His Secret Home

 

Walking toward the light together "...that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." - 1 Pt 2:9 KJ 2000 (Picture credits huffingtonpost.com https://drscdn.500px.org/photo/74528065/m%3D900/e5cae7e608a5624683e61d2fa4a71881)

There is a place deep in our hearts
That knows no pain or fear
Troubles may come, troubles may go
This dwelling place stays clear

Of filthiness and awkward pose
Of all that is confused
Oh, and this place is secretly
Our home where we are fused

With Him who’ll meet in privacy
When time and place are right
While our longing to be one
Will be His own delight…

Love flows into our hearts so deep
From liquid light’s supply
Sometimes it makes us want to weep
We tremble with a sigh

The power of His love is great
Greater than man’s device
It melts the hardest human heart
And makes the foolish wise

When God unites two hearts as one
His Love between them grows
He is their source of all that’s good
And out from them life flows…


Thank you for writing this poem with me, Michael! It was a joy to put our puzzle pieces together! 🙂

      Yes, it was an awesome experience and a surprise for me as I had written only three stanzas and then all inspiration was gone. 😛 It seems God wanted you and me to write only half of it since 3 + 3 = 6. 😉

      I am happy to see our first joint poem published, Michael! 🙂

      Indeed, Jack, it was a surprise for me too as I yesterday looked at the first three stanzas and was wondering whether and how they would turn out a “whole” poem. Actually, there was something missing… but what?

      As for half-finished works, oh yes, I know that too, having some half-finished or even
      finished articles in Word docs awaiting publication – or not. Sometimes I felt “thrilled” while writing, yet soon afterwards I looked at the same stuff again and thought, “Eek! Who wrote that? That is anything but interesting!!” 😉

      It seems that God sometimes gives us insights that are very personal, only for us, not to share with anyone else, as Michael once told me and I think that makes sense, too, like the idea of finding a complementary friend and co-writer since the Body of Christ does not consist of separate islands, but of members put together by their Head.

        So true! 😉 In fact, one of the dozen Word docs on my desktop, has only this line:

        “When the Lord gives someone a dream or vision, there is a tendency to believe it was given for the entire body.”

        Of the dreams and visions the Lord has given, most were a kind of classroom simulation or test, to reveal something in me that He wanted to expose and deal with. I’ve suggested as much to others a few times when the dreams and visions they shared with the church at large seemed intended more for exposing their character (response) in a spiritual situation. Would you believe, never once has that insight been well received? It might be the lesson for me is not every interpretation is meant to be shared, either. 😀

        About testing us with situations, whether real or through a dream, vision or word, there’s an interesting exchange between Jesus and Philip before feeding the 5000; Jesus posed a question to Philip to put him to the test (John 6:6). Jesus is still testing and teaching us of course, only the classroom has changed. He leads us through the wilderness of our self until finally He brings us to the place where He dwells – His temple within us. It’s a lot of work to possess this ‘land between our ears’, our heart and to cleanse (purify) this temple that is our body.

        I fully agree with you regarding dreams and visions, Jack. In hindsight I have
        always seen that they were first and foremost for ME, whether they revealed
        my (unsettled) spiritual condition or pointed to the future. God often gives me
        warnings too (mainly one or two days before something really happens).
        However, I never understand these “mind movies” at once because it is all
        spiritual that needs to be interpreted by His Spirit.

      All through the scriptures we see God joining people together; Adam and Eve for a start (“It is not good that man should be alone.”). Then outside of marriage we see, Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Judah and Simeon, Deborah and Barak, etc. In the New Testament Jesus always sent the disciples out in pairs and later we see many of them together like the group in Jerusalem with Peter and James and Paul and Barnabas and Paul and Silas together.

      Too many people today in the churches think about leadership and ministry after the tradition of the Catholic Church, a singular pope over all a singular bishop over the dioceses, a singular priest over the local church, so we have singular pastors and if there is true eldership as it was in the New Testament with multiple elders in each area, it is a rare thing. We still think in terms of being a leader complete in himself and entitled to rule over all ministry that goes on in the local church. And Jack, I know you know what this is like to be under such foolishness.

      Multiple leadership and multiple anointings working together under the leadership of Christ is STILL God’s way and we need to get beyond this Catholic hangover of the “one man band” in the body of Christ.

      Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he has not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevails against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Eccl 4:9-12, KJ2000)

    Thanks, Susanne. It seems that most of what God gives me to share is for a very small minority, not for the masses on the internet. Only the Wind knows what I will publish and when, as you well know from your own walk. Thanks for your encouragement, though. 🐻
