So Close To Death

Updated on August 25, 2015

So Close To Death

Death is blowing on you,

Leaving its' ashes & smolder

All in a twist,

You blow a kiss to death

To your own death,

Is your chosen march

The death you praise,

It really has no end

But you keep saying,

Let me die, let me die

Tormented and flogged,

By the evils in this world

In a whirl,

That's so strong & relentless

Crawling and screaming,

Down on the cold floor

Saying I hate this mess,

While clinging to it

Wake up, wake up,

Get out of your tomb

Time is ticking,

Tick-tock, tick-tock

Love is whispering your name,

An unknown voice, you run in vain

Not knowing love,

But longing for it

And once again, you hear that Voice

Gentely saying--

Uncover your eyes,

you will be surprised

I have loved you all along,

Let me fix your song

I am the Musician of love,

I will fill you with grace

you can celebrate life,

Singing with joy

You can Leave that bad dream,

With a new vision in sight

You see now, this was right,

though you had to put up a fight

No more searching for the light,

For I have made you, a shining light

Where The Light Is Found

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.> Is 9:2

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light.> Matt 6:22

But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!> Matt 6:23

"I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles,> Is 42:6

Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.Is 50:10

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.> Is 42:16

The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.> Ps 19:8

[Of David.] The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid>Ps 27:1

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.> Ps 36:9

Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell> Ps 43:3

For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.> Ps 56:13 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.> Ps 119:105

See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.> Luke 11:35

[The Validity of Jesus' Testimony] When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."> John 8:12

Loved and forgiven

Freedom, love, a real life!

John 3:17 “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” God’s plan is not to condemn anybody. Rather, “In love, he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will- to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves” Ephesians 1:5-6. He wants us to become his children & enjoy freedom in Christ.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," delares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity."Jer 29:11-14a

Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living. Ps 116:7-9

If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.-John 15;19

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.Roman10:9-10

(Ask God to also fill you with his Holy Spirit in Jesus name.)

      Jesus second coming draws near and as I wait I will be busy learning from God and working for God.

      If we would all partake of the spirit of God through believing on His Son Jesus Christ- That Jesus died for us and was resurrected from the grave defeating sin and death for all that will accept this free gift.

      Now this is truly where living and healing begin.

      Jesus The only one that can save us.

      Anything of the contrary would lead us astray from the one true living God.

      Thank you Misty95 for your comment!

      God bless you!
