Come Home, Son

IMG_3011

Doubtful mind, hesitant steps…
Tentatively, he made his way home
Yet fearing, he’s become unloved
He turned back…
But his father,
He longed for his return
For everyday, every evening
He stood by the gate,
And waited… for the return
Of His Prodigal son

On The Potter’s Wheel

IMG_3005

Battered, Bruised,
Broken by the Fall,
Cadavers
We were,
Ravaged by Sin;
Hapless, Hopeless,
Helpless we sat,
On the slab
Of Divine surrender,
Desperate
To find meaning,
In endless motions
Of Daily Living;
Remoulded, Recreated,
Revived, Renewed,
On the Potter’s Wheel;
Wheels of eternal Pardon.

Umber pots of Clay,
Earthen Vessels
We are,
In the Palms of the Potter;
And,
The Excellency of our works,
The Adulations from our lips,
Our eternal Incense
To Him.

You Put A Spell On Me

You put a spell on me,
Like one in a trance,
Eyes burrow into my thoughts,
Words burn within,
Spellbound- unfathomable love!
In a daze I open my life,
In a jiffy You dethrone my old heart-
Waterworks, in buckets,
Droplets of joy, ruined mascara…
Lies and lustful manipulations,
All gone!
Good riddance! Bad rubbish!
Divine metamorphosis!
Absolute transformation!
A new heart! A new life!
Saved… Changed… I am!

Daily Prompt: Trance

Light Has Come!

In His Light, we see light…

Dream Desire Achieve

Deep in the tunnels of rage
Bound in the chains of hate
Darkness surrounding like a gate
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Drowning in the oceans of sin
Buried in its seabed within
Lust enslaving like a gin
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Crouching in the corners of guilt
Ashamed with the depth of your filth
Hiding in the covers of your quilt
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Wallowing in wounds of the past
Vowing to avenge with a blast
Pining with emotions of downcast
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

May the Light of the gospel shine into our hearts and draw us nearer to the Lord, Amen.

Extra Additional Grace

Some folks are easy to deal with,
More like a walk in the park,
Others are much more difficult,
Causing you some irritation of sorts,
You can’t just find a way around it,
Like a sore thorn on your flesh,
They sting, they prick, they kick,
You frown, you fret, you stress,
They drive you to your limits,
You spit out words you do not mean,
Worse part is that sometimes,
They are part of your daily life,

In times like these, we need
Extra additional grace,
Grace to show love unfeigned,
Grace to pray through the pain,
Grace to go the extra mile,
Grace to tolerate with a smile,
Grace to forgive and forget,
Grace to act more like Christ,
Extra additional grace

In The Amazon or The Pacific? Where?

Where can I go?
Where would I run to?
If I scamper down the rabbit’s hole,
Or climb the Eiffel Tower,
If I hide deep in the Amazon,
Or make a bed in the Pacific,
At the top of Mt. Everest,
Or down in the belly of a whale,
At home silently reading a book,
Or at the war fronts of Iwo Jima…

Wherever I am, whatever I face,
I know, You are there with me,
I know, I am safe, always safe,
In Your everlasting arms.

(A poem inspired by Psalms 139)

Daily Prompt: Scamper
