YOUR NAME IN THE BOOK
The God of details
Infinite grasp of His Heavens
And His Earth,
All the grains of sand held in one hand
All the stars of all the galaxies in the other.
Each cloud ever formed above, shaped artistically
Blended with every dramatic sunset
As a glowing canvas of gladness displayed,
Spread across the sky each morning the same
In the trumpeted beauty of a new day given the wonder of birth.
How much greater a child emerging from his or her mother’s womb,
A river of joy overflows its banks
Floods into a life with such a gift of wonder;
“The streams of God very full.”
Abundance the supreme signature written across the sky
Radiant light but a hint of the brilliance soon to be revealed
As Israel’s Eternal King
Strides gloriously down the Mount of Olives
Into His Jerusalem Temple.
That day will come
When Heaven’s books are opened wide
And the Judge of all will forever make known
With every detail recorded
Each word, each thought, each action good or evil
Weighed in the delicate balance of Holy Spirit love, grace and truth;
And, finally, THE BOOK OF LIFE
Sacred and true in faithfulness
Just and loving in obedience
Honest and pure in worship,
Those written, those named who stood strong till the end.
The faithful redeemed of the Lord
Chosen ones who chose Yeshua Messiah above life and breath
And everything else.
