Vignettes 2

Man seeks with his reason
A path finite and slow.
But soon He shall find season
When it is God, love to show.

Man’s self-derived self-reason
Spiritual death.

And the Word was God
Kai Logos ēn pros theos,
So, God walked with Man [1]

That which we have seen
Imprint on thought forever
First-hand witnesses [2]

Man’s finite wisdom,
Tra-gic-al-ly misses point
Heart forever mourns

For wishing shadows
Hearts barren without warm light
God’s beckoning Love

Love forever more.
Our reason surely slows.
For man’s thinking so poor,
To us, our Lord surely shows.

His love is enough for each unique,
In dark corners shall ignite.
Our sorrowful hearts shall ever seek,
His overwhelming Light.

So, hope is eternal
Man’s path to God’s eyes.
What once thought reasonable,
Now deceitful lies.

In joyful heart e’er indwelt,
The Spirit and the true Vine.
In God now always felt,
All eternity is mine.

…and yours

We are Ready

The time is now to seek with willing heart.

His breath of Mercy and Love.

We live fully a life apart,

He leads us from above.

We are obedient, eager, and passionate,

Seeing His mystery revealed each day.

Stepping with an imparted, discerned gait.

Speaking in a spiritually fervent way.

Let the unsure be bold.

All who seek will find.

Trusting we are in His fold.

Our petitions come forth to bind.

We take a moment to listen, another, to do.

We know this cycle sure.

Asking, listening, responding, thanking – true

Our prayers through Living Water pure.

Father we ask through He Who Mediates for us in our place,

We are sanctified through the blood of the Son.

We are reconciled through Your grace,

To Your welcoming arms we run.

The Time is Now to embrace our blessed lives rife with spiritual beauty.

We are here for You , Lord. We are ready.
