The Way Home

from light to dark
from light to dark

Jesus triumphed

in solitude, the lonely place

renewing death

death no longer an the end, a punishment

death is birth, new life

death is a passageway, a journey to life

to Jesus

to God – my Father

death is the way home

my death starts at creation, at birth

entering in the sphere of death

the route i must travel

but – no fear

death is no longer to be feared

Jesus conquered fear, removed punishment

traveled the way of death, cleared the way shrouded in darkness

death a pathway of light, the light of the Son of God

Jesus made the path in the darkness, lit the way, to be embraced

joyfully anticipating the destination

the destination of home

no shorter way, no short cut or way around

death must be traveled

from creation to arrival, it is my journey

only in the light

can i see my way

have a hope

have a joy

only in Jesus

safe from the deceiver

the deceiver of darkness

only in Jesus

am i safe

kept from the siren calls of the dark-one

only in Jesus,

only in death

am i safe

secure, death is my way, my protection

till i come home

stay on the path

provided by God

the path of death

crucified with Jesus, the defeater of fear, defeater of death

be reborn, thru death to life

when i leave the path

i fall




when i attempt to

make my own life – my own path – my own destiny,

i die -- forever

one path, one way

the way of death finds true, eternal life

kept from those who seek to keep their own way,

their own life,

their own “I”

“I” must die

so i can go home

A path to life
A path to life
City of God
City of God
Go Home
Go Home
To Jesus
To Jesus

death the servant of Jesus

the way to full life

death my way, my journey

follow deaths path to life, to Jesus

learn to see, to follow, to the end


i will come over the rise

there in all glory

the City of God


my Father, my Brother

my God, my King



will i try to make life or embrace death

will i let my “I” die decrease so Jesus can increase

will i be nothing so He can be everything


the great “I AM”

took death, conquered it

so i could go home


i have strayed

forgive me

i tried to forge my own way, my own path

forgive me

for from Your way, despising it

forgive me

i did not want to die

i did not want to be less

i did not want to live thru You,

forgive me

Your way is the only way

Jesus i ask

please receive me,

into Your way,

into Your death,

into Yourself.

Thankyou Ulrike Grace for those very encouraging words. We need reminding by other believers that death has no power over us and not to be feared. We are so blessed (blessed assurance) of what God has for us after death.

Praise His holy name!

Oh Amen rls, death is a friend to be embraced as we go through the trials of this world. A gift of God so that the things of this world will no longer touch us. We died WITH Jesus and we have been raised WITH Jesus and are seated with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 1). How blessed we are indeed.

Thank you for your faithfulness in reading my hubs, amy you be blessed with a greater awareness of God's blessing and love in your life.

Pollyannalana...Amen is never as it seems and only with the help and discernment of the Holy Spirit will we ever be able to make any sense out of it. He is so glorious to bring us life in our very death. It seriously messes with my mind...bless you, thanks for reading...Ulrike Grace

Thank you WannaB Writer...It is still an amazement to me...God's ways are NOT our ways and when He lets us see as He sees...well there are hardly words for it. Blesings to you, thanks for reading! Ulrike Grace
