Opening The Gift…

image

There is surface level clarity,
Grasping only at the finger tips.
Of God’s outstretched wisdom,
Idle, leaving unwrapped His offered gift.

Meditation upon truth, neglected,
Many unclaimed revelations.
A loyalty to the comfort of ignorance,
Freedom from accountability and obligation.

But there’s more…

The ease of living enlightened,
The light within the truth.
The peace of a deeper relationship,
With a God, who guides and renews.

Rough surfaces get smoother with time,
Avoiding, and escaping snares becomes easier.
If the gift is opened, and understanding is sought,
Through prayer, and in Gods Word…

Aside

The Darkness Lives…

You are the nightmare among floral dreams

You lurk in fear’s shadows

The darkened spaces of earthly edges

And the blackness of haunting echoes

 

You come to kill, steal and destroy

Slithering among the hearts of men

Engulfing the world with temptation and torment

Seeking new souls to damn

 

Your demonic minions terrorize

Inflicting destruction at your bidding

Hiding their existence under the guise of strife

Creating a sense of despair, unremitting

 

You scratch and claw at unseeing eyes

Your blood is as acid burning holes in peace

You know you are defeated

Yet you still tear at flesh, desiring pains release

 

Your power is only that which we give you

The power of our fears and rage

You desperately attempt to fight a battle

You’re destined to lose in the coming days

 

You seek to take as many with you

As you can successfully deceive

You won’t stop in your attempts

And that’s why I watch for you soberly

 

Acknowledge he who hunts you as prey

Know thine enemy

But Do not feed him with your fear

God is stronger than he’ll ever be

The power of love and light

Conquers the powers of hell

God’s word is the sword of the spirit

Used to fight in spiritual warfare

We do not fight flesh and blood

But spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12)

Be vigilant to the end standing firm in hope

Faith is the shield, the devil’s arrows it quenches

Tame The Tongue In Written Word?

ID-10021164

Speech in black and white
Same threat as mouth in action?
Or does it lose might?
______________________________________
I question the written word
Expressing thoughts with edits
Maybe it’s not as dangerous
As the human tongue is
The tongue, mighty and destructive
A small fire ignites the entire forest (James 3:5)
Strange that something so small
Can be packed with such abhorrence
Death and life abide in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21)
And it can’t be tamed by man (James 3:8)
So I’d like to think that black and white
Will give me the upper hand
