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.

“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

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His image with intensifying glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinth 3:16-18, Berean Study Bible

ABC’s of Faith-Walk

http://www.napowrimo.net/day-nineteen-4/

Optional Prompt:  “write an abecedarian poem – a poem in which the word choice follows the words/order of the alphabet.”

Another eleventh hour entry, color me Amazed!

Able, Blessed to be Called by Christ

Divine invitation, heart’s Desire

Everything isn’t Easy about this Faith-walk

But it’s Greater than anything life without

It has offered…and Heaven’s at my

Rainbow’s end.  I’m sealed IN Christ Jesus

With Kiss of Holy Spirit…it’s LOVE‘S Marvelous

Magnificent journey, Nothing else will measure

Up NowOnly Jesus satisfies, gives Peace

In circumstances where no peace exists (mind

Filled with Questions Raging, Soul in Torment).

Undeserving of grace, I Understand He Views

Me through His Blood, Valuable—which is 

Wealth the World can’t afford (says I’m not 

Worthy)—but God’s thoughts, Ways are far

Above what people can conceive.

God’s communion with me is more than

Xenial; I’m not mere friend or guest, but

Beloved daughter…

He’s polished all my Yesterdays with

His goodness…so, I’ve got my Zeal on

Must talk-talk-talk about Him🙂

Heart Like a Boulder (NaPoWriMo)

Heart like a boulder

Not hard-edged, stony, but huge

Heavy with love’s thoughts

Yellow creases ’round your eyes

Sunshine; gold delight, your kiss

Man without equal

Love which couldn’t be copied

Spring, reminiscent

April’s flowered innocence

And I, still longing for you

Ferry Me, Love (NaPoWriMo)

http://www.napowrimo.net/day-eighteen-5/

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/04/16/ferry/

I’m skating in at nearly the eleventh hour to hopefully fulfill NaPoWriMo’s optional prompt, which speaks to grief, loss, love… Ennle


Ferry me, in your arms, Love

Cradled across Time, opal-starred

Ocean…where you are forever.

Take me back to childhood’s

Naïve belief that dreams were

More real than imagined possibles

Flights of whimsy fanciful…not

Slated to only come true for

Someone smarter, an exotic

Gilt-edged rose; or one not broken

Too soon to untwist brain’s bent

Wires and limbs of heart, their pale

Weak marrow diseased.

Ferry me, in your arms, to a place

Where you’d love me without

Question, second thought as to folly

Or wisdom, others’ opinions…

Because you knew your own mind

Captained your ship to success, against

Critic’s sharp (petty, envious) waves…

Because the 30 years’ span, differences

Between your bright-lights world, mine

Would disappear, mere movie mist…

The sky is prickled with gemstone’s fire

Ferry me, my Love…

The Writing Slate

https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2019/04/07/sunday-writing-prompt-choose-an-antique/

The old writing slate…clutched

In hand, close to breast…lingering

Chalk dust lies, as lace, on memories.

Stern blank surface where I learned

Proper education’s fundamentals:

Spelling, grammar, diagramming

Sentences; long-division, algebra…

When day’s studies were completed

I wrote your name inside heart, with

Mine…dreaming of Love, a future

Where we’d forever-never part…but

Life had many lessons yet to come.

For the Future can’t be diagrammed…

It’s easily misspelled; desires’ hope

Subtracts to smallest fraction…and 

“X” remains unknown.

God’s Love (A to Z Challenge, Letter L)

Okay, I’m such a goof…thought we had the weekends off during the A to Z Challenge…so, last night I realized I was going to run out of days before I got to “Z”.  Guess we only have Sundays off…honestly, you’d think this was my first rodeo 😉  So…I’m gonna have to double up a bit…but you’re under no obligation to increase your visits.  Good grief, I’m hopeless!

Dreams On Pyre

Twittering Tales #131 – 9 April 2019

Photo by Adhitya Andanu at Pexels.com

Though it was raining

The evening I left, the

Plane looked to be in

Flames…I died tortured

Death of heart in

Shattered shards

Dreams laid out on pyre.

Not even a mile from

Beach, I should have walked

Into the waves slow deep…

No one would have noticed

Till steam rose like lava, below.
