Paper can have great meaning or not

Paper is paper unless meaning given unto HIM ~       ~ ripped or not it is mended by His grace~
Paper is paper unless meaning given unto HIM ~ ~ ripped or not it is mended by His grace~


Heart splitting as paper’s torn,

For how little pain is known,

Left in tears of promises,

Covertly bonds are surely blown.

Silly rips in mindless thought,

See the stain from falling part,

Thinking hard in naked flesh,

A consequence of man-made quest.

Pain is relative to growth,

Emotion will accompany,

Whether shielded by mask,

Brain struggles to wield selfishly.

One that feeds the wrong direction,

Stunted stifled stagnant place,

Fighting midst the lost connection,

Wires frayed and slapping face.

Flesh you whither in the battle,

Breaking under scrutiny,

Seeing clearly in the mirror,

The graveness of this deity.

Idol is as seen within,

Lost inside this introspection,

Giving way to heart connected,

To the pureness of perfection.

Losing hold of living word,

Nearing cliff and unaware,

Surrender to transfiguration,

He will catch the sinners there.

Turning back to Trinity,

Rely upon the three in one,

Let go of futile narcissism,

Grace for sinners has been won.

Expected slip how you have bitten,

As to slither with the snake,

It was finished now forgiven,

No longer guilty of mistakes.


Be blessed by this expectant, yet soft song from Young Oceans, entitled “Come Holy One”:

Hasten now, O loving Lord to us
We’re thirsty
Fill these souls, Spirit, every hour
We need Thee

Come, come Holy One
Come meet us
All, all for Your glory
Lord Jesus

Lead us on, the perfect path O Lord
And may we sin no more
This spotless bride, the Church
Is Yours

I am Yours
Only Yours
We are Yours
Only Yours

      Thanks for stopping in and your sweet comment. As time goes so quickly by I am feeling drawn to praise Him and call others to His glory in a profound way. I am so glad this poem was understood. My heart is breaking for so many lost without Him. Have a blessed and beautiful day.
