loved.
For we need faith stronger than steel to even
begin to grasp the intensity of the Love
Remember that the Lord’s love
burns hot and
one must believe
they are strong enough to hold it.
Believe that you are not alone
to bear it for
when the Father gives a gift
He knows what gift is good and
if you’re strong enough to bear it.
For one can walk through fire and
not be burned
so the same as one can stand in the flaming love of the Lord
and not be burned.
Tried and tested, crushed and pruned, pressured and cut,
all beautiful things go through such difficulty
to polish their souls and
For as we cannot understand
the ways of the Lord then
judge not what He does
whether it be good or bad
for we know not what
except that it is good.
The Lord is good.
That’s all we must know.
Love your fellow warrior
For you both are fighting
Battles beyond the scope of understanding
For our understanding is so little
Yet when you look into the eyes of your fellow
You can see the flames of the battlefield
The melancholy of their lost friends
The mourning of their heart
The depth of their pain
And their open wounds
See this and never hate anyone again.
For every one is your fellow soldier
On the battlefield of the world
Yet we fight on for the knowledge that there is still good left
And that good is worth fighting for. Worth dying for.
As our Lord came down to dwell among us
He too saw a good worth dying for.
If our very own beloved Lord did such a noble thing as to fight our fight and die for the sake of all humanity then know
That deep in the soul of your fellow people
Your very own neighbor who passes by on the street
They too, deep inside, remember that battle.
The hope and the light that Jesus saw
We have it inside us. It’s our willpower.
It’s what drives us and propels us through each day and pulls us out of bed each morning.
Believe there is good
And that good is God’s grace on Earth.
Fight for the hope
That one day the time will come when the trumpet blares and the war comes to an end. And we may all rest for we are free.
Remember the things of this world are only vapors
It’ll disappear into nothingness the next day.
Do not put all of yourself
Into such temporary things
For you are greater than that.
Remember O Child
Sweet as can be
Remember where your focus and your heart lies.
The world like a vacuum will pull you towards itself so that you may disappear along with it when the sun rises
But hold steadfast to your love for the Lord
And you will be as everlasting as His love proves to be.
For His love conquers hate and death.
For His love has been there since the beginning and will be even unto the end.
The evil one and his demons play you like a chess piece and their power will strangle you until you can’t breathe.
Now O Child please be wise and refuse to play. But if you do chose to play then play with the Upper Hand and let God make your moves.
Checkmate the Devil.
But a game is just a game and the world is just the world. When the game and the world ends know that your heart and spirit is dwelling in the house of the Lord. And there you will taste no death for death only comes to those who were born.
You know not where you come from, so why wonder how you will end? Is it not foolish enough to worry about such things when you can barely blink an eye without the Lord knowing?
So worry not and trust in the Lord and may your life upon this Earth be pleasant and sweet to the taste.
Lie in evergreen pastures
Your face feeling the warmth of the sun.
The trees sing gentle songs
And the sounds of the mountains as they create the chorus.
A gentle rain creates a cooling mist
And the dew upon the grass reflects the love of God.
Sit up and breathe deeply as forever goes on and on
Your heart flutters
And your soul shines
While in those evergreen pastures.
Tiny flowers grace the hills and glorious birds seek to the skies.
Water bright as crystal falls from the cliffs
And tall grasses sway in the breeze.
The winter is over.
The warmth has come and you feel no more sorrow
Or pain, or mourning.
Just eternal love.
Your heart whispers
‘I Love You’
and a voice bold in conviction and strong in steadfast faithfulness replies behind you.
‘I Love You Too.’
You turn and see your Love walking in the tall grasses. His head so beautiful and so bright even the sun bows in reverence. When he walks the vibrations of the universe pulses with life. You can feel that life. You can feel His love flowing through you.
He holds out his hand and you take it. You kiss his hands and feel the wound left from the nails that once held him to the cross.
He holds you close to his heart and you can hear the entire universe breathing and moving within him.
For when you are lost
He is the one you seek.
For when you are broken
He is the medicine to heal
It has been sung a
It has been said a
But I do not want
The depth to be lost
The Lord our God
Loved us so deeply
That our capacity for love
Cannot even begin to grasp
The intensity of His Love.
He came and dwelt with us
Through Jesus of Nazareth
Our love came to us!
He breathed with us
And ate with us
And oh what a joy it was!
The gardens bloomed
And the birds sing
All the more
As Our Love walked the earth with us.
For when we are at our weakest He came and lifted us up form our knees.
When we can’t see because our sins blinded us he came and opened our eyes.
His hand cleared away the storms and his grace transcended the angry waves of the sea to the point where he walked upon it. When our sins cripple us he comes and tells us to get up and walk.
O God’s People! Rejoice as the Lord walks among us! The wine is sweeter and the food fills. His words are the same words that brought forth the universe! His words cast out evil and his words heal the broken hearted. For even if I touch the
hem of his robe
I am healed.
His eyes melt at the sight of faith.
The softness and the gentleness that would calm even the most violent storms. The beloved lamb of God who is now the shepherd of His lambs.
May he hold us close to his heart and we rejoice forevermore.
When my strength fails
And my worries overwhelm me
I sit under the whispering trees and ask Jesus to hold my hand.
And he will.
He will hold your hand through the valley of shadows
And no demon dares to touch you.
He will uplift your soul until you sing brighter than the morning birds.
I close my eyes
And cherish the love higher than all the love of this world.
For the first time in
My soul smiles.
His name is Jesus.
His love transcends
As he loves even those that tried to destroy him.
Not a word of hate fell from his mouth
Not a hint of anger for those that oppressed him. For he knew that love conquers all. That the ultimate truth is love. And the evil one.
Who does not have
a shred of truth in him.
Despises the light.
Come with me
Those who share my love
Remove from yourselves all hate and all anger
Let go of the flaming coal in your hand
Let go of the curses from your mouth
May your mouth be flowing with honey
With the everlasting praise for the Lord and His Son
Whose name is Jesus.
For when you bow before the throne of God
You will feel the soft gentle smile of Jesus as he gazes at you with eternal love. For when you pray. He prays. For when you believe in Him so behold and see O Child! For you’ll see His love in everything!
My hands splinter as they grip the cross
The wood digs into flesh
And you can feel the warm
Droplets of blood drip upon your forehead.
O Child hear His cry
As He cries for You!
Bow low and prostrate yourselves!
For you cannot reach God
Until Jesus holds your hand and brings you to Him!
The Lord’s face is turned away from your pleas
And your cries
Until that one night
When you call upon the name of His Son
Your stone heart turns to flesh and the dark void that was empty is filled with light.
For my Savior
Has entered my room
My Savior whose
Who laid down his life for his People. For God’s people.
Rejoice dear heart for you are made anew!
Rejoice and cry your tears of joy for you who was lost is now found!
Jesus is forgiving and he forgives unconditionally. A love so strong and unblemished. For when he holds your head close to his heart you know your pain, your guilt, your shame and all the trickeries of the evil one vanishes in smoke.
Then Jesus kneels with you and prays with you.
And Behold again O Child! Behold again as the light fills the room and the Lord turns His face to you once more!
Know that even in your strength and will there are some things you cannot do alone. If anything at all! May Jesus be your strength forever.
O PRAISE The LORD
May our song be
There is none
Greater than You
Or more worthy of
For your garden
Flows with milk
Food that satisfies
And Love everlasting!
Your love is all
I know and
That for me is enough
For in the deepest seas
In the darkest corners
In the deadliest valleys
And the most tormented
I know You will be
And you My Lord
My God will
And no evil can touch
Even a hair on my head
Without you knowing.
My tense shoulders
My mind clears and the waters of chaos stills
With just a wave of your hand.
Your majesty is great
And your power is all the more incredible by the moment.
Oh how my eyes rejoice to see your grace in all that is this world.
O Children of God
And fear no more.
For when you bow you will see the hem of His robe and feel his light even in the darkest of nights.
O fearful Child
Fear no more!
For the Lord is with you always.
Humble yourself before Him.
For the teacher does not appear until the students are quiet.
One can say having faith
Belongs to the Bravest.
For those that Believe
In The Lord
Shall have their faith and themselves refined
To the point where they
Will be blameless and holy before Him.
A lump of coal
fears the fire
But are you not
More than a lump of coal?
Know that you
Who walk through the
Flames of tribulation
Will not be burned
If you walk with the Lord
For as the lump of coal
Transforms to become a diamond stone
So be it that one new in faith will also
Face the pruning
Of their faith
Unto the point where they
Become diamond stone.
Then as strong as their faith is now
They will then be pruned
And like a tree in God’s vineyard, like a stone upon God’s table.
Once pruned new leaves will sprout and stronger branches unfold within you. Once cut your diamond faith will become faceted with a million facets shining like the sun.
For the journey is difficult
But the reward is
More than any treasure.
So rejoice O Child
When faced with difficulty
And Know that the Lord is ready to lift you from your troubles. Do not be angry
With Him when trials come for He is willing to pull your from the drowning waves.
Do not lose faith
Do not lose faith.
For many have only seen the flame and
Not having yet been refined
Runs to hide
Dismissing the Lord.
May your trees
Bend over with fruit.
May your eyes
Open and See always
May your Ears only Hear the Voice of the Lord.
May your Heart only feel His Love eternally.
May the Lord be with you always O Children of God!
May He guard your heart from deceit and temptation!
May He guard your mind from the evil doings of the world.
May He guide your steps as you walk through the darkest valleys.
May His Hand be with you always and His angels stand before you and behind you always.
Know that you are not alone O Children of God!
As mighty angels taller than your skyscrapers stand with you as you battle through the world of the evil one.
For the Lord knows of its evil.
As the nations of the world fight over petty things. You O Child! Fight over your soul because I implore you that the world wants it for itself.
Do not chase after the evil one for he takes and never gives. The evil one promises joy and pleasure but know that he promises nothing and that all he wants is to take and never give.
But know this that even if you fail and the evil one takes all you have
Then remember the Lord and He will return to you twice of what the evil one has taken away.
Fill yourself with the Holy Spirit and you will always be satisfied. When temptations of the evil one comes and it will always come –
You’ll be too Full to take it.
