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

Salmon River aka The River of No Return – (Photo by Michael Clark)

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.”

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

Where Beauty Lies…

The beauty that was never seen
Can’t be detected on a screen
Instead it’s hidden in the heart
As its most valuable part

This beauty has eternal worth
And does not wither, but gives birth
To evermore of perfect gifts
The more the veil that hid them shifts

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

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

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)

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
