Encircling snare

Encircling snare

 In Naivety opening a dangerous can
 Leading down a treacherous  path
Innocent curiosity
 Turning into a monstrosity.
Losing site of the garden intent
Man and woman with God ever present
In His image designed.
Sin and Satan now leading the mind
Creating unhealthy desires
Dragging both parties into the mire
Women now objectified,
Men believing the lie,
“Images better than flesh”
“Woman are just objects”.
Serpent gripping our kinsmen,
Encircling in snare,
Blinding from needed warfare.
Complacent accomplices,
Leaving behind broken promises.
True Identity lost 
Feeding the addiction at all cost
Creating turmoil and strife.

Jesus who in death conquered life
Died for the bound as well as the broken
Captives to be made free simply by his name spoken
OH Jesus emancipate those who have been ensnared
Open their eyes to their sister’s, help them to care.
Break these strongholds we ask in your Name 
This also the reason you came
Not just for victim 
But for perpetrator too
Death and resurrection
Ample in power for restitution.

Thought life

Thought life

Brain working overtime,
Emotions ramping up,
Pulling through the grime.
Filled with self
But left with empty cup.

Thought life detrimental to one’s health.
The offer to partake of water deep
But the enemy comes with stealth,
His goal from God our soul to keep.

Thanksgiving key to opening the gate
Praising God to enter courts
Not our understanding but he who makes paths straight.
Thought life needing to veer back on course.
Bathing in holy presence, washing away sin
Simple repentance, no coercion or force
Gentle Conviction from spirit with in.

Renewing mind with eternal truth
Thought life aligned with Gods heart
Each day deciding to choose
Allowing God to create a work of art
Able to reach to others and soothe
Thought life no longer in control or on the loose

set awhile

Let’s set awhile together
Set on swings and feel the breeze
Back and forth in freeing rhythm
Just breathe and let our hearts beat in sync
Watch as my word is spoken
How the clouds form in mystical design
Come and set awhile and rest in me
My comfort here in arms wide
The work will still be there
 Come, set and rejuvenate
The busyness, the kingdom work, all in its time
Time now to set awhile
A father’s touch on the cheek
Words of rest and peace
When time to move be confident I will speak
Linger a little while longer yet
 Gather another tender hug
Set awhile lest you forget
Sole purpose of the cross
So we may in heaven above
Set forever in peace and love
