Nothing can pull us away… #devotion

stream
 Oh the days are hard
the path is rocky
and my feet are weary
where can I go to find sleep?
Is there any protection
from the sky that is falling
trying to enter the reason
of my mind?
“Nothing can preserve you except…”
you hear this over and over
“just give in
give up…”
the silent tormentor
has gained a voice
in my head
and I am raw with fear
“Give In
We can help…”
But what are they offering?
More importantly what are they taking?
God’s love doesn’t evoke fear –
it’s result is peace
God’s love doesn’t evoke anger or hatred –
it causes us to love those who hate us
God’s love does not require us to destroy ourselves or others
IT is a trickling (healing) stream in the midst of the darkest night

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?…

Neither height nor depth, nor any other created things, will be able to separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”   ~Romans 8:35 and 39

 

 

 

Behind the Bumper #poetry

On the road of life there are sunshine days and their are exhaust filled bumps in the road. Yet each day is an adventure in a Studebaker

It was a perfect no bumps

breeze blowing hair

California reality

**

kick off shoes 

dip them in the stream of life

childish glee

***

bump 

blow out in my rubber existence

stop can you help?

****

on bent knees

before the chrome bent image

 I am behind you!

****

bump bump

as my limbs rattle

against the gravel of despair

*****

breathing hatred’s exhaust

leave me

on the side of the road

***

bump bump bump…
