You Get What You Want

You Get What You Want

You get what you want
In the end
What you’ve spent your life
Pursuing
Wrapping up what you’ve
been doing

Should you be surprised
When at last you realize

What you turned
A deaf ear to
You knew all
Along was true

But it was old
And stuffy
And offered
The surface
You could not
See behind

You get what you want
In the end
What you’ve been
Busy sowing
Decides what to you
Is owing
He was not beyond
Your knowing

But now beyond your reach
From your side of the breach

We were asked
To believe
The Word
Not our
Eyes

You traded
The plain truth
For satan’s
whispered lies.

The Spirit Within Me

The Spirit within Me

The spirit within me
Trembles at the approach
Of Your presence

And rises in
Anticipation
At the touch
Of Your Word

The weight of Your glory
Presses upon me
And though
I sink beneath it

I know it frees me
From the world’s
Impressment

Rather
To be stamped
With the visage
Of the One
Who loves me.

Crumb Crunchers

Crumb crunchers

Crumb crunchers
So dear to me
Thumb suckers
Cling to my knee

Who knows
What I’ll find
In my pockets?
While guarding
Their fingers
From power sockets

I am the
Tickle monster
Who ekes out
Giggles galore
When up-turned faces
Beg for more

I toddle among
These
Knuckle gummers
Whose mouths
Have a date
Across the summers
Here and there
They osmose
Through their tongues

Tis the age and
Time to whet
Their palates
So they’ll know
The uniqueness
Of Your Word
Through the sweetness
Of the honeycomb

So that in time
To come
They shall not depart
From Him.

Day Six Hundred Seventy Nine #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

Tomas found a way up to a part of the range that opened onto a high tableland. It made our going much easier.  Though we did lose track of the army moving down below because our trail led far away from the edge.

We were all alone except for the high flying birds of prey. One in particular kept a wary eye on us as he circled on a thermal overhead. As we continued forward, without faltering, it lost interest and caught another thermal that spun it away from us.

Along the way I recited the Word to the Captain to help him internalize it into his being. And he in turn read aloud the Gospels of Yeshua to me.

I Know

I Know

I know
Thy Word is living
And speaking
“Follow Me.”

I know
That by Thy Truth
I am set free
To be
All You meant me to be

I know
Thy Spirit quickens
And meets my every need
All I need do is ask
And You give
Boldness for any task

I know
That You know me
And I have no higher desire
Than to live my days before
The eyes of Holy Fire

And with those similarly viewed
Laying claim to the same insight
By the hope that purifies imbued,
Cleansed that we may be light.
