Poem: For the Birds

To some people, birds are
nothing more than eye candy;
to others, a vital part of
Earth’s ecosystem; how far
 
should one go to study them
in detail? Between exotic
mating rituals and building
skills, what unseen gems
 
can we observe? The Father
feeds and cares for all fowl,
even though they don’t sow,
reap or gather; why bother
 
trying to interpret His plan,
when His methodologies rise
up, beyond our ability to see?
Does He reveal Himself to Man
 
with genius, creativity and by
the majesty of the Heavens?
Of course, He does! Why else
do we raise our hands, sigh…
 
and purpose to praise Him?

Poem: Clinging to The Cross

I’m dearly clinging to The Cross
of Christ, as though this Life
depends on it; with these empty
hands there’s no gain, but loss
 
since Salvation can’t be earned.
The vanity of accomplishments
and earthly achievements mean
nothing, seeing that it’s burned
 
up within the crucible of works.
My Hope remains in Christ alone
and the commitment of His Word;
I’m not motivated by a knee jerk
 
reaction to lies from His enemy.
Therefore, I’ll remain vigilant,
confident and sober, knowing that
on Christ, I will always rely!

Poem: Heart and Soul, Warmed

My heart and soul, warmed
by Yahweh’s Love, finds its
motivation to quietly move
in a manner that’s pleasing
to Him; since we’re formed
 
after His image, He knows
us best and intimately; we
in return, love Him because
He first loved us; His Word
reveals Himself… to those
 
who actively seek Him; we
know that He’s not a Man,
that would lie- so we can
learn to believe, to trust,
to praise and begin to see
 
Him with true, spiritual eyes,
so our spirits soar and rise!

Poem: Not In Haste

Waiting on Yahweh is
an effective binding
of our soul to His;
will this Life’s quiz
 
be clarified within…
our identity in Christ?
We’re human beings, not
human doings; begin
 
to live without worry.
Haste makes waste; can
we expect real change,
if always in a hurry?

Poem: Morning’s Dawn and Dew

With morning’s dawn and dew,
the blades of wet grass beckon
unto me, to cleanse… soiled
soles; as I stride across the
silence of greenery, wondrous
sparkling of unknown diamonds
mesmerize my gaze; the wealth
of my existence is enhanced,
as I envision Christ, before
His disciples, bent over their
feet… ready to humbly serve.

John 13:1-17 and
 
David’s poem “SECOND CHANCE”
 
SECOND CHANCE
When God came calling face to face
In a fatal circumstance,
Breast to breast in His embrace,
He promised me a second chance
To let me ring the morning in
And dine on dawn and dew,
My running feet to press and bless
The grass I'm passing through,
The potent wine of joy to flood
Like a bubbling spring,
Warm hosannahs in my blood
That make me want to sing.

Poem: Unseemly Faith

The ugliness of unseemly Faith
serves as an undesired deterrent
and stumbling block to the lost;
as our moral strength is spent,
 
we’re more apt to be watched!
The enemy will pounce as a lion,
wanting to kill and to destroy
our Hope; there’s no use trying
 
when the challenges to humanity
range from Life to Death. We must
rise up and strive to do good;
real Faith requires us to trust…
 
in the Holy One, Who sent us.
Therefore, let us live boldly!
Let’s run into the daily battle
and enjoy that we’re made holy!

Poem: Carrying Our Sins

It is not our responsibility,
to be carrying our sins daily;
Christ took them upon Himself
for our benefit, whereby we can
move beyond… our fallen nature.
Success isn’t based on ability,
 
but on our reliance upon Yahweh!
Repent from wickedness; cry unto
Him, Who saves; study and apply
His Word with diligence; ask for
divine wisdom; trust Him and gain
unimagined peace; His loving sway
 
reinforces the subtle and genuine
reality of a relationship with Him.
We have been instructed to choose
Life; a final death sentence awaits
us, if we ignorantly or unwittingly
insist on… carrying our sins.

Poem: Another World

We are being prepared
for another world- one
that we can’t imagine;
the future will scare
 
some people with fears
unknown; being forced
to trust an unseen God,
to get over the tears
 
of a lifetime of pain…
seems to exceed human
comprehension. Life can
change us; we will gain
 
experiences that stretch
us beyond our comfort. He
wants our companionship,
to partner with wretched
 
souls for His utmost glory.
Now there’s another world,
waiting on our appointed
arrival… to join His story
 
and bask in His Presence.
We’ll observe wonders that
will amaze us, including…
the pure, eternal essence
 
of Who, Yahweh is!
 
 
 
Author notes
 
Inspired by:
1 Cor 1:9; Rom 7:24  and
 
If we find ourselves with a desire that
nothing in this world can satisfy, the
most probable explanation is that we were
made for another world. ―C.S. Lewis

Poem: Tethered Lambs

When it comes to our Christianity,
we’re to be like tethered lambs;
ready to die for our Faith, while
displaying grace, love and humility!
 
Though we’re surrounded by wolves,
our Great Shepherd can keep us safe
in green meadows, under His watchful
eye; it’s usually from ourselves…
 
that we require the most protection.
Nothing can separate us from Yahweh
and His right hand; therefore, let’s
offer genuine praise for Salvation
 
and the promises expressed within
His Word, including… Life over sin.

Poem: Failures of Self-Righteousness

The primary failure of…
self-righteousness is that
you become your own god;
besides fouling true Faith,
you’ll never walk in Love,
 
since you’ll be the center
of a personal firestorm;
you’ll choose to manipulate
others for satisfaction or
gain; as a human tormentor,
 
you’ll never possess a peace
that’s real or everlasting.
All attributes of character
and humility will dissipate;
unable to discover a release
 
from Life’s miseries, you’ll
become so isolated, that the
numbness of your spirit will
unwittingly beckon Death’s
realm to be…  the solitary fuel
 
of your own destruction.
 
 
 
Author notes
 
Inspired by:
Isa 64:6; 2 Tim 4:3-4; Rom 1:28-32  and
 
Trying to establish a righteousness
of your own, will pollute your walk
with God. -Rabbi K.A. Schneider
