My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free: genefirn@yahoo.com

The Door

your inmost being-
that which you
protect with
formidable defenses
made impregnable from
years of constructing
all to protect your heart
Created and Loved by Me yet
wounded from within by
sin's original propensities:
-an intellect
darkened by deceit
-a will
weakened by the
blustering menace of pride
-narcissistic proclivities
enthroned as
moral principles
and  from without:by:
-persecution's hatred
-lies of our enemy posturing
as avant-garde dictums/
progressive ideals posing
as culture's only savior-
but your heart-
the core of your identity
the seat of your authority-
has only one entrance
a Golden Door
locked securely with the
Key of Freedom
gripped ever so tightly
to be opened
by the interior handle
its only possibility
a decision to be made
with utmost deliberation for
no one enters
without your invitation
no one is evicted
without your agreement
behold
I stand at the door
and knock
always softly
yet persistently
always inviting
never demanding
always respecting
never disdaining
nor despairing
holding on to the hope
to be invited in to
sup with you
that we may be One
as I have always longed-for
since your inception's desire in
My Father's Heart
to give Myself to you and
you to Me for then
your transformation begins
into a New Creation
the sharing of Our very Nature
the old will have passed
step by step into
Love's triumphant Glory
healing by healing
tenderly being renewed into
Joy's perfect Image
My promise to you
written long ago in
Precious Blood
remains to this day
and so it is now that
I stand and knock
watching and waiting for the
sound of a decisive click
that makes My Heart
leap with anticipation that
Light may enter to
scatter the darkness and
Life to conquer death
Behold
I reveal to you
it is I

Reflection/Discussion:
-What are your formidable defenses?
-How does Original Sin affect you practically?
-How has Jesus knocked on your door?
-Do you believe He waits in hope for you? Why/not?
-How might your life change if you "open the door"?
-What is stopping you from doing so?
