Sometimes God Finds Us – Even When We Run From Him

My Witness of the love and power of God for His Children

He’s always there. If I turn to the right, His Grace is there. If I turn to the left, His Mercy will find me. If I go back, He’s got me. If I go forward, I run straight into Him.

Just Seconds before this…!



The Halls of Heaven

It was just before my time was to come.
I would be leaving Thy presence, until it was done.
“It will be hard,” Thou had told me,
“How hard you know not,
How exquisite you know not,
Yea, how hard to bear you know not,
But fear not, for I have already sent
Your older Brother, and He will make it all right.”

Then, Thou didst hold me in Thy arms for five hours,
Comforting, speaking to and loving me,
Preparing me for what was to come,
For it was very, very scary.
“I’ll come down, when it comes to this time,
And witness to all, that if you truly love me,
I will not let you fall, but in due time,
You will conquer and fulfill all your godly call.”

Then, with trepidation and faith,
I walked with the Son to the portal,
And when to the place, we left with a kiss,
As Jesus said in a peaceful whisper,
“My son, you will put me through more
Than anyone else, but you’re worth it.
I know who you are to become to me.”
And we parted in a loving embrace.

Now, it wasn’t more what I would do,
Which would make Him suffer so,
But what would be done to me,
That would cause me to wholly abandon Him, and go.
Then at the peak, when my life was much too bleak,
I totally decided to take the spiritual leap,
And jump off into all oblivion,
Where Satan has all dominion.

So with Satan and all his devils,
His whole host prodding and shouting on,
My Father did something so miraculous,
For His hurting, rebellious little son.
He hurriedly left the halls of heaven,
Where He is sung to, loved and adored,
And rushed to our earth so sordid, so full of hate and scorn,
And faithfully fulfilled what he vowed to that morn.

Yes, my Father, the God of all the universe,
Left His heavenly throne, to rescue among the demon’s
Hateful harm and abase, wrapping me faithfully in His arms,
Pulling me steadily away from that ledge,
While I screamed and kicked Him in the face.
I will not repeat the words I cried,
As I cursed my Father so, but all the while
He knew who I really was, and would not let me go.

So there it had happened, as He said I would see,
“I will personally come down to save you,
And bring you back with Me.
I went down into to depths of hell to rescue you,
And I’d do it all over again, because you are my son,
And never ending friend. I will never let my children fall,
Who truly love me, and give me their all.
Our relationship will never end, for I am Thy Father, Amen.”

Divine Visions

Vision of Love

In a dream divine,
My vision of the sublime,
I entered Heaven.

I lingered and longed,
To stay in holy perfection.
As I did, I bade.

The Lord inviting,
I moved in realms of glory,
My eyes were opened.

Beholding, I felt,
My heart expanding,
Grace, love in my soul.

All around me felt,
Our hearts knit and melt as one.
Now returning home.

My mind sees a place,
Where sin nor time doth hold face.
All in one embrace.

Love in Every Condition

Millennial Life

Perfect light, treasure bright,
Happily playing, I see the might.
Babes, learning in a world of Christ’s love.
Angels, ministering all around us.

God smiles, in His eyes I am found.
Bringing me peace, on solid ground.
Wisdom is attained, letting go of worldly crowns.
The Truth, in Love and Spirit, lifts up glorious sounds.

We live in divine, wonderful and marvelous times,
When all good will come about, through miraculous signs.
We will all succeed, as we share our love disclosing,
Giving God’s light and truth to all, especially the unloving.

If you do not shine, you can, and I will.
As we build our foundation upon the rock of God,
All will work for our good, learning through health and ill,
Though it be our nightmares, which drive us on.

The truth is, we all have them, yet,
I feel blessed to have had mine,
For love in its purest form, ignites fire, set,
By the intercession of our eternal Christ.

Straight from God’s heart, to ours, in kind,
He freely loves, heals and gives caring life.
I long for His kingdom, it is in my heart and mind.
This gift is ours, to make at One, in sweet delight.

I want to share this message with all, be wise,
And give yourself away, to heed the master’s calling.
Do not be swayed by the sickness, nor fooled by the lies.
I don’t know why so many lives have fallen.

Good choices free us, as we lean on the words of God.
We have so much to offer, we need to share the gospel with all.
As we impart, come, eat, drink, and be full with so much more.
Do not be scared, for He has walked your path before.

In all your troubles and burdens, have you had rest?
Come, follow Him, for it is as He says, you get the very best!
He is the Life and Light of the world, clean, strong and godly!
Share yourself with Him, and become sanctified, full and holy.

He will mercifully set a place with you to dine,
And One on one, teach you how to fly.
Thank you Lord Jesus, Brother, Savior without end,
For being my dear loving God, perfect ally and friend.

Spending Time With My Holy One

I Love Thee My Lord

Lord, I want to meet Thee again.
I want to be with Thee, like then.
Please come as I worship Thee,
One on One as brother to the Son.

Thou dost talk with me a while,
Turning my turmoil into a smile.
Renewed, I kneel and worship Thee,
As Thou dost tenderly love me.

<First Chorus>
I cherish my time with Thee.
In awe I gladly receive,
Turning over my offering,
Of strain and suffering.

Thou art here to comfort and heal,
With hands upon my head so still.
Thy words are said; I see the stars,
And all Thy creations at large.

Everything comes into view.
Most of all, I see Thee true,
Dying for me, the least of these,
Giving Thy sacred life for peace.

<Repeat First Chorus>

I am sure of Thy love for all.
In Thy hands I stand up tall.
When I need Thee, I can see Thee,
Always comforting and redeeming.

<Bridge>
Just before our time is through,
I sit in Thy lap, give Thee a kiss,
And take a nap, as Thou dost tell me,
Beautiful stories from Thy life.

How I am in Thy dreams divine.
Then with love, Thou art in mine.
Before Thou dost depart,
Thou dost kiss me, close to heart.

<Second Chorus>
Thy host watching, singing along,
Giving hope to stay strong.
Thou art mine and I am Thine.
I love Thee my Lord.

<Repeat Second Chorus>

My Poetic Journey Has Led Me Here

Woodwind Experience

My elementary experience in being a son,
Came as I lay pondering on how my heart was won.
Father had sung to me on a woodwind Shawm.
I had felt His tender mercies melt my icy dawn.

Next came the strings with high and low stirrings.
These layers hemmed me in with notes appealing.
My art was born and crafted in the core of me.
This language of new creation my choice of speech.

Then came percussion inside my heartbeat soul.
I raised the banner beat attempting inner control,
Not realizing this alone was not my solemn role.
Who was I to ask for such a grandiose goal?

My inner longing for home and being whole,
Became my sole appetite and ambition for condole.
This heart which misfits its own housing,
Is broken down from all this crowding.

I want fluid Spirit flowing through my veins,
As wind through a flute, proclaiming harmonious strains.
“Oh, how can a heart which bleeds be the instrument of peace?”
Only a Savior can answer these cries of, “Please!”

Empty, and then fill this eroded emotional vessel,
That I may cross back into life, from this rifted threshold.
I desire a soul that’s innocent and wise,
Which takes only Godly delight in family ties.

How have I been undone all this time; never free,
Through all knowing plans, with races won and yet to run?
Because I am not the master but He,
And in this musical key I chose to agree.

The Importance of Family

Family

Mine is a gift from God,
To be born of loving parents,
Who willingly spend their all,
To nurture as their call.

The way to happiness,
Is about selflessness.
It begins with giving life,
And continues in spreading light.

Amongst each trial we bear,
Is a strength deeper than every care,
Which holds us all together,
For we are a family forever.

Now and for all eternity,
We are cherished by God as glory,
For we are His family,
Sons and daughters of His royalty.

As we live faithfully,
We will return someday,
To reunite everlastingly,
And progress after Deity.

We shall not falter nor fail,
For we are sent to prevail,
And after all we learn and do,
God will uphold all His faithful true.

With patience we will run the race,
Knowing that as we seek His face,
One day we’ll be in His embrace.
This is what strengthens the family race.

Shane

The Meaning of LOVE

Love

Love is eternity to me.
It transcends all beauty.
It encompasses reality,
And overwhelms formality.

It reaches deep and long,
Makes right from wrong,
Brings hope to go on,
And makes weak things strong.

I’m in love with compassion,
Passionate about intimacy,
Live for bliss and holiness,
And lay down as a lamb in peace.

Worth giving, worth living in,
Worth giving into, and living true.
This force is not forced,
It is God given, to be the source.

It will remain, and can’t be contained.
It is feeling, sacrifice, said and done,
Charity realized, wholly prized as the Son.
Love is open, ever growing, wise and fun!

Never to be disguised, love.

Finding Your Place of Grace Now

In This Quiet Place Again

I am in this quiet place.
I can hear laughter as they race,
To join me by these waters,
To tell stories of our journeys.

Shortly I feel their touch,
As our hands and faces embrace.
We are happy tonight,
Here in the quiet moonlight.

It is my friends whom I love so dear.
We are dancing and singing with endless cheer.
Then comes a gentle man,
To share in our evenings plans.

We sit around the edge,
Of the sweet river bed,
And listen with our hearts,
To our Christ, whose words He imparts.

As He tells the water calms,
And the wind suddenly stills.
The sounds of nature all around,
Become quiet, so that He is the only sound.

It penetrates my soul,
As I feel His words unfold,
And I think to myself,
It’s worth it, I’m glad I didn’t quit.

I could go on like this forever,
And I will, and it will only get better.
For my peace and rest I enjoy,
I am full of eternal life and joy.

I am here in this quiet place again,
As I see that I’m on earth,
But I know where I will go,
As I feel my endless worth.

I can come here at any time,
And in time that’s where I’ll be,
To share my forever
And eternity, with deity.

Shane

A Poet’s Christmas

The Christmas Child

Sharing, caring, darling child,
Soon to be so strong and mild.
After comes the One whom she,
Sees in Him the One to be.

Mary gives the Christmas child.
Life He wins through godly trial.
Come increase in His love and peace,
Until all works of darkness cease.

All the earth He made to give,
So His brothers and sisters may live.
In Him all life has place.
In Him is found our holy grace.

His heart is always open,
To receive and heal us from sin.
His hope is always sure.
In Him we can all be made pure.

Giving us gracious gifts, He renews our lives,
With repentance He is bound to us through holy ties.
His hands that bore the cross,
Can lift us up and make up all our loss.

His Father is our Sire,
Who gave us rebirth through His holy fire,
That if we will through freedom come,
He will guide us on the path of His Son.

My heart cries out, “How holy and great Thou art!
Make me Thy steward by setting me apart!
Oh merciful and loving gentle Jesus,
In Thy loving arms receive us!”

My faith in Thee is pure,
My hope and salvation sure.
My everlasting need is filled in Thee.
My everlasting soul is forever free!

The beauty of it all,
Thou hast saved me from the fall.
My life embraces Thy love.
My strength comes from Thee above.

Free at last, free from the past,
My heart has turned from stone to glass!
The effect of my sin is no more,
Thy love and work hath carried me ashore.

Once more fresh and anew in Christ,
I gratefully receive this gift of Godly price.
And with this life Thou hast given me,
I’ll bless all others to come unto Thee!

The Lord has already taken,
Your Load; born Your Cross.
He’s not forgotten You, graven,
Upon the palms of His hands.

You are the Lord’s delight,
The reason He died.
Our Lord is Risen!
You are forgiven!

Shane

An Exciting New Poem, “Just Off The Press!”

Source

One goal and many choices,
But one is heard among the voices.
We are learning to battle out the bad,
Changing for a new heart that’s glad.

Let’s look at the sources,
There are two opposing forces.
One says come and stay,
The other says get lost, go away.

As we sank down from the trip that lead to misery,
We thought we’d reached the point of no return.
Then we found a lightened destiny,
Which blazed a trail and made us burn.

Purifying flames made us come alive.
Minds were carried through the veil of time.
We were set down again on barren climbs,
Once again aided to cross the jagged divide.

He again resounds, “Come, follow me.”
A simple phrase among the many,
But more profound than any,
And in these words, a precious melody.

We are the ransomed, in a world of the damned,
Reversing the process, giving light and hope to man.
Chosen to do the work of saving lives,
This right we honor, and in it shine.

In living according to His word,
We gain the reward of whom we serve.
We must attain our goal from the right source.
Be sure you are following the right course.

Shane
