Face to Face

Men of One Accord:

I have tried to write a new Christmas poem this year and what I came up with was poor. Seeing how I have so many new followers now and many have never read this poem I was thinking it might be time to reblog this one. In this poem you will read what Christmas means to me from Dec. 16, 20012; Face to Face. God Bless and Merry Christmas!

Originally posted on Men of One Accord:

 He became a baby,

born in a stable of Bethlehem,

born from a virgin,

wrapped in rags,

laid in a manger,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

He was proclaimed by angels,

worshiped by shepherds,

designated with a star,

sought by eastern wise men,

hunted by Herod,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

Driven into Egypt,

returns to Nazareth,

was strong in the Spirit,

and filled with wisdom,

Abba’s grace was upon Him,

He amazed the scholars,

worked with His hands,

 was only a son of a carpenter,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

He was baptized in the Jordan,

heaven’s regal gates opened,

 like a dove as the Spirit descended,

Abba’s royal thunder exclaimed,

I AM well pleased!

This is My Son,

led into the wilderness,

hungry and thirsty

tested and tempted,

He sinned not,

so we could love Him

Face to Face.

Monday Quote!

Benjamin Franklin

1706-1790

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Comfort or Peace?

Which is it,

I seek

comfort or Peace?

If I am comfortable,

do I truly have Peace?

If I am comfortable

could I not become

complacent?

If I am complacent,

will I not become

fearful,

that I might become

Un-comfortable?

If I am fearful and un-comfortable

then where is

Peace?

Yet if I am

un-comfortable and not fearful

could I still have

Peace?

My Abba,

Let me not grow

comfortable in this world

where I will become

complacent and fearful.

Yet help me to be

un-comfortable in this world

and fill me with Your

Peace.

Amen.

Monday Quote!

Benjamin Franklin

1706-1790

Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.

 

Misty Morning Tears!

On a certain day so long ago,

in God’s garden paradise,

man sinned.

Earth and man are now

cursed.

Watery the grave entered and the

First Misty Morning Tears

Fell.

On a certain day not so distant,

God’s strong arms

will open wide,

Heavenly Gates of Paradise.

Where God’s only Son

shall wipe a way,

the last of

Misty Morning Tears.

Watery the grave has been defeated

forever!

Amen.

Monday Quote!

Benjamin Franklin

1706-1790

Educate your children to self-control to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.

Follow Me!

Abba whispered,

Do you love Me?

Follow Me.

Into the Wilderness of Weakness

I followed.

Feet blistered,

A fever, an inferno engulfed,

self-will burned away

Abba carried me through.

Abba whispered,

Do you love Me?

Follow Me.

To the Water’s of Desperation”

Blacken cold waters of depression

Sucked downward by the

stanchly muck of self-pity

desperate arms thrust around Abba!

Abba carried me to the other side.

Abba whispered,

Do you love Me?

Follow Me.

Climbing upward into the

The Foothills of Fleshly Desire

Rocky outcrops hid

roaring lions of lust

Behind bolder  lurked

Leopards of Lust

Secret pits filled with

Vipers of Physical Pleasure

Crevices concealed

Scorpions of Addiction,

I stumbled!

Abba’s right reached out and took hold,

He declared,

You shall not be

Cast down!

Abba carried me over.

Abba whispered,

Do you love Me?

Follow Me.

Abba pulled out from His

Heart Strings of Love

and wove together

His Golden Cord of Love

then bound me to

His bosom

We ascended together

The Mount of Complacency,

Over the Maze of Laziness,

above the Pits of Apathy,

Abba carried me on His Wings

high above the clouds

to His Garden Plateau

The Garden of Regeneration

Here I walked and rested

by the side of Abba

He taught and spoke of

Hope for the things not yet seen

I feasted upon

Ripen Grapes of Forgiveness

Manna of Truth

and drank of

Blood Red Wine

for the cleansing of all sin,

Upon lush green grass

I laid which restored my soul.

Hand in hand we crossed the garden,

to the place where two paths cross,

One path up the side of a great mountain,

another down into a deep,

dark, fog covered Valley.

With loving eyes Abba spoke,

Today you must choose,

The way you want to go.

The mountain path was steep,

with many a jagged,

razor-sharp pinnacles to scale,

High atop the mountain

looked to be a great treasure,

gleaming a beckoning,

In an alluring song.

The valley path went,

down, down into cold emptiness,

with cries of  helpless brokenness

echoing from the darkness.

Abba I cried,

Let us climb the mountain,

together we can gain the

treasure.

Loving and painstakingly Abba answered,

No, I will not go with you

to the mountain top.

Do you love Me?

Follow Me.

Down, down the steep valley trail

I followed as the

the cries of helplessness

groans of emptiness echoed louder.

Abba came to a fallen log

we sat together.

Abba spoke,

Today you followed Me past

The Mountain of Worldly Ambition and Glory

which leads to eternal death.

In this valley you shall learn

To be the eyes of the blind,

bind the wounds

of the wounded,

Be a shepherd,

to the lost.

In this valley

My words will become your words

your heart shall become

My heart.

You shall now share

in My suffering

which is My Glory.

There is an even greater treasure

on the other side of the valley,

that shall be your Hope,

an eternal life in paradise

with Me.

You love Me.

Follow Me into

The Valley of

Sorrows,

Sufferings,

and

Sour Tears.

Joachim Neander

Praise the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation!

O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!

All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near,

Join me in glad adoration!

AMEN!

Long Time!

It has been a long time I have had been without a real way of going on-line. Yesterday I was given an early Christmas present, a new iPad Mini and also got internet installed in my home. Many of you know I have moved from Florida to Tennessee, where I was able to find a new job. Or should I say a anew job found me, I was recruited by a company out of Washington D. C. and my top-secret clearance was up dated. Not much I can tell you about what I do now, but I leave the house at 3:30AM and return home at around 6:30PM. Also not much time to write, barely enough time to eat and sleep, but it is a new field to harvest.

I want to say to all in the past I tried to keep up with all your post but have not done such a good job, that I am sorry for and ask you to forgive me? I have been very slow on responding to comments and may have miss some, again sorry! The smart phone was far to smart for me to use to keep up!

Hopefully now I may do a better job and soon there shall be a new poem posted soon. I want to thank you all for your prayers and love. May God Bless and keep you may His face shine upon you now and forever, Amen.

Happy Thanksgiving, James

Monday Quote!

Frances Ridley Havergal

Like a river glorious is God’s perfect peace,

Prefect, yet it flowth fuller every day,

Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest;

Over all victorious in its bright increase;

 

Perfect, yet it growth deeper.

Finding, as be promised, perfect peace and rest.
