When feelings follow gravity

When feelings follow gravity
And are a product of naivety
Of trusting people’s nature
Your faith is in the creature.

For thinking to defy gravity
Be a product of spirituality
Trusting in the Graceful
Your faith is in the Faithful

A “Good” Friday tweet

Good Friday’s message: more than I can fathom
Now in Christ: no longer in Adam,
The crucifixion: and the Father’s loss
My life now: the power of the cross

With us, His glory and love to share.

Covenant Community

Can you see ?
We are a covenant community ?.
How do you know ?
Why should you believe us ?.

Christ lives in us
His life reflects in us
why not join our bus ?.

For we cry together
sigh together
die together
fly together
try together
why together.

For we give together
live together
forgive together.

We are disciples together
Read bibles together
We are tribal together.

We thrive together
We jive together
We strive together
Survive together
Arrive together
Revive together.

We are for each other
Assure each other
Secure each other
Make pure each other
Mature each other.

For we stick together
click together
tick together.

Can you see ?.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (‭John‬ ‭13‬:‭34-35‬)

Killing the spider

All her her fears
Were based on a lie
If you deal with the lie
The fear will die.

She dealt with the lies
Bottled up inside her
Not cleaning the cobwebs
But killing the spider.

From a little grows a lot

A garden, a tree and one law
A whisper
A temptation
From a little grows a lot.

Five loaves, two fish and one boy
Feed five thousand
Twelve baskets remain
From a little grows a lot.

Seven loaves and a few disciples
Feed four thousand
Seven baskets remain
From a a little grows a lot.

A believer, a few of his friends
Bread from a basket, a coffee
Shares, inspires, informs, imparts
From a little grows a lot.

A harvest of grain
First the blade, then the kernel
Then the kernel becomes complete
From a little grows a lot.

John, Herod, a wife and a daughter
A rebuke then a dance
A platter
From a little grows a lot.

An eye that sees
An ear that hears
A mind that remembers
From a little grows a lot.

The Father, the Covenant and the Son
The Seed dies in the ground
Becomes The Life
From a little grows a lot.

Three thousand people in Jerusalem
Believing hearts
Birth of the church
From a little grows a lot.

A throne, a sanctuary,
Blood sprinkled
A full house
From a little grows a lot.

Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?” They said to Him, “Twelve.” “Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?” And they said, “Seven.” So He said to them, “How is it you do not understand?” (‭Mark‬ ‭8‬:‭18-21‬ NKJV)

Then He said, “To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what parable shall we picture it? It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth; but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade.” (‭Mark‬ ‭4‬:‭30-32‬ NKJV)

Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (‭Luke‬ ‭14‬:‭23‬ NKJV)

So we are good by nature

“The golden age, we’ll then revive, each man shall be a brother,
In harmony we all shall live and till the earth together,
In virtue trained, enlightened youth shall move each fellow creature,
And time shall surely prove the truth that man is good by nature.”

Scottish poet, Robert Burns

So we are good by nature
Is each person’s unique feature.

But this is not reflected
In life that has selected
Facts that defy all logic
How things have become tragic.

We’re swimming in the clouds
Not standing on the ground
If we truly think
That there is no link
Between relativist fruit
Wearing individual suits
And the acid rain
Burning deep Earth’s pain.

Scotland Rugby

For all supporters of the Scotland rugby team who experience the roller coaster…

The highs of Scotland
The tries of Scotland
The sighs of Scotland
The cries of Scotland
The pies of Scotland
The rise of Scotland
The ties of Scotland
The whys of Scotland.

The lows of Scotland
The blows of Scotland
The flows of Scotland
The glows of Scotland
The woes of Scotland
The throws of Scotland
The clothes of Scotland
The foes of Scotland.

The flower of Scotland
The power of Scotland
The showers of Scotland
The hour of Scotland
The bower of Scotland
The tower of Scotland
The trousers of Scotland
The powder of Scotland.

The wins of Scotland
The shins of Scotland
The chins of Scotland
The skin of Scotland
The stings of Scotland
The sins of Scotland
The kings of Scotland
The Yin of Scotland.

Written while watching Scotland vs Italy at Murrayfield 28.2.2015. Scotland were leading until Italy scored on the full time whistle…the highs and lows…

(“Yin” is Scots for “one”. A “big yin” is a “big one”, a boss)

Bid

The investor decides to buy more shares
The profit he’ll make with fix his cares
And change his world for ever and ever
Buying this stock will prove him clever.

The investor decides to sell more shares
The profit he makes will fix his cares
And change his world forever and ever
Selling this stock will prove him clever.

“One person sells some shares. Another buys those shares, and they both think they are astute”.

In love with love

To be in love with love
Is to be in hate with hate.

To be at peace with peace
Is to be joyful about joy.

To be right about righteousness
Let’s you condemn condemnation.

To be a son of the Son
Identifies you with His identity.

A fork in the road

IMG_3561

I went for a walk
in Balquidderock wood
To a fork in the road
But which one was good ?.

Paralyzed by fear
Unsure where to go
Where is the ease ?
Where is the flow ?.

The one that seems easy
may be deceptive
what floods the brain
are thoughts so eclectic.

I take the first step
ahh !…that’s OK
Green light in my spirit
I’m on the right way.
