The Open Door


 Empty words won't move inside
The way love does.
To learn this disparity
Is to throw oneself open.


Then the true account begins...


Love took as an opened 

book
That was set upon a table - enabled
To be articulated and conceived.
As hints of imprints
Seemed attached to your 

inner being.


Once sinking, we are recalled to surface.
In confessing, "I don't know why?"
There awaits a defining reply.
In stepping toward Love's Door.


We are finally found inside...

Crossing That River Jordon

  We reach The High and lofty One
Through Christ Jesus alone - 'God's own Son.'
Viewed that 'Tree' on bended knee
 

Secured our ticket for eternity!

Yes Jesus, we yearn to 'follow You.'
'Till our walk in faith is found true.
As we cross the Jordan river - yonder
To a reemerging tree of life (I ponder?)


Our heritage awaits us - upon a tranquil shore
As a 'cloud of witnesses' cheers us on - at 'the door.'
When that angelic 'trumpet' blasts
He's returned for 'His Bride' - at last!


'No more tears', tares or snares
As all regathered - banquet prepared.
At last; loved one's - embraced !
With shadows of grief - forfeits all trace.


In 'one accord', with joyous praise
With upright hands - we will raise.
We sought, "this Jesus" - as the Bible portrays
As our Savior and Lord! - there's no other 'Way'.
 

A Dialogue With God

  
The Defendant - "I petition you Lord this dim day - Pease take this habit away - no delay

."The Crown - "There are matters more pressing. Consider... I Am The Potter - you are the clay.


" The Defendant - "As You observe those tears that spout my fears; no one loves me - as far as I can see!"-

The Crown - "I forfeited my life as love offered - nailed to that tree"


.

The Defendant - "Alas! People view me as refuse - ready for the heap.

"The Crown - "Take heed!  I didn't create refuse -" I am the 'Good Shepherd,' you are the sheep

.

"The Defendant - "But what if I'm not one of the flock?

"The Crown - "My Spirit called ample times but you did not take stock.


"The Defendant - "I've done so much harm to my fellow clan - I'm conceived as an arrogant madman!"

The Crown - "Then spin the compass within Span your recourse as planned-and you will portray the Son's ray.

"

The Defendant - "As death's trap door draws near - could you undo my deeds?"

The Crown - "Recall the thief on the Cross with me? - a contrite heart was his only need as I secured his step into eternity."


The Defendant - "The grim shadow of death stalks me! - as you see our tears and lengthen my ill-spent years?"

The Crown - "Is not life without end your fate that nears- sufficient to console your earthly fears and fortify those that mourn in tears?"


The Defendant - "With my last breath, I confess you as Lord and Savior and in remorse - repent of my wayward behavior."

The Crown - The judge finds you... "not guilty" - witnessed by the tree on Calvary. Son, your new life has just begun!
