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

Security

am I really
your ALL?
the only One you
rely upon?
your only Security?
or do you
look to Me
only when
you have to?
security
you seek it
long for it
plan for it
count on it
the world-that which is
under the control of
the evil one-
the deceiver-
tells you to
look for it in
money
possessions
success
reputation
health
other people even
"spiritual" things that
take My place
sometimes you
hedge your heart
often inadvertantly
looking for the
comfortable or
familiar
safe and
without risk
relying on your
competencies and
not My Grace
but all these are like
shifting sands
stable one day
gone the next so
I will not leave you in
your deception nor
let you stay in your
less than
whole-hearted
surrender to Me because
I desire to give
more of Myself to you so
whatever is not
centered in Me
whatever directs you into
self-sufficiency- the path
leading to the Pride of Life-
I remove
sometimes slowly
other times expeditiously
but always purposely for
Holiness is My plan for you
a Life beyond your abilities
reached only through
trials of faith
purifications from
your nature's
proclivities of idolotry that
lead you into darkness
there is only one Goal
everything leads you
either toward or away from
attaining- to
know and love Me above all
now and forever so
set your heart on Me
keep your eyes upon Me
cling to Me in Love
as I uphold you and
do not wonder at the
firery ordeals that
enflame your life for
they are the
Fires of My Love
purifying and
forming you into
My Image and
Likeness
