A poem prayer for people today–people you and people me. People us. People not us. People all. Singing together to the Maker of people. People: Designed to dance. Made to praise. People = lost outside the original design. People us cannot be found until we’re lost. We find our life when we lose ourselves in the Conductor of creation.
“have you felt the tug
the longing to be who you truly are
you try try try try try try try try
yet in all your try-ing
you end up on the floor
“the Bible says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God
the Bible says the wages of sin is death
(don’t take my word, get into the Word yourself).”
“if sin leads to death, is there any way out?
is there a lifeline? hope? HeLp??!!?
(I need help…)”
“there is a Way:
He loves you so He died your death so you could
“CRIKEY COOKIES. come again?!?!!!
so, you’re saying, I TOTALLY offended the King of the UNIVERSE who knows everything I
and He is JUST so He’s gotta judge which means I’m totally DEAD,
and there was NOTHING I could do about it???”
“BUT! (biggest but ever) God loves me! so He took my place! right?”
“correct. believe in Jesus. we’re saved by grace through faith. salvation is a free gift. what do you do with a gift?”
“regift to my great aunt, Flowita!! love her! she’s a professional fruitcake baker”
“??? well, usually you just open it, and enjoy it.”
“Oh, WoW! thank you Jesus!
AHHhhhhHhhhhHhH!!!!!!!!” *breakdancing and olympic singing into the sunset*

heart palpitations patter pitter as earth shatters into 8,000,001 pot shards
tectonic plates broken
Son of Man broken on a tree for us
today tomorrow forever
better than yesterday with You.
ending disguised by distraction
slumbering society: WAKE!
factions say this
denomination say that
tick tock time’s out
will you agree now?
Jesus is Lord
His love can bring you on board,
en route to eternity with a King whose majesty
outshines all light & bright
too beautiful to say
too awesome to contain
Creator, Sustainer, I can know You–for real?? For real. For REAL!!!
each breath I enter
each exhale surrender
in Your gaze.
Prayer: the ladder from Your heart to mine, an every second climb, an every moment waterfall.
Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil. Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes with much business, and a fool’s voice with many words.
Ecclesiastes 5:1-3 ESV
“I created you to worship Me in a way only you can”
Lately I’ve been wasting life by living for myself. No longer! I declare war on my flesh! I confess I’m victorious in Christ! I was created by God, for God. I’ve been bought with the costliest price: the blood of Christ. I refuse selfishness; I die to myself!
Hear my battle cry: aYiiiiiiIIIIIIAHMUACKUUUOreeee! Roar! Muhaawau! WoooiiiiiiiiimuaYeS!!
Jesus I’m yours because you are mine. I want all of you like you gave all of you for all of me. I’m ready to be made one with you. You say those that love you keep your commandments. I ask you to help me establish a pattern of obedience in my life. Thank you I fight from a position of victory, won through your finished work on the cross. I love you Lord. Increase my love because you first loved me!
Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NLT
You’re in the chemical composition of lava and
Petal curvature and moon ovature.
The grooves of disco and tree bark.
Space dust and ant biceps.
You’re in apple bottoms looking like spiders and
You dance in wind,
laugh in river rapids,
paint in coral.
You’re the mystery,
the God of my heart thump.
