Spirit

I long to walk into the sunset,
keeping it ever before my eyes
But it leaves me chasing the twilight
Thus the sun will always treat me, until it ceases to shine

I look dreaming to the stars, untouched by my awestruck face
They will burn till the end of the heavens, unaware of the nights they held my gaze

I burn to be part of the music, that forever stirs my soul
To take flight with any instrument, to lands I’ve never known
But the music was beautiful without my song
And though I never played a note, the melodies will still play on long after the final  note 

These things are beyond holding onto
A substance beyond embrace
So onto God I reserve my worship
whom without it, would still remain unchanged
But with this shining exception
He sees and knows my spirit,
As He touches my upturned face

Embrace the wind

image

Like a flag on a hill
A banner in the sky
As the clouds rush away
But the grey backdrop stays
So the cheer goes up
And the song still remains
Onward and upward
Ever higher we climb
The roar of the ocean
In a rising tide
Exalting the moments
We sing for all time
Chasing the furies
That leave us behind
So caught in the love
For which we all strive
Everyone feels it
And everyone tries
longing to hold on
To this parcel of life
We reach out to Heaven
With the beauty within
And all we’ve been given
To embrace the wind

Let’s Pause For A Moment.

There has been quite a stir recently in ‘Christian’circles over what some individuals say, or more importantly, what others think they believe.
This shouldn’t even happen.
The world is watching.
And ‘Christians’ need to be praying about the real issues. Like the Slaughter of real Christians in the middle east.
Hundreds, maybe thousands are dying for their faith.

But I digress.
I thought I might reblog this, because, well, its true.
When you take love out of the equation, the ‘church’ is not a pretty sight. Kinda petty, actually….

Driven By Dreams

I read all about Gungor when we decided to stone him internet style. Read both sides. We’re all freakin out again cause of an Olsteen remark on worship.

Forgive me, but…I’m not about to pick up my stone and join in.

The moment we start deciding we get to judge another human being because their Christianity doesn’t look just like ours, we enter dangerous territory, that can lead to some dark crap.

Love is our greatest gift, part of our beautiful inheritance. It’s a huge part of who we are in Christ. It’s our core. When we start with-holding that love from anyone, when we stop giving grace, we stop showing Jesus to the world.

We are not all knowing. We are not at all given the gift of life to jump down the throats of the Gungors or the Olsteens of the world.

Disagreement is not entitlement; a license…
