Random Faces!

As I stood upon the mountain side

I saw clouds gathering 

The angry storm lungs filling 

For the onset of

 A gruesome howl,

Lighting striking 

Sin’s crushing smirk,

A cold cryptic shadow 

Crept near a nation’s heart.

Random faces

Wrathfulness, Ravenous, Outrage

Consuming a nation into 

Hell’s damming bowels,

Who could hold the torch 

The truth of God’s Light?

Is there not one?

Has the evil darkness won?

~

As I stood upon the mountain side

I retreated to the shadow

Of my Abba Father’s Heart

Where death fears to go.

Crying out

Come Holy Spirit

With Your grace 

Leading 

Random Faces

Of the blind, of the deaf, of the lost,

To Your

 Holy Refuge at the 

Foot of the Cross.

Well the grandson has not completed his part of the challenge, and may never for as he expressed Papa you are the writer and I am one who draws and paints, with pencil and brush. You Papa paint with words placed skillfully on the page.

Well then my dear child paint and draw for me “Random Faces” and I shall place with them these words.

Grace Found!

Long Shadows
Forgotten Prayers
Living Rock
~
Life is filled with
Long Shadows
Satan’s Whip
A stinging dirge of
Forgotten Prayers
Drives me to
My knees upon
The Living Rock
~
My knees
Which I have placed
Upon
The Living Rock
Life is lived to
Completeness under
The Long Shadow
Of the Cross
For the sins confessed
Are the only part of
Forgotten Prayers
~
Long Shadows
Forgotten Prayers
Living Rock
Grace Found

Yesterday was the five-year anniversary of Men of One Accord this year has been one of the hardest years for me to do any writing. My heart is so focused on getting an outreach started for children who have never heard about Jesus. I have also been very poor at keeping up with my WordPress family writings. You all are such great writers and I know I am missing so many blessings from all of you.
Now may the Lord Bless you as He turns His face upon you, Amen!

Faith!

I have never seen
Angels sing to
a babe in a manger,
Yet I sing to Him.
I have never seen
a shepherd bow before
a babe in a manger,
Yet I shall bow to Him.
I have never seen
Kings from a far
bringing gifts to
a babe in a manger,
Yet I bring
Him my heart.

John 20:29, Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

Merry Christmas!

The Shepherd!

The soft whisper
Of the Shepherd
A warming tone
To the battered heart
His gentle touch
Upon the tear-stained  cheek
His strong arms embrace
The broken one
As He carries
His child home.

This poem was inspired by a blogger, a prayer warrior, and a sister in Christ Jesus. https://betsyborchardt.wordpress.com/2016/09/14/love-is-faithful/

Please take a moment and read her loving words she penned to inspire  my heart!

What’s On My Mind?

Matthew 6

 26 “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 27 “Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,

This I have noticed; Worring is like paying the interest on a loan you do not owe.

Faith Tested!

Real faith tested
Bringing glory to the
King of Kings.
Faithful one can
Walk through hell
Even when Hell is blatantly foul
With sin all about is rank,
Yet the aroma of heaven
Surrounds the Faithful.
A faith that is real
Brings Glory to the
King of Kings
As the faithful walk
The tested one
Does not bow his knee
To Nebuchadnezzar
The faithful one worships,
The Faithful one
Dances before the
King of Kings.
As hell is blatantly foul
and sin is rank
The faithful walk
Still
Smelling of heaven
The aroma
The Glory of their
King of Kings

 

I cannot express with words what is going on all about me and how much I miss reading all your encouraging post. Yet I hope to soon return. May the Grace of our Abba Father be poured out upon your days, may His peace be with you, Amen.

Monday Quote!

John Flavel

1627-1691

Above all the studies in the world, study your own hearts; waste not a minute more of your precious time about frivolous & unsubstantial controversies. My dear flock, I have, according to the grace given me, labored in the course of my ministry among you, to feed you with the heart strengthening bread of practical doctrine, and I do assure you, it is far better you should have the sweet and saving impressions of gospel truths, feelingly and powerfully conveyed to your hearts, than only to understand them by a bare ratiocination, or a dry syllogistical inference. Leave trifling studies to such as have time lying on their hands and know not how to employ it. Remember you are at the door of eternity, and have other work to do. Those hours you spend upon heart-work in your closets, are the golden spots of all your time and will have the sweetest influence up to your last hour.”

At the Altar!

At the altar
Called to worship at Yeshua’s altar
The Cross
Where the cleansing blood was shed
***
At the altar
We confess all transgressions
All our sins
All our brokenness  
All our weakness
Called to confession at Yeshua’s altar,
The Cross
Where the cleansing blood was shed
***
At the altar
Is where we commune
Crying out for the lost
Weeping for the sick
Expressing our petitions
Singing love songs
Praising the King
Listening to His directions
Feeding upon His love
Called to communion at Yeshua’s altar
The Cross
Where the cleansing blood was shed.
***
At the altar
Is where we receive
Our forgiveness of sins
Our healing for sickness
Is where we receive
New mercy and grace
Our Strength for today
Called to receive at Yeshua’s altar
The Cross
Where the cleansing blood was shed.
***
At the altar
Is where we celebrate
His forgiveness
of our sins
His healing
of sickness
His strength for today
For our weakness
At the altar
Is where we celebrate
His new mercies
His amazing grace
His unending love
Called to celebrate at Yeshua’s altar
The Cross
Where the cleansing blood was shed.

On the Edge!

After twenty-seven years of learning to walk with Christ
I have seen the faithfulness of Christ is far greater than
My human heart can ever understand.
In His enduring Grace
My faith grows to a level beyond what
My human eyes can see.
As the years have pasted by
My Lord has brought me
To the edge of the sea,
He spoke,
Cross over here!
Standing upon the shore overwhelmed
By the vastness of the great ocean
Fear screams out you shall drown.
Out of the cold darkness
The slanderer, the prince of lies,
The deceiver caterwauling
Your God has brought you here to die
Alone!
~
Yet this I call to mind
And therefore I have Hope:
Because of the Lord’s
Great Love
We are not consumed, for
His compassion are new every morning,
Great is His Faithfulness.
As I step off the
Edge onto Faith
Beyond what my human eyes can see
It is Grace
It is Christ’s Great Faithfulness,
that shall
Carry me to the other side.

l must thank everyone who follows Men of One Accord for your love and prayers and God Bless you all. I do not have the time I had before to keep up with and commit on all your great blogs and for this I am very sorry.

On Wednesday nights I get to spend time with a boys club I have started, pray the Lord uses these boys of His to turn the world right-side-up, Amen!

Tears are Treasures

 Suffering is the refiners fire,

The grace poured out upon

My weakness on my brokenness.

Let me now rejoice,

Rejoice in my suffering

Rejoice in my brokenness 

Rejoice for I am now sharing

In the sufferings of Christ.

Tears my Tears are treasures

Tears are the incense 

Of the Saints poured out

Before the Holy

Abba Father’s Throne.
