The sun rises with bold and subtle colors painting the sky in beauty
Eyes are fixed, pleasure wraps about the mind, the soul
Simple things, as ocean waves wash the shorelines;
A weak, yet sincere prayer spoken in humility
Was listened to, heard by the One God above all who cares
Far beyond me, but closer today somehow,
As a search begun
Easy, plain Scriptures to daily read
At first over and over like a novel
Then more precisely as guided,
A pattern of heart prayers spoken
Always “talking to God” in honesty.
His Son truly known to be “the Key”
Certainly the “Door to Heaven” to enter,
The “Gate to the Kingdom” He shared often those years He walked the Earth;
And the entire Creation along with the earth shaken!
New life sprouted in Israel
A powerful Vine spread into the nations, all the tribes,
A seed planted taken root deeply
And now the same in me, a good seed taken root
Work done by Divine hands, joined to the One Messiah,
My prayers often- to grow and to bear much fruit in his honor.
“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world- the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and his pride in possessions does not come from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man (woman) who does the will of God lives forever.” 1John2:15-17
