My Lord Un-Veiled (A to Z Challenge, Letter V)

King of my heart, forever

Valentine…the Lord is Man

Of Valor, mighty Hero; He’s

My Vindicator, just and true

Compassionate and merciful…

In Him, is freedom; my Victory

Assured…He fights fearsome

Battles, smaller ones daily.

Because I believed, received

Him only, God lifted His Veil

Allows me glimpse, Heaven’s View.

To cleave to, worship another

Is Vanity: life without blessings…

Protection, provision; lost

Salvation…eternally separate from

Father’s love, Lord’s communion.

Bible Verses:

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will grant the right to eat from the tree of life in the Paradise of God.” Rev 2:7, Berean Study Bible

“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give some of the manna that has been hidden away in heaven. And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it.” Rev 2:17, New Living Translation

“All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God—the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name.” Rev 3:12, New Living Translation

“All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine.” Rev 3:5, NLT

“He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation.” Psalm 24:5, Berean Study Bible

“But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Unique (A to Z Challenge-Letter U)

I could have used one of the previous HEART shapes, but most folks celebrate the uniqueness of SNOWFLAKES…We are each UNIQUE, VALUED creations of God

Brilliant, beautiful as snowflakes

We’re UNIQUE creations of God.

No cookie cutter children for Him

He formed, fashioned each of us

As originals with Designer label…

He sewed every finest detail.

Such time, attention went into

Preparing physical features, and

Mechanics of our brains…how

We process thoughts, information

Emotions of the heart; the secret

Space where spirit’s placed…with

Style, distinct, language He’ll use

To communicate.

He fine-tuned sense of humor; crazy

Little quirks; color of skin, eyes and

Hair; what turns us on, makes us tick

What does/doesn’t work.  The things

Which drive us, scare our pants off…

He knew them in advance; aspirations

Mad frustrations…each fit Divine Plan.

He saw our journey, beginning to end…

Glorious seasons when all goes right

Those that fall apart completely…

God is there for final “goodnight”.

He made us from His heart, love-full…

Never desires we despise our so-called

Imperfections…face, figure, uneven stature

Brief lack of grace, or weight.

God makes no junk, not single mistake… 

Doesn’t have second-thoughts and wish 

He’d drawn some aspect differently, reshaped

A bit…painted from another palette. 

When He looks upon us…even times we

Feel we’ve disappointed self and everyone

Who matters…His countenance glows with

Deep compassion, Good Father’s true delight.

Bible Verses:


Comment Box Quandary

I’m tense! I’m tense!

Maybe it’s the Full Moon coming

Or annual recertification meeting

That’s stressing me irrationally…

Or could it be the Comment Boxes

Which wind me up, make me crazy?

I don’t know what folks want to hear…

How, to their words, I should best reply.

If they share something sad with me

Whether current event, or from the Past

And I type compassionate, “I’m sorry”

It may not be what they’re looking for…

Sometimes they seem offended, “sore”.

But if I click LIKE…do a heart, smiley…

Will they think I lack sensitivity…?

Everybody’s different, I know…we

Come from all around the globe…

Different styles of communicating

What’s important, what we’ll disclose.

I’ve been blogging since 2011…I’m

Still unclear about what’s apropos.

I thought most people desired comments

A bit of back-and-forth, goodwill exchanged.

The world is more than sufficiently fractious

We shouldn’t feel wary of Comment boxes…

So, please spell it out, if you prefer I keep mum 🙂
