One day, when the glory comes
It will be ours, it will be ours

We will be sure, we will be here sure
Oh, glory, glory

O Lord, it’s morning; I’m here,
seeking Your face and guidance;
hear the echoing words of my heart;
they’re not some human contrivance
to guilt You into honoring Your Word;
I know that you’re not a lying Man,
with false, hollow promises that tease.…

Poem: Intellectual Pollution

The shades of gray are nearly infinite-
mirroring attitudes regarding our sin.
Degrees of separation give distinction

visible is God’s Truth and Satan’s lies,
as individuals determine what’s palpable.

Gobs of available data doesn’t translate
into experience and useful wisdom directly.
Real sapience, is shown by the…

Poem: Continue to Be Still

O Lord, it’s morning; I’m here,
seeking Your face and guidance;
hear the echoing words of my heart;
they’re not some human contrivance

to guilt You into honoring Your Word;
I know that you’re not a lying Man,
with false, hollow promises that tease.
Living my life with these empty hands

raised unto You alone, I ache and yearn
for the sound, of Your quiet voice-
that gently soothes my Christian soul.
Despite today’s harshness, I…

Poem: Committed to Him?

When we’re truly betrothed to Him,
we can’t help, but divinely succeed;
Christ’s not a Man that He should lie

found about the land, trees and air?
Are we better clothed than flowers?
Are we committed to Him and His care?

Are we not made after God’s image?
As His Children, are we responsible,
for applying The Word to our lives?
Are we spiritually…

You may or may not agree with Mike Lipkin’s analysis of global trends in the video below but his enthusiasm is infectious.  Alright, it’s a little bit scary sometimes too but mostly his excitement itself is exciting and when you check out what he’s saying objectively a lot of it makes sense whether you like the goats and sheep thing or not. Hope that didn’t sound culturally insensitive.  Apologize if it did.  Here’s the video with Lipkin’s YouTube description below…
