Short, Profound, Powerful, ... and TRUE:

In fact, this one is so powerful, it's worth memorizing . . .


"If someone wants to follow Me, they must give up the things they want.
They must even be willing to give up their lives to follow Me. ~ Mark 8:34

On one side stands the crowd.
Jeering. Baiting. Demanding.
On the other side stands a peasant.
Swollen lips. Lumpy eye. Lofty promise.

One promises acceptance, ... the other: a cross.
One offers flesh and flash, ... the other offers faith and trials and triumph.

The crowd challenges, "Follow us and fit in."
JESUS promises, "Follow Me and stand out."

They promise to please. GOD promises to save.
GOD looks at you and asks, "Which will be your choice?" ?

~ from "A Gentle Thunder." ~ GRACE FOR THE MOMENT, pg.351.

Time & toil & trouble & testing…
yet Life is exuberant, brimming !
with joy! and wonder! . . .
but where? why? & how? did this darkness descend
like a cloud and a claw in the soul.

somewhere in Time, … near the beginning of Time…
back, back, back where the seed first sprang forth:
we all fell for the greatest and most insidious of lies:
"turn away from The Creator! …
and be your own god ." !
THERE was Light & Love betrayed
and Man covered with a cold & lonely darkness
of his own making.

Light Is Love
with freewill
willing to both understand
and obey
the invariable boundaries
of moral choice.
you are not, …
we are not GOD.
we are His guests & creation.
we are not robots, …
but we must not be rebels
who defy & defile.
Choose wisely:
Choose very wisely
you will serve.


Shalom and God bless !
