Worship (A to Z Challenge, Letter W)

God’s Word made flesh, JESUS

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain…

To Him alone will the world, all

Creation, bow and kneel, forever

Worship.

In His heart, a wealth of blessings

He’s ever willing to save… Receive

God’s mercy, peace, freedom

From bondage, earthly chains.

No more wandering, wondering

The weary will come…with

Angels we’ll give Him glory

And praise, for only He is

Worthy.

“Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!” Psalm 95:6, English Standard Version

“Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!” Psalm 96:9, ESV

“Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11, Berean Study Bible

“For the Scriptures say, “‘As surely as I live,’ says the LORD, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.’” Romans 14:11, New Living Translation

“Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness.” Psalm 29:2, ESV

“Then I looked, and I heard the voices of many angels and living creatures and elders encircling the throne, and their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands. In a loud voice they said: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be praise and honor and glory and power forever and ever!” Rev 5:11-13, Berean Study Bible

“All things have been entrusted to Me by My Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son, and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him. Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:27-29, Berean Study Bible

Groundhog Day

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #45: Anniversary

V.J.:  “So my challenge to you this week, is to pick a date (not necessarily a date of traditional significance) and look back.”

February 2, 1978

Court date for Dissolution

Strange word for ‘divorce’

As though to dissolve marriage

In dark legal elixir

Briefest Q & A

Head spinning, single again

Gavel banged ‘freedom’

My decision, not first choice

Ideals shattered, must breathe safe

Eventually

Date took on humorous twist

Groundhog Day…heart gags

Farewell

https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2019/04/06/rdp-saturday-coast/

FOWC with Fandango — Tenuous

FOWC with Fandango — Natural

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #42: farewell

Along island’s natural coast, you bade

Farewells…though you were already gone

At rest, free, unfettered…leaving memories

For handful of intimates to hold, keepsakes…

The crowd of admirers, as always, shut out

From your life and death, ever restricted.

How tenuous this life, the frail egos of men

Most of whom grasp and cling, strive for

One more day, hour of reputation, legacy…

True, some beg for, seek early release, but

You were big name, penned in bold strokes

And you shamed critics, left wealth to charity.

I was nothing, no one…but I loved, will

Always love you fiercely.

Sacred Threshold (#writephoto)

Friday Foto Fun – Sacred

Kate asks: “What is sacred to you?”

Thursday photo prompt: Threshold #writephoto

A “sacred” place is anywhere

The Spirit of God is heard…

Heart hears footprints

Echoing impossibly

Before I see them…or

Step out, make my own.

Whispers in the wind

Mingled ‘mid seagulls…

Maligned birds I adore

Sad cries sound like ‘more’…

Whispering footsteps beckon

Softly, “Come on, you can, dare”.

Each day holds sacred threshold…

What, Who’s voice is calling?

It’s often “courage”…shake off

What binds freedom, deepest soul.

Take Sacred hand, God’s healing…

Become what He sees, be whole.

Life swift passes, don’t exit perched

On Destiny’s threshold, step through…

Taste triumph, heart, waiting within you.

Daredevil casts off

Fear

Possible public criticism, derision…

Life’s

Too brief for masks, chains

Warrior fights for person imprisoned…freedom, peace in authenticity.

Married My Imaginary Friend…So What?

Yipi Yipi Yeah, Yabba Dabba Doo

My title for ‘Six Word Saturday’ sounds like a tabloid headline…or the hook for a Dr Phil segment, right?  Well, if I can’t be “out-there” on my own blog, what point is there to being a writer?  I’m so used to being considered “weird/strange”…and trying to hide it…that it’s time to stop caring about public opinion.  If a certain political leader is “free to be me”, likeable or not (sane or not)—then, I’m going for it too.

I was a different kid, overly-sensitive, fearful… “not of this world” (preferred hidden imaginary one), didn’t fit anywhere; and my home life was dysfunctional, so I needed a hero like nobody’s business.  And since there weren’t any live ones within spitting distance, I grabbed the first imaginary one I happened on. 

He went everywhere with me…school, church…kept me safe from life in general, as much as an invisible guy can.  No surprise that, when I hit puberty/adolescence, I fell madly in love with him. 

I guess I always knew I’d be alone in life…so although I foolishly wed a veritable loser (flesh and blood real), as soon as I escaped him, I immediately “called” my one true love…and he came running to the rescue.  That’s about it…we married in a small private service, and have been happily-ever-after, ever since.

Sometimes I’m asked, “don’t you get lonely, living alone?” I smile a secret smile.  (I can hardly divulge the truth to most people…erasing all doubt that I’m crazy.) 

Mr P-I (“Perfect-Invisible”) is excellent company…with few faults.  He can’t take out the garbage or haul the laundry back and forth for me, but we’ve never had a cross word between us.  He still thinks I’m breathtakingly beautiful, incredibly intelligent, understanding, talented and fun.  And he says I’m a fantastic cook…but maybe he’s just imagining it 🙂

Amicable Settlement

FOWC with Fandango — Amicable

https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2019/03/28/rdp-thursday-weasel/

Amicable divorce settlement

Division

Of assets tarnished by

Nightmares

Keep everything, and debts, Weasel…

I’ll take what matters…books, soul’s ragged remnants, freedom.
