S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo

Poem: Intimacy with God

Not paralyzed with constraints of obligation,
I’m able to converse with my Lord on any topic.
Towards me, His ongoing Love is without reserve;
new mercies flow- with a Grace that is melodic.

Inside each of us, is a God-shaped hole,
which can be satisfied by Him exclusively;
nothing in Life is off-limits with Jehovah,
for He alone examines our hearts and sees

what is invisible to others- inner desires
to drawer closer in relationship with…

Poem: Turned Inwardly?

God’s compassion is directed outwardly,
while self-pity is an ugly form of idolatry.
Abject misery will be guaranteed, when…
you’re centered on the selfish ego of “me”!

If you’re focused on your own misfortunes,
then you’re going to miss out on blessings;
concepts of personal happiness are fleeting;
therefore, realize what makes hearts sing

with an everlasting, unadulterated joy!
Ministering to others creates opportunities
for…

Poem: Untroubled Heart (II)

O Lord, perfect Your sacred Love in me;
show me how to have the proper boldness
for conducting myself humbly each day;
only a covering of Your righteousness

will allow me to enjoy Your new mercies.
Teach me to appreciate Your divine Grace;
please insure that I’m not after Your hands
of blessing, but that I’m seeking Your face.

I’m diligently feasting on Your Holy Word;
sate my spiritual hunger and thirst for You!
You are the Bread…

Poem: The Kingdom of God

What are we really looking to receive?
Is it: Money, Fame, Success, or Promotion?
Secret lusts of the heart create problems;
are we willing to risk, His Salvation?

Living to get things will never satisfy;
without proper priorities and pursuits,
righteousness, peace and joy isn’t obtained.
Knowing your identity in Him, His fruit,

mercy and grace becomes obviously evident.
Seeking His face will insure that His hand
remains open towards…

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…
