I WONDER

In Angels, Creator, God, Jesus on May 26, 2015 at 11:37 am

I wonder and that is the difference

Between me and the animals!  All

They do is wonder, live, sleep, and eat

Never experienced a fall!

.

.

Eden’s garden without the presence there,

Fallen angel making plans to rule

Above even God universally!

We wondering what kind of fool!

.

.

Would be so presumptive?

Made it all happen complete.

Made all the angels, Lucifer, too,

One to soon know defeat!

.

.

Significant in this one created

What he thought presumed,

How could one created be so rash

As to sing impossible tune?

.

.

Nature of temptation may just be

Such an impossibility,

A situation way, way beyond

Any probability.

.

.

Lucifer forgot so much of everything!

Including His Creation!

Created does not contradict Creator

Unless plain ill-flation—

.

.

To do anything but the right,

Inflated to follow wrong!

In the wrong kind of most everything

Can hear it in every song!

.

.

Surely do suffer the consequence of

Determining difference

Decided the right from the not quite

Ultimate significance.

.

.

God’s Word does state very clearly

The difference between

One thought actually sums it all

Opposite of demean!

.

.

Opposite depresses to lift up!

With God’s help we can do!

Resist the Tempter with all his ways

Lifting up Jesus’ name!

.

TESTING

In God on May 22, 2015 at 9:31 am

Does God still rule the universe

With everything around?

Including what Satan turned about

Whatever He here found?

.

.

So many poisonous creatures

On land and waters, too!

The air alone seems satisfied

To be breathed as we all do!

.

.

But even there some can be found

Disruptive to feelings,

Like, itching from sun’s hot rays

With plain sweat dealing.

.

.

“Curse God and die!”  What Job’s wife yells,

Plain sick of all his cries!

Easy to reject that crazy idea

As Satan’s idea implies!

.

.

Ashes from his fire do not help much

But determination wins!

Does Job bless God and thank?  No,

But at least he does not sin!

.

.

Why then does God dress him down so?

Maybe to emphasize

His right Divine to test everyone!

Testing no surprise!

.

.

All God’s children should expect

This, what we all need!

Not to question God’s overall as

In His pastures we feed!

.

.

Reasons not often plain to us

But unquestionable!

Just thank God thoughts we can

Once out of the cradle.

.

.

Not to fear!  God teaches us

Once we have learned to walk

The straight and narrow path He trod

And talk the way He talked,

Takes a while!

.

QUALIFIED

In Grace, Heaven, Jesus, Lord, W. W. II on May 20, 2015 at 2:57 pm

One thought and you are in Tibet,

But who would want to go there?

Fly through space around the world,

Sure, twice if you find it fair!

.

.

But heaven is so much better!

My desire to fly!

Ability true always there!

But why even try?

.

.

Why even should I want to leave

With Jesus abiding there?

He who died for me on a cross,

Love there!  Beyond compare!

.

.

Lord, I knew as the years flew by

Depended on Him always!

‘Please protect’ as in wartime I cried

And ‘please help’ since day-by-day!

.

.

He helped every time as shrapnel flew

In that big one, W. W. II!

Sure, I just, like, took it all for granted

As we all often do!

.

.

Then an angry hum sounding like death,

And death it was, just four

Remained from this squad of twelve.

Again and again, no more.

.

.

No more replacements the word came through

Just to finalize

Same four that went through it all!

Began to realize–

.

.

That we still had a life ahead!

At least, I followed my call!

To tell again preachment of Grace!

That Jesus died for all!

.

.
