Rewriting Our Lives…Is that our job or God’s?

rewriting

 

Everyday people like you and me;
Make mistakes, known to ourselves, or even for the worlds around us to see.
Wishing that we could peacefully, wipe our slates clean…
From mistakes in our adulthood, even back to our teens.

Many choose to rewrite their histories and lives;
So that they can reconcile with the world outside, though their souls being stabbed like knives.
When you tell a lie so many times;
You begin to believe it as truth, the biggest crime.

Though for the moment, life seems to go on;
And all in life seems great, with a new dawn…
We often forget, truth will always surface and prevail;
Whether on this earth or before the Creator, we each will have to give account for what the lies entail.

Rewriting our pasts is really not a choice;
Especially when pasts have caused others pain, where they no longer had a voice…
Based on what one has rewritten and contrived;
Truth can become so lost, and the lie will thrive.
Without making an amends of some sort;
We allow for such pain to twist and contort.

We must remember that there is a Higher Authority that is always keeping score;
Of what we allow to take root within our core…
No matter how many times we try to bury our past…
It will always resurface, its secrecy will never last.

So, we must lay all truth, good or bad, before the Creator;
And lay the future of our hearts and souls, to The Elevator.
For He knows that we are flawed and make mistakes;
But by not admitting to them, the risk of losing eternity, we will raise the stakes.

Psalm 139

Psalm 139

 

You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.

Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.

You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,

even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”

even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand—when I awake, I am still with you.

If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!

They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name.

Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord,     and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?

I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Flawed in the Flesh…Promised in Soul and Heart to Purity

Strength

Father God, sometimes I don’t know why;

Why I see things differently from others…to fit in…I try.

But after all these years, I now see;

God you have given me this vision to live, share and be.

May those that do not understand…be given to see;

Your presence in all that You have given…and finally experience eternal happiness and glee.

For those that choose to mock in what they despise in You…or do not understand;

Be given another chance to experience and see the love that You showed them at the Cross…where for them Jesus took the Stand.

 

I remember as a small child, I would often play alone…

Singing to you…as my friend…though you are the Supreme Being“The One”.

Now as an adult, I still talk to you as my friend…

With all my fears, flaws, happiness, curiosities…as if there is no end.

 

What humbles me everyday…

Is the blessings that God for me, you daily say…and lay.

Each time I look at the Cross, where Jesus once hung;

I fall down to my knees, cry out with my soul….and with that same heart, as a child I had sung…

 

My human mind can not comprehend such love;

That’s come endlessly from Up Above.

My Spirit tells me all day long;

That this was God’s Love Letter…to me….His Love Song.

 

 My human nature is so flawed;

To which tries to of my soul to separate from my Father….to the point of it being gnawed.

Evil will try to own me through them;

And makes its plans to spread and stem…

 

But as that child that sang to You;

I have promised to “stick to you, as glue…”

And ever since that was made;

My soul and heart, in Your Nail Punctured Hands, I have laid.

For no matter how much my flesh is thrashed and ripped;

Abba, my heart and soul will come to You, bruised…tattered…and clipped.

All I ask is for You to give me the strength to endure it all;

All trials and challenges, like the Prophet Job….great and small.

 

 

“What God Hath Promised” – Annie Flint

GodPromises

God hath not promised

Skies always blue,

All our lives through;

God hath not promised

Sun without rain,

Joy without sorrow,

Peace without pain.

But God hath promised

Strength for the day,

Rest for the labor,

Light for the way,

Grace for the trials,

Help from above,

Unfailing sympathy,

Undying love.

A Child’s Heart Is What God Requires

Matthew 18,3

As I look outside my window and stare;

I see the so many people walking around, in the world, without any care.

God‘s Love is slowly disappearing from the world, throughout this place…

All to fulfill Satan‘s Revenge against God, making many of God’s Children fall from His Grace.

 

Eventhough Jesus Christ came onto this earth to live, in order to die for us;

We forget from what punishment we were spared, and continue, against God, to cuss.

God asked us to trust Him, just as a child trusts his/her own mother and father;

To have faith like a child…many do not bother.

 

I see the world constantly changing…so far away from God and the greatness He created for us to be;

Evil is making sure that the majority of us, will forget, look down, of God’s Ways of Love to flee.

Jesus Christ showed us through His Own Death, that God wanted us to be freed;

To unshackle us of Evil’s Ways…and know of God’s Unconditional Love…to be our creed.

 

A Child’s Heart is what God’s expects…

A heart that is that has not yet been stained by evil…and bruised by its effects.

It is a heart like this that sees the Face of God…and know of His Unconditional Love;

To know of Abba‘s Endless Forgiveness, that He so willingly shares from Up Above.

 

Though having travelled off so far from God’s Path;

Take some time, and do the math…

Evil is always ready to take you away from knowing such elation;

An elation that can only be known by knowing a Father that is beyond the world’s ways…not by any blood relation.

 

A Child’s Heart is what we should strive for;

So that God can enter within us, and prepare us for what Evil has for us, in store!

Jesus is coming very soon;

So allow for yourself, in God’s Divine Laws of Love, to be in tune.

Certainty of Truth

GodTruthTriumphs

 

On this Earth we roam around;

For a truth that will make us Heaven bound.

As we continuously recognize our flaws and strengths;

We must perfect both of them, correct them by willing to go all lengths.

 

 

For in the words of our Blesses Savior, Jesus Christ

“Truth is not what one see or hears…but what is felt.”

By being a part of God‘s created world;

We are to continuously seek His Wisdom…His Truth…and with evil‘s ways, from our lives, should be hurled.

 

 

Once one gets a taste of this Truth, the hunger to taste it again goes on and on…

Evil from it, will try to manipulate, deceive, and con…

Despite evil’s temporary success of creating deviations…one will discover that the hunger for the certainty of God’s Truth, is NEVER gone…

And as one learns more and more, he/she will become less of the Enemy’s pon.

 

 

This will anger Satan, and he will throw anything to deter one from Truth’s Path;

For temporary indulgences and scorges…versus the price for eternity in Paradise…you do the math.

He will try to convince you that God will never forgive you of your debts or sins…

But the truth states that with wholehearted faith, God will forgive you, unconditionally…not like how evil will remind you of them…like pins.

 

 

Evil will continuously tempt you away from seeking and sharing the Truth you found;

By lying, instilling fear, and even overly flattering you…trying to lure you away from Hallowed Ground.

For evil today will try to disguise itself with the shell of being empathetic and pure…

That is why Christ states that Truth is FELT, not to be deceived by earthly sayings and actions that hear and look good.

 

 

There is a certainty that comes along with Truth, that is felt;

Because it is felt from the innermost depths of your being, it can not be denied…within your heart…it takes deep root and melts.

The hardest thing is giving to the Will of Truth, because it defies all logic of Man;

However, it is so powerful that it would rid all evil from existence, hence Satan’s plot of it to ban.

 

BEWARE!

Clouds Hanging Over Our Earth

Storm clouds

 

As each day goes by;

We see the Earth, in its own way, and cry.

The climate takes roller coaster rides;

While natural disasters no longer makes any attempts to hide.

 

Children who were meant to dream, frolic, and play;

Are fighting for safety within their homes and food on their tables, today.

People who try to do good everyday;

Get discouraged by the evil that surrounds them, on them to prey.

 

Animals who were made to only fear each other for survival, within their Kingdom’s dome;

Now have to fight for their lives, as well as their young, for now humans invade their home.

In war stricken lands;

Based on political lies, people are forced to stands…

For false truths, in order to protect their homelands.

 

While a cloud hangs over the Earth;

Evil has allowed for so much destruction to have given birth;

To greed, hate, anger and fear…

Making everyone weary of others who deceive and jeer.

 

Those who know better of what is “right or wrong”;

Should stand tall and strong.

Helping for truth and integrity to prevail and to be remained…

No to be suffocated by those with personal agendas, or of evil their hearts are stained.

 

For seeking and upholding “TRUTH” is key;

To bring about LOVE and UNITY.

Knowing God requires one to yearn learning about such things;

By uniting and equally caring for all of His Creations, oh what joy it brings.
