Peace that surpasses all understanding

Don’t let us be anxious

The Lord is at hand

He cares for the living

The dead and those banned

From taking a stand

Against Satan’s devices

Of tricky lie’s brand

Which, cut into slices

 

They could understand

And see they’re kept under

The devil’s control to fit

Into systems they should rather quit

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…

Eternal Life – in the Here and Now

Strength comes from knowing
Not from knowing that much
But from knowing the One
Who with Heaven’s sweet touch

Transforms life and longing
That was earthly and bound
By fears, grief, and sorrow
Which are truly profound

The King’s Palace… or The River of No Return

Once upon a time there was a King who had a Son
And His beloved Son withal was His only one
They erst lived far away in a realm of only day

Where Light is, Love and everything
Of which no human could have dreamed
Delight and bliss, no dark shade there

But one day they said, “We will share
Our divine life with man on earth
Through incarnation and new birth.”

God’s Light comes in the Night

When the SON rises... (Wallpaper)

When the SON rises… (Wallpaper)

The presence of God was a big surprise
For man who was used to blood sacrifice
As God left the place where He dwelt before
And commanded that blood was put at the door

That was a new sign and a gift for us to explore
When He sacrificed His Son who was pierced to the core
To take away the sins of this fallen world
When He died and rose, His ascension unfurled

God’s fully unseen realm which has come to us
In Christ’s Spirit alone without a big fuss
Through the precious Holy Ghost on Pentecost
Who now helps us see that there’s nothing to boast

Like Little Children…

Crossing the Jordan… 😉

A child, so humble and so bold
To rise against unrighteous cold
Unkind and loveless heresy,
Is hard to find apparently

Instead you see them quarrelling
About what’s right or wrong, they cling
To doctrine, dogma ill-conceived
And leave their audience deeply grieved

Entering His Rest…

Entering His Rest…

As long as there are dreams and wishes
Unfulfilled
And burning pain that cuts all through to
Get us killed
We have not yet arrived where
Freedom reigns
And only peace of mind with
Joy remains

Behold, the new has come…

After a long winter..... (Photo by Susanne Schuberth)

Like a blank sheet of paper
Perfected by His scraper
The new man knows not who he was
Before he has been freed for cause

It seems there never was a man
Who thought of sin and how he can
Escape from this life’s evil fates
And find on earth safe haven’s gates

That open up and help him run
From wickedness and all that’s done
By man who knows not what will be
As soon as God has set him free

Behold, His Kingdom’s Promised Land
Is reached by those who understand
That it has always been that close
As their own breath is to their nose

🙂


 Jesus answered them,

“Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (Jn 8:34-36 ESV)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Cor 5:17 ESV)

Thank You…

Thank You for some laughter in the rain
And for tears of joy mixed up with pain
For new life that follows death
Resurrection’s first fresh breath

Breathed on us out of clear sky
That makes dry bones surely sigh
See, flesh and skin from on high
Yes, His kingdom’s life is nigh

O Eternal God
The soul longs for You
Cause You bless the soul
With unspeakable
Delight…

What a burning love
That came down from You
Through Your Spirit’s coal
With unthinkable
Bright light…

Set off fireworks
Though invisible
To nature and man
Branded on her heart
Fulfilled is Your plan
