Sealed Each in God’s Pew

This moment’s bequest
of a hearts’ full dare,
words spoken in hush,
they‘ve been sent-
they’ve been gone There.

Into the vast of
God’s heavenly might,
cast before All
with full faith
and loves bright.

These are not wishes,
they part from my veins.
Living and walking,
streams running forth new.
Set into Your Promise,
sealed each in God’s Pew.

Psalm 69:13
But as for me, my prayer is to you, O LORD.
At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.

Hebrews 10:19
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.

“I Praise You, Lord” from The Beloved

PraiseHolyHoly

When we see the Holiness of The Lord, our hearts become flooded with love. Seeing Christ brings a deep bow of humility and prayer of worship. Gratitude sweeps in like a soft arm that is holding with His Mercy; one that has held since that first moment of belief, now deeper, sinking with roots that find their way into the hours and minutes of day and night. His Holiness permeates all that reaches our hearts as we are lifted like flowers reaching to the sun. This wondrous Beloved, His Altar so high, yet given and giften through His Spirit. Miracle this, how we can pray. Flooded Love praises. Seeing Christ causes a blossom to hope, to believe and to reach with wondrous Love.

Psalm 136:1-7
God’s Gracious Love

136 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his gracious love is everlasting.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods,
for his gracious love is everlasting.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his gracious love is everlasting—

4 To the one who alone does great and wondrous things,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
5 to the one who by wisdom made the heavens,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
6 to the one who spread out the earth over the waters,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
7 to the one who made the great lights,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
8 the sun to illumine the day,
for his gracious love is everlasting—
9 and the moon and stars to illumine the night,
for his gracious love is everlasting—

“Pour, Godly Good”, by Linda Willows

I must fire the storm and let the rain pour.
I cannot hold still or lie down anymore.

A dance in me is burning my muse.
Hidden, sleeping, like an untouched long fuse.

It is painful to move; for too long, life unused.
I stir to wake, or forever to lose.

Break all apart until this heart starts.
Thunder the veins that would seem to depart.

Dance through the glass and the red fallen post.
Clear the halls filled with her irradiant ghost.

Let all the called winds bring Your heavenly Host
And find muse fired in skies that light Your Beauty most.

Mark all the told and invoke the birthed new.
Let all that is Sacred claim this motion’s due.

Leaping into the arms of your love’s Evermore,
Let the Godly in and sweet rainstorms pour.
