KISSING GOD   Leave a comment

Like a secret,

or a smile,

this, being awake.

Like walking through a different hallway.

It is full of people, but they see something else.

Somewhere else,

At another time.

I am here,

but not for your mind

or thoughts.

If you stop,

I mean really stop,

so that you get a kind of whiplash,

as the past and the future whirl away,

you just might get a glimpse of me,

actually standing in the same hallway,

smiling,

and kissing God.

LESS AGAIN- I must decrease   Leave a comment

Interaction

rarely goes beyond noise.

When you look at me,

you only see a reflection of you,

at least at first,

till you realize you can’t see me at all.

Stillness doesn’t belong.

Silence will only mean surrender.

Truth,

only means vulnerability

when you see it from here.

I am decreasing,

becoming less,

till you can’t see me at all.

And,

it is quite ok.

I don’t need to be seen.

I don’t need to be heard.

 I don’t need at all.

Love,

is ok,

just sitting,

and waiting

quietly.

BLAME GOD!!!!!!!   Leave a comment

When this life hurts,

I mean when it really, really hurts,

know that you are where you are,

by His hand.

By His love,

His amazing love,

and by His grace,

His amazing grace,

He has allowed you to be ,

right in the very center

of that oh so painful situation.

His gorgeous knowing eyes,

smile lovingly at you

through each painful moment.

You see,

you’re on a path.

That path is taking you home.

Every time you feel pain,

it is just you,

resisting the path.

It is just you,

resisting His love,

His grace.

We are not wrestling with flesh and blood,

in these tough situations.

Don’t blame man.

Blame God,

or rather,

blame yourself

or…………..

don’t blame at all.

Just relax.

Trust!

Go with the flow.

It will be ok.

He loves you,

so stop resisting.

Learn the lesson

of surrender

and acceptance,

and move on.

Its ok.

You are loved.

Just trust.

Don’t blame.

Just let go, and enjoy the ride.

The sooner you let go

and stop trying to control everything,

the sooner it will all be over.

You are the one

causing your pain.

So…………

STOP!!!!!!!!!

TRUST IS THE TREASURE!!!!!

Find it.

LOOKING FOR GOD??????   Leave a comment

JUST WHAT ARE YOU REALLY LOOKING FOR?

GOD?

SO MANY BOOKS,

SO MANY WEBSITES,

SO MANY EMPTY OPINIONS,

LIKE RABBIT TRAILS THROUGH  AN EMPTY DESERT.

TIME,

IS TOSSED AWAY,

AS YOU LOOK EVERYWHERE,

THAT IS EASY.

ARE YOU READY?

READY TO FIND GOD?

READY TO MEET HIM???????

I CAN TELL YOU HOW.

STOP!

STOP LOOKING!

STOP SEEKING!

STOP PACKING  AROUND YOUR GUILT,

AND EXCUSES.

YOU HAVE BEEN SHIRKING RESPONSIBILITY.

YOU HAVE BEEN SKIRTING TRUTH,

AVOIDING YOUR OWN ACCOUNTABILITY.

YOU KNOW THAT ALL THAT

RUNNING AROUND,

SEEKING AROUND

JUST DOESN’T GET IT DONE.

CHASING THE NEXT NEW TEACHING,

OR THAT ANCIENT TEACHING,

JUST LEAVES YOU DANGLING

RIGHT WHERE YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN.

SO,

MY LITTLE ONE,

PLEASE, PLEASE,

JUST STOP.

JUST STOP LOOKING…………….

If you really want to find God,

stop looking for Him.

and start looking for yourself.

you know,

your self.

that little one,

hidden

behind so many walls.

Hidden

behind so many defenses.

That vulnerable little angel.

That precious beauty.

That one you barely remember.

You, yes, you.

So protected that you can’t

remember who you are………….

Just stop.

Take the time.

Do the work.

When you break through all YOUR walls,

and knock down all your defenses,

you will really find

that happy little you,

and God.

You see,

 He is in there too,

with you,

just waiting for you to lay down the fear,

and open the door.

The love you missed.

The love you’ve always looked for is only within.

So just give up the search.

You already are where you need to be.

Look within.

Find you.

The kingdom of God

is within.

Love you………

GOD IS NOT…………….

LIKE THE JOYS OF THIS WORLD

GOD IS NOT…………….

LIKE THE TEMPORARY, EMPTY HAPPINESS WE FIND IN OUR INTERACTIONS

GOD IS NOT…………….

HARSH, CONDEMNING, OR DEMANDING

GOD IS NOT…………….

A LIAR

GOD IS NOT…………….

A LOVE THAT COMES AND GOES

GOD IS NOT…………….

WAITING FOR YOU TO SCREW UP

OR EVEN GET IT RIGHT

GOD IS NOT…………….

LIKE A GROWN UP

GOD IS NOT……………..

LIKE RELIGION OR IT’S LEADERS

GOD IS NOT…………….

OR EVER WILL BE……….

FALLING OUT OF LOVE

WITH HIS CREATION

MY GOD   Leave a comment

I DID NOT MISS YOU TODAY.

UP AT 4 AM AGAIN.

LISTENING INTENTLY FOR THAT BEAUTIFUL VOICE.

NO LONGER LOST,

WITHIN THOSE HARSH JUDGING WALLS,

OF RELIGION.

IT IS BACK BEHIND ME,

LIKE A DISTANT CLANGING NOISE.

NOW,

I AM FREE.

FREE TO KNOW YOU.

TO REALLY KNOW YOU.

YOUR WAY.

NO RULES,

NO LAWS,

NO HARSH JUDGEMENTS

FROM THOSE THAT

PRETEND TO KNOW YOU.

BUILDING  SITTERS!

THANK YOU

FOR LETTING ME JUMP OUT OF THAT WINDOW.

I LOVE YOU,

 MY GOD,

 I LOVE YOU

THE PATH TO GOD   Leave a comment

Looking for God?

Just how difficult do you

expect that seeking to be?

Perhaps,

you could settle

for religion.

The path to God

is too easy.

Just lay down your walls.

Just give up your fight,

and your rights.

Give up your words,

and noise,

and idle chatter.

Just stop!

You see,

He isn’t in a building,

or in your religious

rules,

walls,

or laws.

The kingdom of God,

the reign of God,

the essence of God,

is within

you.

So,

Give up the fight.

Just get quiet.

Be still,

and know that I AM God.

In the stillness within,

is where He is found.

Stillness,

Silence,

Peace………
