Poems

Start your day with Jesus

Be honest with God about your heart

Greatest love

Greatest love Hath no man than this Greatest love Hath no man than Thou Fairer than the sons of men Thine voice like oil, like honey O Love, better than life O Love, better than wine Greatest love O how great Thou art!

Fear on hell’s wheels

He told my fear to run, and like hell on wheels, that fear run back to its sender, the keeper of hell- Belial.

You might notice I call it my fear; well, it had held me prisoner for as long as I had lived, so yes, it had become a part of me.

Until one day, He spoke to me and told me to grow up and stop being a little child without knowledge of her origin.

He told me, ‘When I molded you, I placed many treasures within you, but fear was not one of them. It did not come from me, and because of that, it is an anomaly. I have given you courage, soundness of mind, and vision like mine.’

He told me ‘Remember whose you are. Remember who you came from. Look at me, and see who you are.’

And just like that, I felt a stirring within my soul, a yearning for freedom. I felt the raging clouds within me take a hike. Like the turning from one page to another, I felt the whisper of freedom and He guided my soul’s hands to grasp it.

Now here I am, fear free, and in the still waters, I have found a home.

UNDONE

‘Yes, I am unraveling: but to what end?’ Why I ask the lover of my soul this question as I drift off to sleep is a story for another day.Truth is, I don’t have an answer yet, for He’s not finished with me yet.To become a child again once new life has been given you is filled with falls as you learn to walk, talk, and recognize Kingdom relationships through Anna Father’s eyes.So I have been unraveling for awhile now and can’t wait for the outcome.I know, in His hands, I will come forth as gold, for He knows all that concerns me.Job 23:10-11

Put a praise on “it”

Lather it sumptuously with honey,

slice into little pieces,

and add even more honey

light a furnace under it

Become it

Become God’s praise on the earth.

Be as He is

Dwell on His mind in you

Gaze on that glorious wonderful beautiful face

And endless springs of praise will overflow

You will find your heart has become heaven itself

I believe, I believe what you say of me

What- who have I but you?You have every heartbeat, every blink of my eyesevery motion, every impulseWhere would I go but to you?my homecoming, my homerunI don’t have words enough to describe Love like You, love like Yours

My cup overflows


Psalm 23:5-6 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.…

I looked about me

at the walls enclosing.

My eyes scaled their height and width,

for the overgrowth held my feet trapped

And I wondered about my saving.

I wondered “Does anybody hear me?”

“Does anybody see?”

And there You where

You said

“I have loved you with an everlasting love and wherever you are, I am too”

Here I now stand safe and secure for Your grace holds me now.

The One Eternal Bride Groom

My reflection is changing. The deeper I gaze into the perfection of your face, the more I reflect on the fiery flame of your eyes, the more I am transformed into you.

2 Corinthians 3:18

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

From your face, I can’t turn away. Your presence robes me, and ensconced in your arms, I never want to leave.

Your holiness draws me in. There’s a warmth, a radiance, a purity- an absoluteness to your love.

Unreserved, without question, selfless, totally sold on me. You gather me to you.

You encircle me. Wherever I am, your eyes trail my every motion. In a crowd of billions, you see me; every detail. Nothing escapes you. Nothing happens to me whose outcome is not good.

Because you have chosen to dwell in me, wherever I go, I am safe.
