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

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

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)

The Blessed Ones

The Law of Christ that could be heard
Upon that mountain through His word
Was authorized by God Himself
To not be put on a mere shelf

Although it was addressed at first
To those disciples who of thirst
Were dying to know more of Life
Which our Lord gave to His wife

Just wait, I’ll tell you what I mean
By these few words you now have seen
His wife, His bride, yes, she is one
With Jesus Christ, with God, His Son

A New Life

Hell-bent in search of excellence
A certain guy, let’s call him Lance
Decided to sit on the fence
He did not want to fail his fans

Once someone has been on the top
He is afraid to be a flop
And clutches at a straw to prop
The set of lies he cannot stop

Not only men like that do fear
To always drive in bottom gear
Because of public in the rear
Which focuses so close and near

Grace Always Prevails

There is a grace for us to keep
That is for children who are sheep
It flows right from the heart of God
Compells us to do what we ought

Though there is still a yoke to bear
This grace empowers us to share
His love that is for everyone
Poured out solely by His Son
