8-5-15 Two As One

Two as One

6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Mark 10:6-9 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

A man should leave his parents for his wife

And she should cleave to him the same way, too.

Their marriage bond should last for all their life,

For they are one in essence, no more two.

God made both man and woman for this end,

To share a single love that’s greater still.

He fit them perfectly to then transcend

The normal bond of friendship and good will.

What God intended let no man pervert;

One woman and one man are meant to be,

And any other way would then subvert

The sovereign will of God, His set decree.

Then two as one becomes one with the Lord;

Beloved and beloved, one accord.

5-1-15 Forgive

Forgive

Forgive the ones who do you wrong today;

Forgive the ones who know not what they do.

Forgive each time you raise your eyes to pray;

Forgive them though they know they’re hurting you.

Forgive the ones who fill their hearts with hate;

Forgive the ones who want you hateful, too.

Forgive offenses both the small and great;

Forgive them though their words are all untrue.

Forgive the ones who won’t forgive you back;

Forgive the ones who go to court and sue.

Forgive although your honor they attack;

Forgive them though they break your back in two.

And when you so forgive your Father will

Forgive your trespasses and love you still.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And when ye stand praying, forgive,

if ye have ought against any:

that your Father also which is in heaven

may forgive you your trespasses.

Mark 11:25 KJV

3-24-15 One From Two

manandwoman

Both man and woman did the Lord create

To compliment each other perfectly,

So when it comes for one to take a mate

Look on the other to make harmony.

When God made Eve from Adam it was good,

For man was not designed to be alone.

God made her from his side it’s understood

So he would have a helper, not to own.

Then mankind can’t survive with man on man,

And woman can’t conceive from woman, too.

The human race needs both, for that’s God’s plan;

Together to become as one from two.

As she is made for him and he for her,

The union of them both new life occurs.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman,

neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 11:11 KJV

3-9-15 Love Your Wife

marriage love

The love a husband has for his own wife

Is true and tender, gentle, warm and wide,

Protecting her from harm with his own life,

Attending to her needs as can provide.

This love is as the Savior loved the church,

Unselfish, sacrificial, just and pure,

And if she lose her way then lead the search,

Or if she comes down ill then find the cure.

A husband loves his wife with all he has,

And as the Lord loves him, he has it all.

Forsaking everything exactly as

The Lord forsook His blood for Adam’s fall.

O husbands! Love your wives as Christ loves you,

Becoming then in essence one from two.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Husbands, love your wives,

even as Christ also loved the church,

and gave himself for it

Ephesians 5:25 KJV

7-18-14 In the Midst

two or more

You know that I am with you night and day,

Much closer than the pulsing of your heart;

So when there’s two or more of you to pray

Or gather in My name, I will take part.

My Spirit in your midst does magnify,

And with your eyes wide open you will see

Reflected in your faces I am nigh,

Attending to your needs; you’re part of Me.

I’m with a congregation or just two;

My Love brings you together now as one

To minister and lift each other to

A knowing that our Father’s Will be done.

Where two or more are gathered in My name,

So there I am among you like a flame.

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

For where two or three are gathered together in my name,

there am I in the midst of them.

Matthew 18:20 KJV
