5/29 Poem: Lamp (Under) Stand


“No one lights a lamp and then covers it with a bowl or hides it under a bed.
A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house.
For all that is secret will eventually be brought into the open, and everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all.
So pay attention to how you hear.
To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given.
But for those who are not listening, even what they think they understand will be taken away from them.
Luke‬ ‭8‬:‭16‬-‭18‬ ‬‬

There’s something we must understand

5/18 Limerick: Hole Heart


Instead, one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out.

John 19:34

Lord I wanna have “hole heart”
So I am living a new start
When from me sin pours
I’m free to be yours
Where nothing will ever tear us apart

Today I will un-guard my heart — the right way!

5/16 Limerick: Real Authority


because He taught as one who had authority, and not as their scribes.

Matthew 7:29

I want an authority real
Beyond just emotional zeal
That changes the world
In which we’ve been hurled
To one where like Jesus we feel

Today I will live for God’s real world
Rather than settling for earthly illusions

5/11 Limericks: Space Maker


I wanna be a space maker
So I don’t become a heart-breaker
Help me take the time
For reason and rhyme
Lest I end up a Christ-faker

This world can be busy as hell
We all end up slaves to the bell
Unless I dare ask
Whether this task
Is more important than being well

Christ carried His peace in His heart
So maybe that’s where I should start
When my soul is true
I make space for you
Together, a new path we’ll chart

Today I will make space
For God to renew
What I fear to let go
