3-31-15 In My Darkness

lament

I wake to silly music in my head

And when I try to pray it hangs around.

How pitiful I am to be misled

By such a meaningless and petty sound!

In honesty, I don’t know what to say,

For who am I to speak a word to God?

I get down on my knees, begin to pray,

The things I say just proves that I’m a fraud.

There’s darkness in my mind down to my soul

And I feel dead inside most of the time.

Oh Jesus, I need You to take control!

Please teach me what to say, please help me climb.

The Spirit intercedes with wordless groans. *

Why would I ever think that I’m alone?

~~~~~~~~~~~

Teach us what we shall say unto Him; 

for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.

Job 37:19 KJV

* Romans 8:26

1-10-15 Tittle

tittle

If Jesus said a thing would come to pass

By either the old prophets or himself,

It certainly would happen in its class

And not to be discarded on the shelf.

Then even the small dot above an ‘i’

Could not be cast away before its day,

Because the Lord has purpose to apply

A reason so we know it’s not cliché.

Then every prophecy of Christ came true,

A fact too large to just be swept away,

And even now they still do carry through

So those who know the scriptures know the way.

Be ready, friend, the rest is yet to come,

For Christ will soon return where he left from.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass,

one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,

till all be fulfilled.

Matthew 5:18 KJV

8-24-14 Forever One

an ocean shore

When You began to live within my heart

The world no longer had its hold on me;

You sought me out and from the very start

The chains were loosed and Your love set me free.

I ran into Your arms and disappeared

Dissolving right away as One with You.

There was no ‘I’ the day that You appeared;

These eyes and ears are Yours – this conscience, too.

A drop becomes the sea, forever one

To touch the depths, the coasts and all between;

What’s joined together cannot be undone.

The earth and heavens now can both be seen.

            So when Your spirit touched me I was Yours;

            There’s now one set of footprints on the shore.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV
