Continuous Forgiveness Vs. The Sin-free Life

*

Deeper and wider, quicker, and more difficult, were the principles of forgiveness that Jesus brought to the table. Cleansed of our sins, and moving forward with a clear conscience, can a Christian continue to grow and grow until they finally outgrow their need for forgiveness?

The Star That Lit The Flame

 The Way

is the way

of truth and light.

May I know The Truth

when I hear it ring. May I see

thy Holy Light right in front of my face.

May I make a righteous choice

at every curious crossroad.

May I choose the road

chosen by someone

smarter than me

by God!

An Instance Of Grace


*

How does the Holy Spirit feel to our 5 bodily senses
when it co-mingles with our human spirit?

Our hearts are heavy – there is much suffering
we feel the pressure of unseen gravitational forces
bearing down on us – pushing us against the solid earth.

When the Holy Spirit invades
one’s physical and mental presence,
one begins to think one must be levitating.
The weight of doubt is so heavy…
and one doesn’t even know how heavy,
until one feels the weight drop in an instant.

Three As One

I went on this path one day – off the straight and narrow way

looking to find the unknown – unafraid to be alone

a skip in my stride – my smile a mile wide

passion perspiring inside.

.

Suddenly! There’s a shadow – beside my own.

“It can’t be so!” No one came with me, I know.

Nobody else wished to go.

Who could it be then? How shall I begin?

Where did it happen and when?

.

I’ll tell you a secret now – that only you can allow.

Stick with me for one moment – maybe you’ll find atonement.

Do you not have the time? It won’t cost a dime.

(Don’t be scared. It’s just a rhyme.)

.

Okay? Now, back to the trail…

not knowing that I could fail – sensing a treasure ahead

I take a left turn instead.

And to my surprise – right before my eyes

this other shadow complies.

.

I look – but no one is there!

With reason, I must compare…

Judging it, I do declare, “It’s not my own!”, but I swear,

it stayed right with me. I giggled with glee!

(Quite strange, you might agree.)

.

And so, I strode on through the wood

wond’ring if two shadows could

converge as one, if the light

from the sun was angled right.

.

I stopped in my tracks, and checked out the facts:

←  Three as One  →

Sun on our backs!

Guardian Shadow appear! Assurance is always near.

Tho’ crossroads never seem clear,

Directions tell me not to fear.

Whichever I choose, I know I can’t lose.

He’s already paid my dues!

For there are three that bear record in heaven,

the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:

and these three are one.

Living In God’s Frame Of Mind

I’ve been framed, by God! I have my own heavenly place.

I’ve been arranged! How odd – this life within His outer space.

And yet, He lives within me, too!

He who knows me through and through.

The One who makes all things new,

deserves my praise for all my days.

In gratitude for His loving kindness,

I framed a song of thanks.

* * * *

Thank you, Lord! Oh, thank you much!

~ I surely feel your loving touch ~

[ Square me in – Frame my mind ]

<- Set me free from time to time ->

Keep me hanging by a thread,

 like a thought inside your head.

Imagine me as I was made

in your image where I’m saved

forever!

“And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns,

and put it on his head,

and they put on him a purple robe.”

John 19:2
