True Love

Jopana’s Journey

Father, I know I am Thy literal son,
And Thou hast told me, Thou hast totally forgiven me.
I wholly believe Thee, but I don’t feel worthy,
To even be called Thy son, cut off spiritually by the natural man.

It is under the Son of God, I have been adopted in,
And after the resurrection, after I’ve thrived to the end,
Having proved true, I will then be physically begotten too,
Having become Thy true favored son, for my complete soul will be made wholly new.

We all must grow up into a narrowing of focus, until we reach the other side,
Where we come out into the purity of light, which then widens.
For all are in The Great Christ, and we too must die,
But in the Father, all shall be made alive.

This is our test, and we must do our very best,
As Thou dost make up all the rest, in restoring us,
To a perfect brightness of spirit, love and intelligence,
Both in body, spirit and soul, to inherit peace, sealed as one whole.

We all play an important role,
For all are needed in the great Christ’s sacred soul.
Please Lord, help us all to be true in Thee, sanctified,
For in Thy blood, our life’s supply, we too must die.

Thou hast all these sacred treasures of truth, within Thy eternal, master plan.
So please, don’t let go of our desperate hands.
Within the building blocks of the eternities, our families, I know we can,
Like the good ground beneath our feet, have our lives in holy love so sweet.

The atonement of our Lord, is for each sister and brother,
Which helps heal our wounds, and binds up our souls to each other.
We need to be united in Thee, for if not, then who are we really?
I want our names to be wholly in, Christ Jesus.

An Inspiring Teaser

Passing Time

I am way ahead of time.
I pass each minute as I climb.
I am in the current of life,
Above the lower strife.

God’s words unveil the truth,
And my soul can behold the proof.
I am lifted up, as was He who drank the cup,
And took all ill, and neutralized it with His love.

His life and death passes time,
Both before and beyond,
And recreates all of essence,
Which resides in His presence.

Time is now an issue of the past.
I am no longer a slave to its tasks.
I have been divided into one,
And can now see into the Son.

So as time passes, I am in the present,
And I know the outcome of the future.
For sight is following the light,
And living over the ruptured night.

What will you do with your time?

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.

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.

First Sign

Hello, and a big Welcome to the Shiftless Core Blog!

Every day I wake up and I hear the song.
Over on the mountain is where I belong.
Walking with my guide right by my side,
I’m nailed to the cross but I’m alive!
That’s my first sign!

These are some words that came to me over 20 years ago, when I knew and realized that I must change my life.

My child I’m sorry that you must see misery.
It will turn to joy for you as you hold on to me.
My love like the morning light,
Will set a pace for you just right.
The way before is tried and true,
You can use the truth as living proof.
There is a shortcut I’m showing you,
It’s keeping the commandments for they are true.
That’s my first sign!

All because the Lord knew and drew me in, I was able to come out of the hell I was in, and emerge a new creature, from chrysalis to a beautiful new butterfly. A traveler in metamorphosis, as I sometimes like to call them, a flutterby. Now I’m attempting to share any good gift I can with others.

This is the first sign I’ve received,
I’ve been running blind and deceived.
The first sign I see inside,
Tells me I must kill my pride.
First I must fight the war within,
Give to Him all of my sin.
Become the life He’s living in me,
Break these chains and become free!
That’s my first sign.

As my life began to change, I began to know and feel great hope, and understand and know more fully, the love, power and tender mercies of God the Eternal Father, and His Son Jesus Christ.

It’s truly worth it, so run to the light.
Go forward and embrace everything right.
Give and receive as my servant son.
Be made whole and made at one.
That’s my first sign!

With this said, here are the plans:
• For now, I’m going to post motivating and uplifting poems and messages, to inspire and edify, giving an idea of the kind and quality of Shiftless Core lyrics and brand.
• As things evolve, I plan to get more involved in illustrating the evolution of Shiftless Core, and its progress as a band.
• Once fully up and running, this truly is the place for all Shiftless Core Music News!
