(I know a little ahaed of time but I thought I'd whip up a poem for my churches newsletter I haven't in a while and one of the gals who works on the newsletter queried me on my lack of input as of late)

 


June. . . 
serenades with the call of the loon  
beneath a festive summer moon
 but whether night time or noon
nature
is God
romancing the human soul
calling us to
spiritual,
emotional communion.
Imagine God
on bended knee
proffering a plee:
"Be free & be with me. . .
why must you lock yourself
in that walled off tower. . . again??!!"

God's Mercy proceeds from 
God's Love,
NOT
The other way around!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



God doesn't love us because he(she) is merciful,
God is merciful because he(she) loves us!

Beware the false prophets


who invite you up onto the tightrope


promising you the net of forgiveness lies beneath you


ready to catch you!


This means they are still inviting you to


the old system!


of trying to earn your salvation


through your own merits


and borrowing the net


of grace


in case


you don't make it!


The metaphysical implications are darker


than you may realize!


It means: "You are not good enough for God


as you are


here's a rule book


if you can keep to it or at least try. . .


God will take pity on your wretched soul!"


The 100% grace way means:"God loves you as is. . .


as you were created. . .


human!"


Which should make you


happy


and grateful


wanting to emulate


that great loving being


and pass it on


pass on the unconditional  love given to you!


Give the love and acceptance


you have received


Be a joy in the heart of God,


not a sorrow


watching you struggle on the tightrope


with white knuckle grip on the rule book


and no


time


energy


or love for others.
