Silent Winter!

Voiceless Mountain
Jackal Sleeplessness
Weary Sobs
Cacophonous Dread
Silent Winter
Depression.
Yeshua Speaks,
My soul responds
Grasping His
Garment’s hem,
Child be Still
Peace.
Yes Lord;
So be it!

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.

The Storm

Out to sea this vessel set sail

Winds soon turned to gale

Battering waves besieged

 Vessel’s hull bucked

Sea spilled in

 The vessel stalled

Making no way against the wind

At all.

Till the Master spoke:

Peace My child

Be still.

This vessel is going to

The other side.

Into the eye of the storm

This vessel did sail.

Winds claimed

As waves retreated

Pumps engaged

Oceans’ water returned

To the sea

Hands hasten

Hatches re-fortified

Planks re-fasten

Heart beats slowed

Deep breaths taken,

As the Master spoke:

Peace my child

Be still.

This vessel is going to

The other side.

Out of the eye of the storm

This vessel did sail.

Cyclone determined

To make its final rail

Winds growled

The tempest hailed.

Timbers strained

Ribbing twisted

Planking cracked

Seams leaked

The vessel was surely lost.

Till the Master spoke:

Peace My child

Be still.

This vessel has reached

The other side.

Again I have been inspired by another blogger!

The Leper’s Prayer

This Poem has touched my heart, for they are the words I could not find within my own self to pray as in needed. Amen and Amen !!

O’ Wretched Soul

These poems are a collaboration of two souls who write for the love of Yeshua.

O’ This Wretched Soul

An original  from days past by James Neff of Men Of One Accord

******

O’ this wretched soul

of mine

over hell’s fire suspends

to be lost for all time

obstinate awaiting life’s end.

O’ this wretched soul

stone cold harden heart

toiler chained to villainy

to be forever hell’s tart

lost ship in the sea of iniquity.

O’ this wretched soul

 naked before the Father’s Throne

pungent humiliation shadow of life

another sinner scorned

scourged by strife.

O’ this wretched soul

is there any hope for me?

will Yeshua’s forgiveness Flow?

can Yeshua set this soul free?

I plead for Yeshua hell’s debt to suspend

upon which now this soul depends.

prostrate before Abba’s Throne

please take this prodigal back Home?

O’ this wretched soul

of mine.

Amen.

O’ Wretched Soul

A new take on an original by Deborah Gomez of awomansaved.

 O’ Wretched Soul | awomansaved

*****

O’ wretched soul

raging

unbending I await life’s end

burning

whilst over hell’s fire I suspend

O’ wretched soul

hardened

is this stone cold heart

languishing

in bitter taste of hell’s tart

O’ wretched soul

chained

is this sinner to villainy

sailing

lost in this sea of iniquity

O’ wretched soul

scourged

by strife this leper left scorn

naked

in humiliation before the Father’s Throne

O’ wretched soul

awaken

to Yeshua’s redemptive flow

given

to you is His forgiveness to sow

Never again left to suspend

on His love you now depend

He has heard your prayer’s voice

O’ wretched soul

rejoice!

The Necktie of Purpose: A poem

Here is a poem I think you find that stretches  you out a wee bit!

Dyslexic

the world sees from left to right

or the world looks right to left

the world perceives from up to down

or the world views down to up

the world differentiates right angles

yet the world cannot discern 

the canker worm

expanding from the center out

Now Who has the learning disability? 

Jeremiah 5:21; Hear this now, O foolish

people.

Without understanding,

Who have eyes and see not,

And who have ears and hear

not.

Trials Into Blessings!

I have a coworker who became a good friend, so I started to pray for him. Steve’s life was going along real good: But God had plans for Steve’s life. Steve was to be broken, divorce was coming, his life was to be torn apart, he was to be thrown into a pit with no way out. At the start of his divorce he became very depressed and wanted to kill himself, his wife and all his family. I have walked this road myself Jesus found me at the bottom of this pit. I said some things to Steve in away most men of God would not talk. I also used language most men of God should never use. Steve had to hear and understand so I spoke his language. Of course I could have used a ball bat, or even a golf club, they work just as well for tact. My idea of tact is to use a nine pound sledge-hammer to drive a thumb tack into a cork board. It may not be pretty but it will get the job done. My method of console is best understood by bloody knuckle blue-collar workers only.

Yes, I remember the Greek word for comfort; paraklesis: to come along side because you are invited: When a vessel at sea is in distress the aiding vessel must be invited, to come alongside to give aid. It does not mean you shall not use a fire axe if a fire axe is needed to combat the demons of hell.

This story goes on and on and it is still going on but there is a point to it. God used all the suffering in my life to walk with Steve and sometimes even carry him through his trials. Steve did make peace with God, and so did his seventeen year old daughter. As I think all of the things that I have suffered through, God for His Glory has used my trials to comfort someone else. My trials were not only for my good, but my trials were also used to bless another and another and another. Just like a pebble dropped in a pond the blessing only goes out. Only a God of love can do that!

Out of this story comes the poem Trials!

Just for the record I wrote the story first, but I posted the poem first a dyslexic will do that!

ABYSS!

an immeasurable depth

an unimaginable divide

an un-payable debt

an unmendable disrepair

an unthinkable disgrace

an unescapable dilemma

an  unforeseeable darkness

 Abyss!

the seven sealed seals upon the scroll

who is worthy to open the scroll?

who is worthy to break the seals?

the scroll, the title-deed

 to my soul.

 ransoms to be redeemed

a required payment

 tariffs to collect

 charges assembled

 duties imposed

account overdraft

bankrupt

 Abyss!

the seven sealed seals upon the scroll

who is worthy to open the scroll?

who is worthy to break the seals?

the scroll, the title-deed

to my soul.

behold the right hand of

I AM upon the Throne

the scroll, the title-deed

to my soul.

a strong angel loudly proclaims

who is worthy to open the scroll?

who is worthy to break the seals?

the scroll, the title-deed

to my soul.

can one be found in heaven?

can one be found on earth?

can one be found under the earth?

none can be found

that can take the scroll

the title-deed to my soul!

bitterly I weep!

Abyss!

The Lion of the tribe of Judah

In the midst of the Throne

 the four living creatures

in the midst of the elders

stood the Lamb that had been Slain

when He came He did not take

the scroll, the title-deed to my soul

from the right hand of

I AM who sat on the throne.

prostrate I bowed at the feet of

 the Lamb that had been Slain.

woefully I proclaimed You are

Yeshua Messiah

Lord of Lords

King of Kings!

I pleaded Lord, Lord

did I not speak inspiration

did I not heal

did I not perform many wonders

in your Name?

Please take the scroll, the title-deed

to my soul!

save me from

Abyss!

the Lamb that was Slain spoke:

you never surrendered your heart

you never surrendered your will

you never repented your sin

I never knew you

depart from Me you evil servant.

the scroll with the seven seals, the title-deed

to my soul

was handed over to the strong dark angel

 tossed into a

  lake of fire

forever torment

 unquenchable thirst

unstoppable agony

everlasting torture

unending anguish

eternal misery

the seven sealed seals upon the scroll

the scroll, the title-deed

to my soul

over the Lamb that was Slain

I stepped forever into

Abyss!

GONE ASTRAY!

 The sheep have all ran away!

Where did the Master’s sheep go astray?

Was it when the hireling  was collecting his purse?

 So many lambs are needing to nurse!

Listen listen as they cry out,

lost sheep running all about.

We are lost we are lost we have wandered far away!

We are entangled in these briers, come today!

Who will the Master consign?

Who is willing to go and find?

 Hireling says there is not enough gold,

I fleece the sheep as I hang out inside the fold.

Wolves howl, lions roar

so many sheep ran out an open door!

As the hireling was collecting his purse!

So many lambs needing to nurse!

Listen listen as they cry out,

lost sheep running all about.

We are lost we are lost we have wandered so far away!

We are entangled in these briers, please come today!

The Master scans the earth below,

 for shepherds that willingly search to and fro.

Shepherds that eagerly climb mountains steep

Shepherds that longingly cross in deserts heat

Shepherds to search through the storm

 Shepherds to remain determined when hard pressed and forlorn

Shepherds with hearts that hear that quest not for a purse!

For so many lambs needing to nurse!

 Listen listen as they cry out,

  so many sheep running all about!

We are lost we are lost we have wander so far away!

We are entangled in these briers, glad you came today!

Amen
