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…

Seeing God with a Pure Heart
(Photo Credit © 2014 Jem Trehern – OurChristianIdentity.com )

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

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

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

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

What do we know?

Songs of Songs – THE Love Story (Picture taken from https://helpmeunderstandall.files.wordpress.com)

As long as all that what we know
Comes from this earth, from down below
From seeing all as if a show
As it was always, long ago

The truth behind cannot be seen
Unless we fluctuate between
The unseen realm where king and queen
Already live redeemed and clean

The Light of Salvation

His Life eternal here on earth
Who sees its beauty and its worth?
Although our eyes are opened now
It’s dimly view, through glass somehow

Into His realm, into His face
Beholding Him, receiving grace
Empowered by His Love, so true
To share His blessings, no one knew

Before God made them manifest
Giving His Spirit to these blessed
To you and me, to everyone
Who have believed in Christ, the Son

Where Roses Melt into the Air…

Your arms, they gently shelter me
From blame, and fear, and misery
You understand what others don’t
You saw my need which others won’t

You give me peace in hardships now
You ease my pain and touch somehow
The deepest depths inside of me
Indeed, my love, you’ve set me free

To climb the mountains by your side
To bridge the gap where there’s divide
To care for wounds of these depressed
Who suffer until they are blessed

In Heaven with YOU…

Somebody asked me, “What will be
After this life, what shall I see?
Am I then merely pure essence?
Or does my life still make some sense?
Where is my past, is it all gone?
Or do I still feel what’s my own?
Without my body, who am I?
What really happens when I die?
Who’s got the answers, the reply?”
My friend, now I feel rather shy

Since, indeed, I once was near to death
For some time been sheer out of breath
Before I had a lot of pain
But suddenly there was no chain
To hold me back in this frail body
Which I thought to be only shoddy
I swiftly was pulled all out of me
But still had a body I could see
That body, yet, it felt no aches
Was perfect, weightless, without brakes
