Immovable rock crushing over hope,
Guarded and secured with fear of life.
Secured. Sealed. Succumbed to sin.
But eternal hollows cannot contain eternity
Death shrouds cannot cover over life
Dawns cannot wait to break forth in glory
The sky cannot hold back the maker’s roar of power
The ground cannot restrain his force of beauty
So, hope burst forth and respoke such joy into creation’s song.
And the eternal melody still echoes from that empty tomb,
Verse ricochets, “heaven” th
You slam the ever-open door that you are too slothful to enter.
You evaporate life-water and pour fire on infant embers.
You wear truth so wide you are blind to see; but still lead on.
You ostentatate with purity as your tassels hang from faithless neglect.
You drink sewage, from champagne flutes. Thirsty, you crush the deer.
You crumble to death-bones and rattle in finery of kings.
You murder, to fill the festooned tombs you have built. Self-exalting fallen-fools
Home The place you feel most safe perhaps? For sure the place you feel most trapped. Known for who you grew up to be, But the child you were is all they see. Your own town cannot forget. Your own home cannot accept. Forever the child of your dad and mum. Offended. No faith for who you have become. #christianpoetry #growup #hometownprophet #christian #home #POETRY #reboot #Matthew13 #bible
I will be fully present; fully myself with you; The best and the worst of me is yours. My shiny and my shame. I will receive you fully; only be here. I’ll embrace your best and worst. I will stand and I’ll remain. I’ll rejoice I’ll be As we become family. #SPOKENWORD #christian #creative #POETRY #reboot #Matthew1246 #matthew #WORSHIP #family #becoming #Biblepoetry
You think you know me,
assume my ache
and you pity me, unable.
But I haven’t come
For what you think.
Don’t judge my deepest need. Our hope lifted me,
Shared faith brought me
To him: surrendered; He’s able.
I’ve come for freedom,
For him to meet my need. And he knows me well
Love speaks to me,
Forgiveness for my soul.
And he heals me too,
To prove the point.
But that’s not why I came. #paralysed #christianity #deepestneed #SPOKENWORD #forgivene
Unknowingly, unwantingly run.
‘More-than-just-one’ in two men.
Meet perfect love. Rage, rebellion, ricocheted, riled,
Power destroying, hating, defiled;
They shout out. Know Him without doubt. But will not get out.
The More-than-just-one in two men,
Meet perfect love. Fear swells as they face him, time’s up before him,
Words are spoken, truths are spoken, “Go” is spoken:
That sound unstoppable,
as multitude of deaths defeated; cast
What cost to cross the sea?
To journey to the other side?
To continue to hear and to see and to be?
Reach the distant shores and abide? How much? So much.
All you have been, and are and hope and dream and long.
Everything, to go. But to stay is more. To cease to hear his song.
To remain; too much the cost to refuse the call.
So leave everything now or find in the end that you have nothing at all. The crossing; death. Death of self. Surrounded by tumult and fury and rag
Descending from the mountain of spoken truth
carrying the truth; surrounded.
Every word spoken, now to live.
Not just words;
Life. And to live it – not perform it:
On the journey, to live it- with willingness
In the city, to live it – with authority
In the home, to live it – with compassion. Always willing, always authority, always compassion.
One and one and one and many.
Living truth. #huffadine #SPOKENWORD #christian #creative #matthew8 #andnowto
You think you’re all that. You’re not.
Better than me? You’re not.
You think you’ve done it, made it, won it. You’ve not.
You shove and barge and worm.
You want, you take.
Who do you think you are?
What do you think you’ve got? Broken teeth.
Venom in your blood.
Try to smile your ‘pride smile’ now, my friend.
You should have asked, seeked, knocked. Come, let go of all you got.
Drop it and pass through to life,
Walk in abandon to, life.
Then, see what you’ve got,
Watch the swoop of curve ingathering hope,
See the joy rise of expectant trust.
Then plummet through impossibility to continue climb to truth. Trace the sound forward, higher; glimpsing future,
Circle back claiming history, heritage, inheritance. Rise, become, continue not over stretched; sure.
Settle to the place of peace of certainty; eternity. Look; the word incredible.
See the word indelible.
Speak the word; unshakable.
Hear the word; unbreakable. “yes”. #ltyouryes
