Let your Yes be Yes

Let your Yes be Yes

Conviction of beliefs
Stand erect and sure,
A skyscraper of Faith
So let your yes be yes
Before all you encounter
And walk in integrity
With Joyful exuberance,
Whether acknowledged or not
For every yes to be yes
Draws the heartstrings closer
Unto the Heart of the Father
Who declares Yes and Amen
To every part of you~
Yes, let your yes be yes
And do not falter
For in your strength
Through the Lord of Lords
You shall witness breakthrough
Beyond any ever seen before.

blank paged Journal

blank paged Journal

Flip on through
The blank paged Journal
And allow the stories,
The artistry and rhythms
To come to life
Right before your eyes,
A tapestry woven
By the breath of Grace
Through hieroglyphs
And common scripts
Onward to space-aged inkblots~
A blank paged Journal
Rests to devour
The ink in our veins
To tell the stories
For which we cultivate
In our day-to-day lives,
So listen close to the whisper
And gaze upon the screen
Where my story and your story
Intersect and weave together,
A beautiful motion-picture
Never seen or known before.

Two Become One

Two Become One

Alone, afraid,
Troubles all around
One hides deeper still
Unsure of the path to take,
But a Pursuer beckons
For He Never gives up
On the ones He Loves~
So when one in fear
Bows before Him
And accepts His Love
Their lives merge
For Two Become One
When the Light of the Son
Shines and Enters upon the broken
To mend and make them whole
For Yeshua, the Christ,
Died and rose again
In power, Truth and Love
to save all who come to Him
And by their death to flesh and fear
They rise again
In Him, the Christ,
The Hope of Glory,
Now inside each one of His Beloveds.

Dive Into Freshness

Dive Into Freshness

Putrid. Rank.
Horrible smells all around
And the dawn of horror
To find they emanate
From one’s self,
‘Goodness, what shall I do?’
Dive into Freshness,
Into the Joy of Abba’s Yes,
‘Yes!’ He declares for You
For your heart,
For your life and story,
Yes to your dreams, desires~
Oh the dive can be difficult,
But the baggage you carry,
Yours and others, stands heavy,
Smells awful even
And the time tolls for you,
Yes even you,
To Dive into Freshness,
The Freshness of Grace,
Of Love and Acceptance by YHWH,
Of Mercy and Light by Yeshua,
Of the Holy Ghost Fruit
Dive into Freshness
And all the putrid smells will fade.

A Presence Unknown

A Presence Unknown

Senses closed and hidden
Awaken to a Presence Unknown
Along the journeys of life
To begin to witness
Things never experienced before~
Zoom through space
A light-year at a time;
Dragons and griffins spiritual
And set about in battle formation;
Body parts, new and shine, all around
Ready for their owners;
Angels of every kind
Up and down the ladder;
Gems and stones more precious
Than the largest Diamond mine;
Oh the senses alive,
Synapses fire wild
To a Presence Unknown
And through the process
Knowledge grows
To come face-to-face
With Love, Precious Love,
For the Presence Knows you
While you begin to know Him,
The Divine Creator, El Elyon.

Open Walls

Open Walls

For far too long we have spent time
Behind four walls, or more,
Sometimes conscious,
Others sub-conscious
And we close the doors
Not to them, but to ourselves
To our own hearts
With judgments and fears
Unfounded in Grace~
Oh Open Walls must exist
For the Fullness of Love
To awaken and rise,
The keys to the Kingdom
Belong to His Beloved
And we hold the means
To set everyone Free,
So stand brothers and sisters
Walk to the rim
And open the walls
With vulnerable Love and Truth~
Now dance in the streets,
A royal rumble of Joy
To draw the broken
Even closer to our Father
For we cannot hide behind our walls,
We must open the walls of our hearts
And let them into Grace.

Throne of Grace

Throne of Grace

Armies of Darkness ooze all around
To slander any man or woman
With wrongs, guilt and shame,
A slippery slope to some
And hatred of self rises
The key to disengage Abba’s children~
Oh but warriors of Light
Appear and reappear to embolden
The Kings and Queens of the Kingdom
His Sons and Daughters once lost,
Now found, found in Love
For at the Throne of Grace
Stands before Heaven’s hosts
The Savior of us all
With a record book bought with a price,
His blood, the blood of Righteousness,
And His voice rings out,
True and strong,
“Abba, they stand forgiven!
Every last one of them
For the Record book holds no records
Of any evil of your Beloved Ones~
Grant them entry to your Throne of Grace
And Light and Love shall shine,
To drive back the fiends of darkness,
To release the damned and captives
Forever and ever,
For all the world to witness.”
Yes at the Throne of Grace
Love sits hand-in-hand,
A tempest of Light spoken once, echoes
Echoes into all of eternity,
The Eons of Life
Draw His children to Him
And in Triumphant Glee
They dance with Heaven
At the Throne of Grace.

Rooted Streams

Rooted Streams

Streams wind their way
Through field, forest and plain
And along their banks
Stand sentinels of life
For the rooted trees
Of every kind~
Oak, willow, Pine, cypress
More and more you imagine~
Stand tall in the sun
With systems spread out below
To soak up the moisture
Deep in the soil,
And some even into streams themselves
With creatures in their branches,
Birds of the air,
Insects and bugs too,
Even squirrels round and round they run~
Yes Rooted Streams
Through field, forest and plain
Enliven the trees firm beside them,
Sentinels of Life
To breathe the air
And give fragrance
To the Joys of Faith.

Vulnerability Exposed

Vulnerability Exposed

Honesty of the heart,
The mind, the soul,
To lay all bare
Before all the world
Our flaws and failures,
Not to hide them in darkness
But to allow Light to shine
On the deepest parts of us~
Vulnerability Exposed
A headline of headlines
On the depths of Truth
When men and women
Step forward in Trust
To tear open their chests
And let all the world to hear~
The brokenness, shame, guilt
Of decisions past and present,
Even in the line of fire
No bulletproof vests
And the people share their stories
Some will look on in disbelief,
But the vast majority sigh relief,
“Not just me, I’m not alone”~
Yes Vulnerability Exposed
Where all stand together
Chests open to their hearts
And together in unity
The Light and Love begins to heal
Every single one of us.

Kingdom of Love

Kingdom of Love

I walk and I walk,
door-to-door at times,
miles upon miles
to share my heart above all,
to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ
some note and others
the Kingdom of God~
I say one in the same,
the Kingdom of Love
for Jesus, Yeshua
in the original language,
expressed YHWH’s heart
in the perfect ways~
with the Spirit of the Lord
upon Him and anointed
to declare the gospel,
the forgiveness of sins,
to heal the brokenhearted,
to set the captives free
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to proclaim the acceptable
year of the Lord
and express no separation
between Him and us~
Oh the Kingdom of Love
for you and for me
stands to help all in need
and declare Love
to every tribe, tongue and nation
for the God of Angel Armies
desires every one of them.

Go With Your Heart

Go With Your Heart

(for Sunshine)

Ten months together
Nine more until our day
And every day I find
New ways, treasures
To love you,
To cherish you,
To adore you Bride-to-be~
When I ask for words
The response rings out,
“Go With Your Heart,”
And so my Sunshine
I gaze upon you with wonder
Upon your Beauty and strength,
The depths of You
 I know I will love
When I encounter every one
And not a day shall pass
Without my smile towards you
For you complete me a thousand times~
“Go With Your Heart” breathed
And my insides leap for Joy
For I get to Go with You,
My Sunshine, my Heart.

Legends Exist

Legends Exist

(for Mista Bill Vessier)

A heart of gold
With warm smiles,
Grand stories,
And the best laughter
To love on everyone encountered
From the youngest ones
To the aged veterans~
Legends Exist
Within the legacy
Of a man of God
Who gives his live
For the least of them all
For to him they stay
The most important,
So Legends Exist
In the travels and stories
Of a son of God~
Everyone encouraged
In years upon years
Stand with a mark on their hearts,
A Golden Etch
“I met Spivey in my lifetime
And walked away a different person.”

With a Pure Flame

With a Pure Flame

(for Justin Marshall)

Forty-Five Degrees
Angled towards Heaven
Just in case one needs
A download beyond words
And the frequencies tune
Into the Father’s heart
For all the ones His son
Comes to love and care about,
Whether at home or overseas,
His son’s compassion
Makes the King of Kings smile~
A greater depth propels
The adventurous soul forward
Into darkness and more darkness
To Light up the nights
With a Pure Flame
And shine evermore
To draw more of Abba’s kids
Unto His Presence~
Again and again
With a Pure Flame
A son sets the world on fire.

Algorithm Blues

Algorithm Blues

Lists upon lists
All around us
To categorize
Every aspect of life,
An orange in a recipe
To butterfly circles
All to sort through~
Algorithm Blues
When inundated with info
Beyond what we could imagine
And lists off-the-wall
With unicorns and banshees,
Centaurs and werewolves
To bones healed in valleys
To no-breath bodies
Breathe again,
A supernatural move
When our minds marvel
At the unexplainable
And Algorithm Blues,
Our inner dialogue
Wanders in amazement
Of all possible in the world.

Mention Me

Mention Me

Round and Round we go
Through trial and tribulation,
Multiple storms
Confusion and fear wish
To overwhelm,
But Mention Me
My Name above every Name
And they cannot stay,
They will flee,
So Mention Me
On the calm seas
And on the tempests
For no matter what
Peace rests in the release
Of who I Am~
I Am the Breath
Of the ocean waves,
The depth and width
Of any and all passages
Into Truth and righteousness~
Mention Me
And watch mountains move
For you, my Friend.

Etch-A-Sketch Me

Etch-A-Sketch Me

Etch-A-Sketch Me
Into your sands
One line at a time
In thirty seconds flat
Speed not the issue
For your Precision hits home
And I come alive,
A still-motion short
On our Earth today
Even for a hundred plus years~
A momentary breath to you,
And yet every line, contour,
Yes every detail of who I am
Rests in your Creativity
To Create me, your son
In the sands of time,
An hourglass roundabout
While I draw you in
Yah-Weh~
Breathe in, Breathe out,
You, me, both of us
One, forevermore
With breath in my lungs
On our Etch-A-Sketch playland.

Butterfly Fly By

Butterfly Fly By

One step before the other,
Hot, sweaty
In summer heat
To take care of the body
And on the walk back
A Butterfly Fly By
Draws the eye
With Grace in mind
On the hallows of life~
The ethos of Possibility
For a caterpillar waits
Inside a cocoon,
Then the time hits right
And in the struggle
Strength gained
For a Butterfly to Fly
By the depths of Creation
To wing around,
A breath of fresh air
On the winds of change.

Spoken Spokes

Spoken Spokes

Spoken Spokes
Round and round
In every direction
Of circular knowledge
Lost in the day-to-day
Where communication fades
Broken and flat,
And yet…
And yet not all lost
For vulnerability key
To unlock hearts and minds
Hardened by hate,
So let go and listen close
For Spoken Spokes
Draw each of us
To the center of all
And allow us to witness
The Beauty of unity.

Blanket Creases

Blanket Creases

Statements far and wide
About people, incidents
Blanket populations
To leave creases behind
And hearts hurt
From the pain arches
In the stories untold
Along media’s rampage~
Division of us all
Us vs them
Or others vs us
Never an and/both
And hearts weep inside
For the destruction left behind~
Oh but Love resounds,
Blanket Creases folded out
For Hope and Joy to run the gauntlet
To align hearts anew,
A purpose to unity
And Abba’s breath
Heals the wounds for good.

One Human Race

One Human Race

 
One Human Race
    7 billion plus of humanity
Kingdom~Animalia
     Phylum~Chordata
   All mammals, primates
          Family~Hominidae
     And we all bleed red,
          You and I, skin sliced
         The plasma of our lives
               Dribbles away
            One drop at a time,
         Yet we throw our words side to side,
       A knife to divide us all
               From labels of hatred
                    To preconceived notions
               Of who another exists to be~
          One Human Race
               Genus~Homo
                    Species~Sapiens
          Yes, Homo Sapiens
               You and I, not You or I
             For we all stand interwoven together,
                  A woven tapestry piece by piece
               With our uniqueness,
                    Our differences
          Ready to shine no matter what~
               So stop the hemorrhage
                    Before we all bleed out
          And all 7 billion of us fall
               For we must come together,
                    Unified in Truth
               To give Life and Love
                   A Passionate river to flow by~
     One Human Race    
          You and I no matter our pigment
               Will always stay Homo Sapiens
             Yesterday, today, tomorrow
          Even within our messy lives
               For Joy resounds louder and louder
             The Echo in our veins.

Flight Mechanics

Flight Mechanics

(for me)

Birds learn the hard way
 A shove out the tree,
Out of the nest
To spread their wings
And gain the knowledge
To fly, to soar~
The Flight Mechanics
Of wing propulsion
With the wind through the feathers
And the tail to turn
In the right way
To left, right, up or down,
Then seconds before they know
Updrafts kick in and they soar
High into the sky
Over trees and walls,
Through storm after storm
And though they may need rest
From time to time
The whole world opens up
For their Freedom beckons~
The Flight Mechanics, son
Stands built into your soul,
So open up and fly
Freedom awaits!

Yes You Can

Yes You Can

(for Dianemarie Encarnacion)

Questions abound
On dreams, desires,
Possibilities and paths to go
And the whisper mounts
For Abba declares,
“Yes You Can!
My Daughter, Yes,
You can do all your heart desires
And much more,
Maybe not all at once,
But one step at a time
One moment to the next
Even if multiple dreams
Stay worked on
All in my timeline
For Fruition abundant
In the course you go!
I trust you Princess
Yes You Can!”
The winds stir up
And a Daughter rises
In fierce determination.

Infinite Ideas

Infinite Ideas

(for Robert Cooley)

No shame in the game
For a man, a son
To hold Infinite Ideas
For the Kingdom of God
Share some, hold others,
Write all down,
The days will hit right
For each idea’s fruition
By you or others called upon~
The rhythm of depths unknown
To tunes never heard
Dances into reality
In Bold, fresh ways
For Infinite Ideas
From Intimacy with YHWH
Gather the flock together
On paths never explored before,
So share some, hold others,
Write all down
And in the appointed hours
All shall stand revealed.

Colossal

Colossal

(for Becky Cooley)

Some say to dream BIG
Bigger even
For the whole universe
To witness the magic
Of fulfilled dreams,
Yet when already done
What next?
Where to now?
Well go Colossal!
Dream with such magnitude
Everest declares,
“Wow! I thought I stood tall!
Not compared to her!”
And the epic stories move over
To allow a new classic
Of a heroine
Of such proportion
The pages weep with gratitude
To hold such a story,
So Dream Colossal
Beyond anything ever seen.

Light Speed Ahead

Light Speed Ahead

(for Sarah Knapp)

Far too long behind closed doors
Hidden away from all
Full of confusion and fear,
But NO more Daughter
For the King redeems
Again and again~
The shackles fall off,
The doors stand open
Move Princess
Light Speed Ahead
Onto Full Freedom
In every way,
In every detail~
You stand resurrected
In Him, Yeshua
And His Love shines
Evermore through you.
