Poem: Dissections of My Soul

How will I be perceived, after my passing? Will dissections of my soul be realized from the… poetry I leave behind? Will anyone really care? Can my experiences… be defined separately from Faith’s spiritual Light? Will I be imagined to be a fraud, with regard to the principles of God? By the time I’m...

Poem: Experiential Reality

The waves of new revelation are softly overflowing me, when I’m desiring to see… myself as part of a nation that’s birthed for eternity. Faith allows me to envision my future with His precision, through experiential reality. As my spirit flies and soars, I’m drawn closer to Him; words of His truth, ...

Poem: Atonement

Mankind’s genuine Life is found in the blood, not in the heart, nor in the mind; the guilt of sin leads all to Death. As His blood ran down onto Golgotha’s ground, The Lamb’s atonement was released and in that moment, we were bound to Yahweh by the “Scarlet Thread” of Christ’s Love for us. With Him ...

Poem: Waterfall

O Lord, once again, I have made a conscious decision to set aside… my ego and earthly plans to spend quality time with You; as I strive against the nonsense, troubling my heart, allow your Holy Spirit to cascade as a waterfall upon this flesh, with the freshness of a new dew that joyfully enhances m...

Poem: Unlettered Poet

Although both literary academia and the Biblical scholars have largely ignored my poetry, I’m not worried, nor concerned; it could be an outward indication of their sad, spiritual anemia. In order for Faith to be present, an acceptance of Christ must be evident within one’s life; critics will always...

Poem: Upheld

Knowing that I’m loved by God, it’s easier to dismiss fears; I’m no longer dismayed by the onslaught of troubles; years of doubt are behind me, since it’s clear that I’m upheld… by the righteous hand of Yahweh. My trust is in Him and I rely on His many promises; His Word watered the spiritual seeds,...

Thank you for this Joseph! A very thought-provoking and timely write. (And I also like the Francis Chan quote in your signature! ;-)
Thanks Ron for your comment; hopefully I'll be able to compose other pieces on some his quotes.

Poem: Contact With The Divine

Too many people are fearful, regarding contact with The Divine; they realize that they will be transformed by God, but unrelentingly remain unwilling… to make a commitment to His Kingdom. Being identified as a Christian, grips them with apprehension; the idea of ridicule pierces their soul; wisdom f...

Poem: Unneeded, But Wanted

Yahweh understands the irony surrounding us; though we’re unneeded, but wanted by Him… shows our ignorance; to see Him as He is, would exceed our current level of comprehension. And yet, we have opportunities to truly savor His divine power. When will our pathetic attitudes, towards Him and others c...

Poem: Confirmation Bias

Between circular arguments and confirmation bias, critics debate the fallacies of Faith, themselves unable to connect to Yahweh via the divine spark that has drawn us closer to Him; each individual has been given a unique measure of Faith; yet, desire dictates the development of our personal growth ...
