GOD revealed

Post No. 900

GOD revealed

.

The decision was always His to make

The steps were ever His to take

And Jesus Christ was born of man

God revealed in His own plan

In flesh and blood he could relate

He gave His all for love of us

Suffering torment on the cross

He was no figment to still man’s need

Of a saving grace or creed

But the unadorned and newborn babe

Come to earth to conquer death

Hail to Thee O King of kings

All hail to Thee O Lord of lords

Our glorious God is now revealed

GOD

God

God is

God is all

Who stands between you and death

Who gives you your last breath

His is the power

He is the Father

Who holds you to His breast

Open your eyes and see

Open your ears and hear

Today you have a second chance

You’re a lucky one –

Some had none

All you must do is believe

Fill your heart with love

For Jesus who died to forgive

And your sin will be gone

Completely overcome

And we will live

For ever

Footsteps

Post No. 874

.

Footsteps

.

A trail of footsteps lead

across the fine sea sand

washed away in moments

by the incoming tide

gone without a trace

love letters long erased.

.

I walk along the high tide line,

mine are the steps i leave behind

my heart bleeds with every beat

consumed by memories

of a love that died

that couldn’t last from tide to tide.

.

The weight i drag upon my back

in a sack i cannot share

mine to own and mine alone

a task to shoulder willingly

‘til He shows me the way to go

smooths the path for me to follow.

Praise for Grace

Praise for Grace

.

Traversing the dark tunnel of life

I came face to face with Your grace,

Washed clean by Jesus’ blood

Of the new covenant,

Filled with the Holy Spirit

And cloaked by the light of Your love.

Praise God our heavenly Father,

Lord and King of all things:

Hallelujah, Lord of lords!

Hallelujah, King of kings!

Amen

For Love of Your Child

Post No. 816

For Love of Your Child

.

Is there a list that I have missed

Of doing time to fit the crime:

This for that, tit for tat,

Hard to say…

Can we love too much

But it’s not the same

God is God

To be worshipped,

Admired, beloved

And held in awe,

Where you are flesh of my flesh,

Blood of my blood,

Human as me in my mortality.

Search for Shangri-La

Post No. 794

Search for Shangri-La

.

In vain we seek our Shangri-La

In covert hideaways,

Darkest corners,

Shaded, sweet smelling arbours,

Peaceful harbours…

.

There is no shelter from confronting storms,

Where the wind howls and the world quakes;

There is no haven safe enough,

There is nought but faith on which to clutch

As we pray for those we love…

Mercy

Edited

.

O God, King of all kings,

King of all things under the sun

Since life begun,

You mould me like clay

Of which I am made,

But what have I done ~

I am but a tool for Your use,

A nail in Your cross,

The wood for Your saw,

And I always fall short.

Perfection is Yours for the taking,

Yours for the making.

I fail to preach what You teach,

Help my soul to reach,

To touch the hem of Your cloak

To provoke Your healing hands.

Our God

~

The greatest engineer and architect is He
Who designed and built our world
Within a world, within a world, within a world..,
Concentric circles of never-ending immensity –
And He made me!

~

How wonderfully formed are we,
Engineered to the nth degree,
Working to perfection under His protection.
Rejoice, I say, rejoice,
Let our praises ring throughout eternity.

~

Let the mountains echo into space
And the vastness of creation
Unite in adoration,
Glorifying You, O God,
Our Father and our Maker.

This Plastic World

.

We live in a plastic world

Where discards outweigh utility,

Where garbage pollutes air, land and sea

And everything is temporary;

Nature must take a back seat

‘Cos man has learned to manipulate

Greens and meat and all we eat.

Plastic, cardboard used once

Then tossed away. Society tells us

How to think, act and re-act,

Fit the parameters or be a mis-fit,

Clones of idEAlised/idOlised

Specimens of humanity don’t stir the pot,

Blow the snot where it lands –

Out of sight, out of mind.
