You’re Glorious.

This is just something I wrote the other day:

You’re so unbelievable,

unbelievably beautiful,

You’re glorious, victorious,

givin’ us the vision of Your mission

to see all of Your children sing,

“Glory, glory, glory! You are holy, holy, holy!”

and be filled with the joy You bring.

You’re glorious, victorious,

givin’ us the vision of Your mission.

You don’t owe us the gift of submission,

this wonderful salvation by Your Son,

when He said, “It is done.

What we could never do, You

accomplished on the Cross

to show us that we’re lost.

Trying to win on our own, we’d lose.

It’s not even that we’d have to choose,

it was that we’d never make it to You

on our own.

We never would’ve even gotten to the hill,

we wouldn’t have gone that far,

we’d have given up as soon as it started getting hard.

So You went before us and conquered the grave,

You overcame.

You’re so unbelievable that we need Your grace just to see,

We need you just to believe, because You’re

unbelievable, unbelievably beautiful,

You’re glorious, and You’re victorious,

so that we could go forward with the mission You gave to us,

to spread the Word of Your Son’s return,

of His victory on Calvary

for sinners just like me.

The Gift of Time

I love you more
than the sand on the beaches,
and you can never run farther
than My reach is.
Your life may be short,
but in Me it’s eternal.
You make plans, but can’t thwart
the ones I have for you.

You keep looking for love
over and over again,
as if My Word isn’t enough
to reassure you of My promises,
of the inseparability of My love
from you.
Even when you reject Me,
a prodigal would-be,
I love you just the same.
It’s not Me who moves,
but you
who walks away.

I’m here eternally,
since before the existence of Time.
The seconds are my heartbeat
made tangible for you
to understand what you’re part of.
But instead, humanity
has made it
into an impending doom.
In reality,
it’s a gift from Me to you.
Understand that because
you are part of it,
you are also part of Me,
and are fully loved
even when you don’t believe.

Real issues…

This is a poem I wrote a little while ago. It’s not perfect, and actually isn’t even finished, but I felt the need to share. And really, why not?

You say the issues are homosexuality and abortion,

but the underlying issue is sin and the distortion

of God’s word by the world we live in.

We’re trading regeneration for a decision

made when we’re not even comprehending

the scope and the vision of this mission that we’re on.

People say that living for Christ is to limit your life,

but when did we start taking sinners’ advice?

They say that God’s just a way to get your life to be fulfilling,

then as soon as it’s there you just ditch your King.

Like orthopedic shoes, you

only wear it long enough to fix your issues,

then it gets removed, your heart wasn’t moved, you

are disillusioned with the false ideas they’re feeding us

about decisionism versus regeneration,

about God’s love for us and our love for Him.

You think you’re disillusioned with God,

but He’s not the problem. It’s us, and our thoughts.
