Honored Guest

Honored Guest
 
Powder sugar coated fingers, jelly stains,
Muck and mire clinging tightly
Lie says, outside is where you need to remain

The door though is opened wide
He in majesty beckons in name
Hand in hand walking beside

As servant bent low bathing in gentle affirmation
Not just feet but face and fingers too
Calling forth to the celebration.

Sweeping into beloved daddy’s arms
Brought forth as honored guest
Safely ensconced, worldly life can cause no harm

Yet stumbling forth once again into muddy hole
No strength of will to resist
Surely now the door will close

Yet still the beacon sounds
Enter here, water for washing ever supplied
Untarnished garment awaits with crown

 Come and dance, the call the same
Seventy times seven and forever more
The wiping away of shame

“Loved one”, continual access to Abba father
The invitation indelibly stamped in the son’s blood
Always and eternally beloved daughter

Belovedness

Belovedness

Treasured one, cherished and cared for
The place where you are seated in his heart
Loved never less only more

Bestowed from birth your belovedness
The earth has rubbed away the shine
And given names of otherness

 But this his assurance
His nature cannot else belie
By his atonement beloved transference


From this loved state,
Though often we try to deny,
You cannot escape

Belovedness is the gift
Your status never changing in his eyes
His Precious love do not resist

BE loved and love His Son
Then to others do impart,
Yahweh’s will to be done

Arise in this adoration
You are chosen by the Beloved
Bring now this belovedness to his creation

To all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
As He says also in Hosea, "I WILL CALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT MY PEOPLE, 'MY PEOPLE,' AND HER WHO WAS NOT BELOVED, 'BELOVED
For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
