Transubstantiation

When we accept the redeeming blood of Christ

into our veins

When we invite the Spirit of the Living God

into our souls

Our very bodies are not our own

Yes, we have traded our mortal flesh

for the eternal skin of God

When we walk through life

it should not be you they see

but Jesus Christ returned,

ready to do miracles

feed the poor

hang with the lowly

hear the voice of the Father

and live intentionally,

bearing His sufferings

for the greater good.

The Secret Self

“No one will hide an extremely valuable thing in something of equal value. However, people often put things worth countless thousands into a thing worth a penny.”  -Gospel of Phillip 1:22

We stash money in mattresses and piggy banks to keep it safe. We bury treasure in the sand. In the same way, we have a soul inside this humble flesh, waiting to be brought out, to shine in the darkness of the present day.

How we all long to see it! How we celebrate when the light shines forth!

Get to know one another. Let your secret self out.

How wonderful is the light of your soul!

The Embody Project

As I study the Embody Project,

I notice a few commonalities:

the shedding of clothes

brings with it the shedding of judgements,

the shedding of hangups

about the body and others’ opinions of it.

When we get beyond all the layers,

we transcend the physical

Suddenly, everyone is prophetic,

spiritual

It’s like we step into our true Edenic selves,

who walk with Jesus just like we used to

before our flesh knew shame.

I Hold the Diamond that is My Soul

I hold the diamond that is my soul.

I hold it close, then let it go

It spins and swirls inside the wind

with sunlit surface glistenin’.

Even I am in awe of it,

for it is quite magnificent.

Mine, yet not mine

it belongs to all,

until, at, last to the Earth it falls

and I ascend to realms above

held close inside the Savior’s love.

So, enjoy my soul as you will;

soak it in; have your fill.

I will do the same with yours,

reveling in the workings of the LORD,

Who gives to all and takes away,

meticulously perfecting

all He surveys.
