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…

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)

Inspiration for the nation
For the crowd behind the cloud
Food for thought and divine drink
Found between workplace and sink

Is what we need first and foremost
Heaven’s breath, the Holy Ghost
Who will free us thoroughly
From life’s burdens – endlessly

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

Hope In the Midst of Suffering

So slowly in the course of years
Though filled with joy, yet full of tears
The soul was peeled like onion’s skin
Sometimes all health was wearing thin

Through darkness and thick foggy clouds
The Surgeon’s scalpel exposed doubts
Which hindered her to trust in Him
And made her vision grow so dim

No human being loves the pain
But suffering is not in vain
When healing follows in the dawn
After the night through which she’s drawn

Into a morning, not yet known
Where seeds of life that have been sown
Through divine hands of Him who sees
The outcome of His planted trees

Will show their fruit which grown in dark
Begin to gleam and leave a spark
Inside her eyes that saw the One
Whose light shone brighter than the sun…


Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Rom 5:1-5 ESV)

Do Not Worry

Rev 21:5 ESV And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (Picture taken by Susanne Schuberth)

Do not worry
Nor feel sorry
For those things
You cannot change

Just remember
It’s November
And that springs
Are within range

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

In Your Arms…

There is a land not known before
Where surging billows touch the shore
Not loud and mighty as you’d think
But soft and slightly on the brink

Of a new life you could not see
As long as you swam in the sea
Of trouble, trial, and distress
You thought that life was all a mess

But suddenly and unforeseen
There is the King who calls His Queen
To leave the troubled sea behind
And enter rest that’s God-designed

The Mystery of God’s Love

Divine Dust Disclosed (Photo by Susanne Schuberth)

You took the soul and said to her,
“My love, do come, and let me stir
Your heart and all that slept so long
Under a veil that seemed so strong

As if there was no final goal
For which I made you and your soul”
Intrigued by You and Your sweet voice
The longing soul knows there’s no choice

The Beauty Within

Beyond Imagination (Picture taken from http://rap.genius.com/Outkast-slum-beautiful-lyrics)

When the day turns to night
And I’m losing all sight
I do know what will be
And what I then may see

Through that dimly lit glass
There shines beauty first-class
As He opens the gate
To our eternal fate
