Life Beyond Circumstances


This world is circling around itself

Self of man is captured within

God's wisdom has been put on the shelf

That gathers dust to cover sin


Circumstances decide decisions

Disaster seems to have gained control

No knowledge of God, no real visions

No real summer before the fall

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

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

Behold, the new has come…

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

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

What do we know?

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

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

On the Way ... (Photo by Paul Schuberth)

On the Way … (Photo by Paul Schuberth)

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
