We come to love God by spending time in His presence. It is exposure to Him that deepens our love. Education in theology will not do it. Ritual will not do it. God will do it Himself within us as we seek His face and His Holy Spirit within our hearts communes in prayer with God the Father and Jesus, our Lord.

When this chain of communion begins to operate and the Spirit within us is fellowshipping with God the Father, through Jesus, our great High Priest,the transforming power of God moves in and through the human vessel doing a purifying work beyond our comprehension. Old things begin to pass away, and all things become new. Shadows are dispelled and darkness is dispersed by the light. Stubborn bones are broken, and the will begins to yield to conform to the image of Christ. Things that used to master are no longer important, doing the will of God becomes a consuming passion. Chaff is blown away by the wind of the Spirit. His voice becomes as beautiful music to our ears, and any contrary voice is an immediate strident discord. This is how His sheep hear and recognize His voice and will not follow the voice of a stranger.

* The following is a prayer written by Ted Loder. *

Praise be to You, Gracious God, for this day, this earth, this life, for the Weave of Miracles blessing us and for Your quiet power sustaining us.

We praise You for times of laughter and tears, risk and reconciliation, reflection and healing, and for the consistent presence of Your Spirit making all things sacred.

Praise to You, awesome God, for the Holy mysteries of our struggling and wondering, for our trials and triumphs, and all that moves us to awe, to love, to pray, to serve, since it is Your Spirit that moves us so and is creating us still; through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Voice of God

January 18, 2015 at 12:33 am (Poems) (, , , , , , , , , )

image

Purest sound – sweetest silent crescendo
How supreme You are to me
The splendor of my soul
Love in broken melodies and tones
Shaking my frame – aligning my bones
Break forth a mighty wind
Over, around and all the way in
Breath of Life vibrate my sin
Blow deep into my hollow aching need
Let me cease to pulsate
Allowing You to breathe

Voice of God
Ultimate Beginning
Promise-filled End
Never cease to resonate
Mysteries flow
My mind can never know
But You – alive within
Yes, You know all
So, now I contain You?
How?
This must be the universal question – yes?
But, “How?” Is a human question
Innocent as the dawn
Yes – childlike – open – free
But! Your “Why” is the finish
Because You can!
You delight!
Filling – Breathing – Shining Light
Into the smallest weakest vessel
Bright! Holding weakness inside Your might
Why? How?
There’s only the Now
Now, contains the Who
You – You – I Am!
Present, Now, Forever
Breathe, Speak!

image

Voice of God
My foundation – Staff and Rod
Break in and through
Life-infused gale
Break upon my shores
Loosen the concrete barriers of my mind
Holding captive the song of “Set Free”!
Begin again and afresh!
Oh Beginning Refrain
Speak! And I will be spoken
Rippling Your Image upon the liquid glass of Your soul
See Your Son whole and complete
Despising my shame
Dispensing the sounds of Grace
Clear, pure white hot Sacrifice
Exchanging the souls likeness
Flesh for Spirit
Stars sing and dance this refrain
The Moon reflects this wax and wane
The Kingdom’s Trade
With that which only Your hands have made!

image

Voice of God
A tree offering shade
To the desert traveler – weary
Each step, dehydrated and bleary
Holds Your oasis of Wisdom
Making liquid action of Love
All blistering and bruising made a song
Voice of God – Sing!
Breathe such sweet suffering over me
Let the waters rush to create canyons
Where Your wind has swept them free
Carving waves of Your joy – undiminishible
Wings grow out of stone
To carry me – alighted on Your finger
Like a bird – perched and anchored to Your draw
Up, up, up – beyond the crumbling embers
Of distractions pointing forward and backward
Restlessly desperate to leave the Now
Speak! A Holy Halt!
Time does not exist to You
Instill my boundaries with Your Present!
Fortress my heart in Your hands
Claim me Father!
For I am Yours or I am nothing
Converse with my heart in tones of Forgiveness
Commune my soul in Mercy!
Making all of me Your witness
Your Kingdom come in me
Write Your instruction
Deep and penetrateing
Separating bone from marrow
Yes! Your Wisdom!
But More!
Your power to live it!
These are the drums and bass of Your rhythms
Obedience is a song
A sanctuary – a hiding place
Life pulsates there!
Hold me captive to these shores
Anchor me deep in the abyss of it
Mystery and unknowing
You fully know!
There I will grow
More like Your child instead

image

Voice of God
In the earth and sky
Rock and stone
Air and wind
In my ears and eyes
Heart and mind
Soul and spirit
Show me You and I will cease my striving
Give me all the Sound of You and the sense of Your arriving!
Voice of God
Live in me!

Question of Hope

July 18, 2014 at 3:15 am (Mile Stones, Psalms, Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , )

image

El’Elyon how do I give hope in a hopeless world?

I ask as I sit along the shores of my heart waiting for Him to come and close the day as the sun sets out and flys towards a new day.

It’s quiet. .. Most the world around me is asleep. The air taking it’s seemingly first full breath in hours. The big city. .. remembers peace. .. the ground alive with activity with the small things that can’t survive hurried feet during the day.

Ahhhh. ..My Beloved. .. His hand on my shoulder comes to “put to bed” the question that encompasses all the burdens of day.

“My Child, hope it’s not some thing you show. .. Be hope. Live hope.”

He sits down and takes in the view from my mind. The Word. .. patient. .. Letting me fully digest His words. .. waiting. .. Being. .. loving. Communion.

I ask without words for His exposition to go way down and make me patient for the fullness of His truth to conceive. The stars over head begin to twinkle like rousted to dance in His eyes. They become mine (His eyes) and the stars. Hope.

Learn from them. He whispers across my soul.

I begin to see. The stars just are. Exactly as He made them fully reflecting their Maker everyday. .. at all times. .. even when the Sun seems to be hiding them from view.

Live in Me. Live hope. Again His whispers are a beckoning into a deeper truth. .. Yet so simple. Ahhhh yes, I see.

We so often think of hope as something we give. Framed in words that “sound” hopeful. Collected somehow into deeds that we think is hope. But. .. to be fully alive in Him in everything we do. .. this is the true giving of hope. It gives and gives; to us as we live moment to moment and all those we cross paths with every day. Those we don’t notice and those who captivate our thoughts and prayers that are close. Live hope.

Those words echo and bring completeness to the question and the day. I am contented now. .. to just sit with Him and let the sleepiness close in and let Him lead me through my unconscious world. .. the dream filled place surrounded by His singing over me.

What glory He is. .. what Hope!
I am a star. .. twinkling His nearness. Hope.

Psalms 119:89-91
Your Word continues forever, Adonai, firmly fixed in heaven;
Your faithfulness through all generations;
You established the earth, and it stands.
Yes, it stands today, in keeping with Your rulings; for all things are Your servants.

O God
You are my God
And sincerely I seek You
With the Sun shining down on me
I am surrounded by the reminder of Your love
It is inescapable
Everything as far as my eyes can see
Is receiving Your love
Everything owes You praise
I praise Your great name!
Your character I will shout in joy
Your ways I applaud in wonder
Your power I tell all is consuming
Mighty are Your works
Even mightier still Your Words
Strength is born on the wings of Your communion
Father, Son, and Spirit You are one!
Intimately You attend all Your creation
Your Truth wraps it’s arms around all things
Your Grace protects the pulse force of Your hand
Your Mercy is treaded and woven throughout all times and seasons
Your Righteousness has won the “upper hand”
The beauty of Your labor produces offspring
The Wonder of Your deeds are spread all around
To a world that does not acknowledge You
I will shout a Mighty song of Your great love
Time will not diminish You
Nor can our blindness dim Your eyes
You watch diligently over everything
I praise and extol You God and King!
I thank You in weakened flesh
I thank You in the heart You renew
I praise the whole and complete presence of You
Your peace pervades and shines through
You are the intimate Friend of my being
Your presence is what the fight reveals
You are here
And I behold Your beauty
Your glory fills this place
Because of You my eyes are trained to see Your works
Because of Your grace my ears hear for the first time
Because You are faithful my soul knows it’s Maker
I can do nothing but praise because of You
I am nothing emptied of You
Fill me O God with Your wonder ever more
And I will tell of You!
