4-9-15 The Bond of Peace

Bond of Peace

The Holy Spirit binds us all as one

Who came unto the shadow of the cross

And gave our life to Christ, God’s first-born Son,

Now counted closer than a family’s gloss.

So here we are as one and Spirit led.

The things that caused contention surely cease,

For now the love of Christ’s the common thread

That brings so naturally a bond of peace.

Where there was once dissension we find grace,

No longer slave to sin and anger’s hook;

Forgiveness helps us run the longer race,

A stamina not gained by hook or crook.

When differences arise within the flock,

The key of Christ will open any lock.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit

in the bond of peace.

Ephesians 4:3 KJV

12-7-14 Nowhere

foggy landscape

Your spirit dwells within my blood and breath,

And binds the fabric of the universe.

You guide my birth and hold my hand in death,

And every moment in between traverse.

Your omnipresence guides the wind of change;

You mark the path of elephant and ant.

You move the atom, set the mountain range,

You make the tree frog peep, the monk to chant.

Where could I go to get away from You?

You’re even in my very soul and mind.

No matter where I run You are there, too.

There is no place to go that you can’t find.

Why would I ever want to run at all?

My God, forever more You are my all!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Whither shall I go from thy spirit?

or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

Psalm 139:7 KJV
