Grieving towards Grace

This is a prayer/poem that comes from so much of the tyranny that losses can “feel” like but often the words just won’t come. There are those who are laid open with the wound of loss…This is for you.

Learning every day how You pull me through the grieving
Of the saying goodbyes and question of why’s
I want to stand up now
And live out loud
Your how

Greaseless joints move through this moment
Uncertain from one moment to the next
Gridlocked and cornered by misconceptions
You reach through and rescue
Impossible – Your motion
I watch quite outside myself
This shell rejects the notion
That something more waits on the horizon

I hear You speak of future glimpses
Set aside and tailor made
Full of the unlikely candidates of smile-like shapes upon my lips again
Empty hands argue with those words
I’m as empty as these hands seem now
The scales all favor Your how

Incredulous and impossible
Next to nothing my thoughts are full
Of questions and constant looks into the past
Involuntary muscles break me fast
Against Your waves
High tide has reckoned with my strength – making graves
Buried and gone are dreams awakened
By the rush of You
By the constant stream
Steady and sure
You flow right through me
Threatening not to undo me
Watching these pieces flow into places
I never gave a chance to have faces
Hell seems a beautiful thing to the undone
Fractures surface on its foundations
Smoothing out the existence of Your Son
Inside of me
Your how

Every answer seems offensive
Every smile shakes my core
Happiness is for the full
Empty arms ask for more

I will await Your chosen moment
And wade through these questions of why
Abide in the presence of Your holy Anchor
Trust doesn’t need why
It only needs now
In the face of all that’s debatable
Scrutiny becomes an enemy with the face of a friend
Its constant drip of voices shout
Yet You invite them in to tune, refine and shake loose
Dreams born in the hidden whispers of doubt
These too bow to You
I don’t know why
But I know they take on clarity
In Your how

Show me now
In these stretched out seemingly eternal seconds
Ticking against the white washed borders of my mind
Show me in the reflections of shadow and doubt
Your how

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah

To be Free or not to be Free?

This is a radical diversion from both the theme of this blog and the message it seeks to highlight. Though the title is definitely in keeping with it. 🙂

Recently some changes have been made in cyber-land and as a result it seems the content of my blog has been “gifted” with free adds. Please know I have not added these adds. To remove them will cost me money. For which I am willing to pay but the system by which to try and eliminate them seems to “roll back on itself” and as yet won’t allow me the honor of sparing you. To say I am frustrated is mute. Though the aggravation is minor. So I apologize to you all for the inconvenience as I work this out; and ask for your patience, as I am not tech-savvy.

We have for many years enjoyed the free-ness of the internet and all it provides! It was the intention of its designer, but alas those who worship the currency of the world have decided “nothing in life is free”. To that I agree to an extent. Nothing in this world is free. Not even air!! You must give a breath away to receive a new one. And, lo, we only have an allotted number! So it’s seems good to me that God is faithful in keeping His word! Only the gift(s) of God is FREE!

I suppose even this could be rationalized to the point that it may “lose” some sense of freedom. For in exchange for His gift(s) we often find ourselves “giving up” something of the self we were before. Though I don’t count this as loss, and the replacements He gives far exceed any initial investment. The Kingdom of Heaven beats any market known to man in dividends!! The interest yielded is unaccountable to the finite mind! So I say,

Glory to God!! May His Wisdom continue to be proven ABSOLUTE!”

To say there is absolutely NOTHING we could need that He has not already provided exactly as needed is the essence of Yeshua’s (Jesus’) teaching in not worrying about a thing in this world! If I have a material need and He does not provide the resources to secure it; I thank Him and seek to enter into His lesson of how to do without or perhaps follow His lead in a method of acquirement I, myself, would not have thought of on my own. My life “of worries” has profoundly been replaced with thanksgiving and trust in the God of all things! Living without is almost always (at first) offensive…even absurd to my “Americanized intellect”. Yet pushing through the offense has renewed that “americanized mind” into true freedom!

To be free or not to be free?

That is the question. Who one seeks out for the answer…makes all the difference!!

John 8:31-32 ~ Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…

So Yeshua said to the Judeans who had trusted Him, “If you obey what I say, then you are really my talmidim (disciples/followers), you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

John 8:36 ~ Yeshua speaking…

So if the Son frees you, you will really be free!

Galatians 5:1

What the Messiah has freed us for is freedom! Therefore, stand firm, and don’t let yourselves be tied up again to a yoke of slavery.

We could all gripe and complain about the new limit to that which had none in internet accessibility without charge. Or the ability to use it without charging others for the privilege. Yet, I am glad to report that all things are happening in order to make the truth of God’s word stand out for those with eyes to see it! For this, I am happy and joyful! The “times” we live in now, seem to be shouting like thunder the revelation of the Wisdom we are led to by the Spirit; by which we enter through the Son, our Messiah; by which we are seated at the feet of the Father, and kept in perfect peace! Freedom!!
