Dear little boy,
so scared and thin,
it is time to become
to take the hand of the lonely
to feed the hungry
to lead the church
and cover your family
in eagle’s wings.
Welcome everyone you meet
into a safe and empowering place
where they can explore and grow.
Make bold choices
Be patient and kind.
but a simple man
in love with
and with God.
We’re all so beautiful
Made from clay and bone
Filled with the warmth of blood
pumping wildly ‘neath
the softest of skin
Our mouths breathe forth the breath
first put into by God,
the laws say nothing is lost
The power and majesty of the First Day
still surrounds us
LORD, open my eyes so I can see it
angels, demons, hope life love danger
let me fall to my knees and thank you
for I am in of everything
o Mighty Majestic Creator
of heaven and earth.
Look upon this simple flesh
Mold it as clay into Your glorious design
I am a masterpiece
inside the sculptor’s beautiful hand.
look upon my hands
and wash them clean
my eyes and set them ablaze
and shoot it upon into the sky
into the heavenly realms,
lock it away where no demon of hell
can touch it.
Now, I am yours
I am mighty in You
Teach me to do Thy will
It is the nature of God to reveal Himself
It is the nature of man to try to conceal Him
His fingerprint is everywhere,
in the rocks, trees, and air
Man covers the universe in concrete and steel,
he erects walls
while God builds bridges
Jesus Christ being the ultimate bridge
between holy God and His fallen children.
Man covers over the cross with outstretched hands,
claiming “I am god”
Yet the true God remains always before us,
waiting, inviting us in,
wanting us to experience Him
to the utmost.
In Acts, we see the Holy Spirit descending upon the disciples in tongues of fire. In Isaiah, we see an angel branding the tongue of the prophet before sending him out.
We who know God, who belong to His family, have His words on our lips. By His power and will, we speak wisdom and prophesy. All insight and encouragement we may give goes forth directly from Him.
As the saying goes, “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” We must guard our hearts and minds, so only good goes out of it.
This of it this way, God spoke and the world was created. John calls Jesus Christ the very Word of God. This same Jesus brings our dead souls back to life, works miracles, and leads the way through life temporal into life eternal.
Today, let us meditate on the power of words and speak what is good.
Bless you, my friends. God is good.
God called Mary the faithful one.
God called Gideon a mighty man of valor
Both were caught by surprise.
We get so obsessed with exterior image.
God, who created us,
calls us by a name that catches us totally by surprised.
Today, listen quietly for the voice of God,
He is whispering insights into your being,
into the totality of human existence.
Will you be present and aware enough to hear
the voice of God?
