Ever really consider
how well we know
what we thought we knew

How common the man-made laws
of sneezes kneejerking “bless you”
“Happy Birthday”
terms of baes & boos
99% of the other
modern-day posturing we do
like insecurities with the hands we’re dealt
focusing instead on making a point away
from prayer or that which is truly Biblical

The way we sample and remix
our favorite parts of Holy Word
you’d think one of us were
responsible for writing
The Song.

One day
I sought new ones to share
with new ears
among today’s brightest and best

The charts were soaked
by melodic tears that persisted
in tales of (anybody else) being bad
at love, life, sobriety, unearned Grace…
everything

Forget Redeemed sinners like me
if you will
God Has Not, Cannot, Shall Never

Still, I see how it can be
disheartening to some
that
the enemy can convince
who would claim elect pedigree

The absence of visible chains
on humble clothing, at that
or ears that ring without reason
aren’t even
the slightest proof
that we aren’t flooded with ice
all the same

Inspiration and Interpretation are Facilitated
by The Holy Spirit or not at all
He Informs
He Warns
Luckily, True Love is not only performing
but a warming Art
beloved brother, sister
regardless of the world view
being skewed

His Law and His paradox Are Perfect
and His Prevention Is Abundant Blessing
Accept, then, that Full Power
of its understanding or undoing are His alone
#sorrynotsorry

P.S. Alms are made
however generously
with discretion

Just
as fearfully
wonderfully
cheerfully
altogether lovely
as we’re Born…again and…

The nutritious solitude
of a mother’s core
is the daily news page
upon which Creation Is Written
according to The Most High

Sure as you live
someone out there has
desired/guessed/spoken for or against your being
since their own cord was cut
So what

Even for their good
now unto Him
I give all cares and anxiety
choosing The Best Part—The Blood.

Regardless, “who [but GOD] can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9-10)

The king of diamonds hides
coolly, calculating
decked out among others
in the box

At the table
for entertainment Purpose only
we insist we want to be called
in The Most High saints’ Number
yet answer to much lower summons
every week of the year
unaware

Pastime…

For generations
a Heaven-hating agenda
slung much smoother stones
back at God’s anointed people
until they became flattered

There will all-ways be variations of:
You’re the best
Nevermind the still healthy heart helping you second-guess sin
or
that spade The True King Handed you to carry your swept flesh away

Nice suit
There’s dis establishment
that loves lookers like you
You deserve the spot, a sunshine state in Life

I’ve heard you say it
read your typing
but you don’t really believe
‘Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light’
Do you…

Less about how a Certain One Bears you up or any of that new grain, wine, skin stuff, tho’
How about some spirits for a real one,
strong like your Self?
Of course you don’t need any help
Those elders (under The Breath: *who survived me*) are hypocritical, jealous haters
Chase them.
Don’t let them fool you

Especially if it’s not you
but your company
all those curses are fine, too
That other Voice you were playing
when you came in will surely Return
if it really belongs to your Friend
Trust me…

I can tell you’re a great Christian.
That’s why I poured you only a little sip
How about those vapes?
You don’t have to smoke
Just be here…in the mi(d)st
Loosen up your shirt
Get freer with your skirt a bit
It’s hot!

Besides, it’s only for a little fun
Is it not?
————-

A’ight…Stop.

Legerdemain, or sleight of hand, is one of the enemy’s tricks since before ANY of us were begotten: drinking, cup games, card games, word games, opiates, sex trafficking, other designed gangs, etc. continue to spoil so many corps rotten.

The m.o. often involves mutual confusion, stress/headaches, lavish attention on areas of (former?) insecurity or overconfidence leading to the pride that angers The Heavenly Father followed by attempts at quick blameshifting•cover ups/fixes•material reward•mockery•shaming in compromised or weaker area(s) and diverse, often staged silencing of those who awaken to the Truth.

If parts of The Bible when presented by another are considered uncomfortable ancient history, then recent news should be enough to Encourage The Quickening Brea(d)th of Ephesians 6:12 on every child of GOD’s face!

The antiChrist spirit, not any of our past and prayerfully no longer repeated susceptibility to it, is what every brother & sister of Jesus must fight, not each other; preferably together.

If we truly look beyond ourselves as He Looks beyond our faults to Reach us, we’ll come to understand that the fast talk & fine print of most commercial disclaimers are more legalistic than we disregard the occasional church mother and such for allegedly being.

We might even be less inclined to ravenously consume anything their respective industries dish us.

Further, no advisory label can sufficiently exorcise the fables of seemingly innocent, culturally-enabled base spirits once transmitted any more than condoms can shield against lust or infidelity.

Why celebrate such contradictions surrounding the notion of choice yet refuse to see how we invite challenges to our own rebirth in Christ?

Let’s choose (again) this day:
•the lovingly fearful knowledge of The LORD over teetering on the ledge between His Will and the world.
•to let The Holy Spirit, not any demon, have the greatest influence and dominion over our lives.

I love you in Jesus’ Rightful & Matchless Name.

How He Move

1cee1943f2aead0d1a23b8103b4fe4ae--spiritual-gifts-spiritual-thoughts

I love The Way
Man’s fear is not the admission
price for Salvation
but Jesus’ Blood Is

Pure despite ingrafting
More indelible than the deepest stain
Iron-rich in Compassion for the poor
yet free every go-round

The Son Has It
so a new thing Shall all-ways Spring
We learn and teach patience in the process
of growing up
and/or
deeper, hopefully, in Him
After all
even Earth’s burial grounds are The LORD’s
The fullness thereof, Given

One weak…
I saw two surrender to longsuffering
while countless others cried and cursed
in and out of character
for more expensive, less effective medicine

It can’t be easy
to battle addiction, demons
yet embrace The Most High
with equal and opposite fervor to an enemy who somehow enters quiet, secure rooms
daily swept clean
Cameras can’t detect them
They never sign in

Invisible to the worldly eye
fallen angels strive to keep the vulnerable
company provoking them to misery
through escalated depths
of visual, auditory noise
desperate to confuse
those who would hear The Master’s Voice

If the comfortable Christian would also count those persecutions they know nothing of as reason to praise God
the joy might feed reverence that feeds humility that feeds masses to move mountains by faith alone
No pyramid schemes, but a Great GOD thing

Some must first plead guilty for an impromptu visit with the team
We watch torment travel throughout the unit
finding it difficult to stay
Though He Shows up differently
for you and me
Jesus’ Sovereignty, then, Is identical now and all-ways
I have no doubt
some of us plead
paperless Coverage of that same Blood
to start the day…

Night…

Shift, whatever it is.

Pass over
the murderer
the sex offender
the cutter•spitter•fighter…
and go your own way, Sheol
This circle is no incubator for the father (or offspring) of lies
Even the eldest’s wrinkles are now boundary lines in Christ
reading “DO NOT. CROSS!”

The peripheral eye witnesses
those alive in peace
prepared to protect me
I’m not designed to blush, but smile readily
inside
A quick salute is seen once
I return to duty

Figure eight-wise, figuratively foreign wives have taken eyes captive relative to The Bride of Christ for a long time.
Even the fairest and wisest of men once exchanged Truth for a talisman.
How the trappings of modern Life and privilege pave ways to sin!
With God’s Time and Purpose, a sound mind may return after genuine repentance from lessons learned.

As much as I have failed self & others in varied areas
The Holy Spirit Cannot
so I’m happy to follow His Lead
no longer rushing ahead without Him

Silent groans aside
I must say that I’m amazed
how He Moves right
into every place we didn’t
even know we need(ed)

A Cleansing
Breath of fresh air
or Anointing
with refining Fire
where wrong tried its best to have the last word

It’s ok…and an honor to finally trust
The Advocate > accuser
Comforter > competitor
Teacher > traitor
Friendship > folly or having to force another into faith

My Companion…

Roll Call

Daily

The Most High GOD calls us

out of her ~ the Babylonian/world ~ system

which includes a lot more than meets

the natural

‘I’

 

The methods vary.

 

Once i received the inclination

to reduce then end

my secular music intake

moving on His word too slowly

still turning

to the local urban contemporary station

ready to switch

should its content & decency not mix

 

Before long

every turn on

hours or days apart

featured the same dead artist

 

There was one exception

A change of station presented

an unchanging God

through opening chords

to “Walk Like An Egyptian”

 

My heart heard Him clearly

‘Don’t undo My deliverance

Leave that alone!

Amen…’

 

We are all given a role

maybe two & so forth

according to His purpose

 

This morning

i am inspired to create or find & modify

a cinnamon-raisin roll recipe

to prepare with Love

yet no leaven

 

leaf and medicine (1)

Beyond “M…e”

God takes note of each

instrument, scoring Heaven

measure for measure.

Your chosen; right

necks to You – their pulse visibly strongest in the land

|

Shoulders & backs – multigenerational support of the upright Word; knowing what to carry, what to turn from

|

Arms & hands –  for carriage, service and solidarity that don’t partake of idleness

|

Chest – precious home of heart treasures and breath of Life; covered by jewels of Your entrusted wisdom

|

Gut – from where we cry unto You; receiving and processing the nourishing milk & meat of Your Spirit

|

Hips & groin – to gird and further birth Your gospel

|

Legs – to help us move on the promises of Your way, truth & life

|

Feet – with which to stand on God’s promises and, in due time (often somewhere near 64) per His holy will, rest there.

Pause & reflect.

“You Send Me”

i don’t recall

how the conversation began

with that man

only that it was on a familiar street

with a strange request

for people who’d just randomly met

‘A classic song, please?’

“You Send Me”


That was then

Both of us have long left

that summertime corner

years later complete with a lovely mural

of ladies called Justice, Motherhood, Liberty

and even i

make strange requests now


That the foe or friend

Holy Spirit took in hand

forcing my rebirth or gently hold mine

as i learned to walk

again

understand how i adore God for them;

simply awaiting His direction

regarding my assignment(s) under Heaven

since Christ issued

my passport.

Alone Together

By definition

in part

“at least one member of the pair

benefits from the relationship;

the other member, maybe”

 

Ours has begun

albeit not commensal

The Blood came

to freely bless

absent of parasitism

The honor of God

mutual

as able

 

neither goose

anymore susceptible

to improper ganders

nor in need of keeping up

appearances

 

Instead

i am just Living

with Life

not average

or upset

but within

healthy means

as God sees

fit

 

like

symbiosis




Wear Your Size

Some classic songs and whomever taught us to dress

emphasize the importance of wearing our sizes

i.e. what is suitable for your dimensions


We dress:

  • in the uniforms of our duties
  • in the nudity of our birth & comfort
  • in the style of the day
  • in what the weather, environment suggests
  • in second skins to enhance & reveal what we feel are strengths
  • in flowing garments akin to freedom of movement 
  • in leaves of shame
  • in the sackcloth of humble repentance
  • in prodigal robes
  • in righteousness, praise, Love

Do you fit there, in

Are you just trying (others); perhaps, too hard


Some seek

to explain the omnipresence, the ubiquity, the ‘All-ness’

of the Holy Trinity


 

i believe

more than the time, frame

it is the fullness of Holy Spirit

within wo/man that

makes the difference


The Bible teaches

of three heavens

allowing room within God

for Infinity and a Bride

the shape of which is to die for

altogether lovely yet

massive enough for many mansions


Let us

pursue fitness for The Kingdom.
