Armor of God Prayer: Based on Ephesians 6:10-17

Father God,

I pray You gird my waist with Your belt of truth,

Infuse my heart and mind with You and Your Word.

Help me hear Your Spirit within,

And always seek Your Kingdom first.  (See Matthew 6:33)

 

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness,

I ask You to protect my Heart always.        (See proverbs 4:23)

Thanks for making me right through The Blood of Jesus,        (See Romans 5:9)

Let Your righteousness serve others through me.        See Ephesians 2:10

 

Shod my feet with The Gospel of peace,

Guide my steps throughout this day.        (See Psalm 119:33-34)

Proclaiming the many gifts of God,

And the peace Jesus offers through faith.        (See Romans 5:1)

 

Enable me to Lift Up the Shield of Faith,

As the evil fiery darts are defeated.

You say no weapon formed against me shall prosper, (See Isaiah 54:17)

Let not the enemy’s plans be completed.       (1 Peter 5:8)

 

I place upon my head the Helmet of salvation,

Protect my mind from all that’s not of You.

Sanctify me until the day of completion, (See Philippians 1:6)

And shelter me from all untruth.

 

Give me strength to wield the Sword of the Spirit,

Your Words are Powerful and filled with Might.  (See Hebrews 1:3)

You Created the universe and all within it,       (See Genesis 1)

Thank You for The Way, The Truth and the Life.        (See John 14:6)

 

As I venture into the day You have planned,

Help me listen and cooperate with Your Spirit.

Armed and protected, by the Armor,

WhichYou so graciously have gifted.

 

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen.

LIVE MIRROR… (Based on photo title from blog theobviousandhidden.com)

Photo Title: Live Mirror

Photo Title: Live Mirror

Live mirror…
Activated by the tears of momentary regret and hopelessness.
Spaces between are the clarity of needed renewal,
and the brilliant light of optimistic potential.
My crashing life held in tact by both the real and illusory branches of the shedding trees.
There is motion.
I am part of this moving ecosystem.
The rhythmic echoes sustain me.
The live mirror is life.
I am alive.
And I will move forward.

The Obvious and The Hidden is one of my favorite blogs to follow. The titles that are applied to his amazing photography are perfection! I was searching through the history, since it’s been a good while that I’ve been on wordpress, and I went to May 10th- my sobriety date (2014). Note: this photo may be found in 2015. I was moved to remember that day and combine it with the success of today when writing this piece- a little over 17 months clean/sober and feeling great! I kind of dropped off wordpress at that time. Which is crazy!!! My, how time flies!! I was soooo active before. Miss all you guys. Trying to jump back in. Peace to you all.

Serenity IS…

Kingman Wash in Arizona. Iphone snap

Crystal jewel amid desert rigidity,
Exposed in willing transparency.
Deep tonal blue your reflective canopy,
Your icy December embrace still entices me.

My fingers playfully seek
Expectant through chilled caress,
Revitalize me.
I feel the settled stones,
You and time have smoothed diligently.
And respectfully I acknowledge,
You haven’t always known such serenity.
Rugged unpolished rocks,
Droughts and waters raging.
Yet I know and remember when trials oppress,
Serenity IS, and when absent, will again be…

Oceanic Pause…

Encapsulated
By stretch of an ocean wave
Embraced by the sea

Above The Tangible… (Writer’s Digest Poem A Day Challenge Day 23)

For today’s prompt, write a location poem. Location could be physical–Or location could be emotional, psychological, metaphysical, or some other kind of word that ends in -al. Or surprise everyone!

image

Among the clouds
I drift away
Soft into the spring sky.

All that surrounds
Is the peace
Within my glowing mind.

Bird’s melodic verses,
Sifted by distance
Are companions to my ears.

The warmth of the sun
Blankets my soul,
As the tangible disappears.

Suspended by draping moments
Encapsulated by their own passing,
My heart beats in pace with serenity.

And suddenly I’m aware.
I will have to descend once more,
To a world abrasively consuming.

Peace Through The Right Violence… poem A Day Challlenge. Prompt: violent and or peaceful

Today’s Poem A Day prompt:
– a violent poem and/or a peaceful poem.

Take the anger, take the rage,
Cast them in a hurricane.
Smash them into pieces.
Toss them deep in sweltering flames.
Smother their pitch with the sun.
Slice them with an unforgiving blade.
Rip them to irreparable shreds.
Take from them their spirits and names.
Drown them far below the sea.
Bind them forever in spiked chains.
Torture them slowly with precision.
For peace, my friends…must reign!

Seek From Within…

image

Look within,
What you seek is there.
Awaiting discovery,
To meet you at “truly aware”.

You’re always looking to the world,
To quench your desire for peace.
From the noise and chatter,
Finding only temporary relief.

You already have all you need,
The fruit of The Spirit is ever present.
Joy, peace, and self control,
Illuminated opalescence.

Until the world’s illusory solutions,
Are abandoned for the truth inside.
Your peace will remain surface-affixed,
Internal endowments offer a peace…infinitely multiplied.

In or Out Of Touch??????

I sometimes feel free, in an otherworldly pull,
A drag into slow motion.
Lifted from that which surrounds,
Connected to all that is.
Eyes seeking to remain closed,
Dreaming awake in full consciousness.

A pull I sometimes seek to maintain,
To merge, lean into with surrender.
Thoughts on pause, mind now filled with still light.
Peace…dare I imply?
Serene in a suspended moment?
So sweet, dry tears drift slowly by…

Music, entrancing,
Lifting me, transcending.
Insides soft and electric, aware of my presence,
A way to be high without chemical interference.

The music stops.

A Connection To The Sea…

image

There is a shell beside me now,
I retrieved from the ocean blue.
I place my ear against its form,
Hearing the sounds of waves made new.

The air is laced with a delicate mist,
The wind is random and sporadic.
Gulls soar and dive with precision,
I know electric enchantment in the synaptic.

Individual grains of sand take flight,
Capsules of histories’ lasting imprints.
Evidential footprints untouched,
To be washed away by salty grips.

The feelings adrift within my core,
Align with the tides’ ebb and flow.
Calmness blankets my spirit,
Peace refreshes my soul.

I am wrapped in solitude’s stillness,
Safe upon the diminishing shoreline.
As I ponder things of old,
Swallowed by the sea over time.
