THINK YOU ARE SMART?

In God on October 1, 2014 at 7:39 pm

So much is said about positive thinking,

The power of intention, too.

There is no power but God above

Not just intends but can do!

 

 

Now man may intend to build a storm

With thunder, lightning, and rain!

Well, think again, will not happen at all

You are just messing up your brain!

 

 

A certain King with a funny name

He thought he would command the tides.

Stood on the shore but his feet got wet.

What a pitiful ride!

 

 

Man gets a little power sometimes

Then puts his thoughts in rhymed verse,

But no matter how hard you try, you cannot.

No, you cannot run the universe!

 

 

Put a man in space! Well, how wonderful!

But who put that space out there?

Or that sun so much larger than ours,

You have a brain, compare.

 

 

Just maybe you can fill in the blanks

Like, that silly King and that sun.

Give up? Antares and King Kanute,

How can you be so dumb?

 

 

(Or is it King Canute? Dummy)

HOW FAR IS HEAVEN?

In Christian, God, Heaven on September 29, 2014 at 8:20 pm

”The heavens declare…” Do we really need that?

Just look at yourself, whether skinny or fat,

You are a masterpiece! Cannot begin to portray

Your functions, physique, how to convey…

 

 

Well, your heart for one, is it pumping? And why?

It is pumping and if it quits, you will die!

Are you working the handle or switch? Well, no!

Then what keeps it beating? Does my ignorance show?

 

 

Explain! Well, of course, only God can do that!

But I know one thing, if it stops I fall flat!

If it stops this I know, I function no more!

Than what? I will anticipate Heavens fair shore!

 

 

We do not worry about that! I look forward, do not you?

There are many who do not, it is sad but it is true!

I anticipate changing, maybe drastic, but wait

Just one moment, and then arrive at Heaven’s Gate!

 

 

Do not know about you but the wait does seem long,

But it will not be too painful, I will still have a song!

In Heaven I will contemplate earth’s time was so short

Though I never attempted or thought to abort!

 

 

The song drowns out every thought of before

The worry, the fret of that brief earthly shore!

Forgotten at last! The glad song finds its way

To lift me to God’s blissful Eternal Day!

 

 

Hallelujah!

SHALL I CRUCIFY AGAIN?

In God, Grace, Heaven on September 29, 2014 at 8:13 pm

God turned His back so as not to hear

The cries of His only Son.

He heard the cries, but could not contain

His pain until all was done.

 

 

The cries, the deep moans, what does it mean?

Just how can the pain be stilled?

Does He suffer still in heaven now?

His cup of sorrow yet filled?

 

 

How can He forget? He loved! He died!

He gave His life! Men refused!

Though He die again, it would be the same,

His Grace twice again abused!

 

 

Cannot you tell? He loved you so much,

He suffered consummate pain!

We signify an empty, empty response

So must He die again?
