4 Steps of Gods’ Will

How do I get to heaven
A thought we contemplate
Jesus has the answer
Pass through the narrow gate

Following God’s will
Four steps to employ
Find it and to do it
Keep it and enjoy!

Find it in the scriptures
Wise people and in prayer
In life’s circumstances
The voice of Spirit, hear

It’s not enough to hear it
For we must do it to
Love, and peace and mercy
To His Word to be true

We must be disciplined
In our faith of growing
To be disciplined
Jesus be our knowing

Staying of the course
Of good news to share
Hope and joy to spread
To bring heaven here

(based upon a sermon by Fr. Colin)

Let Heaven Flow

I’ve been apprehensive
Tentative, you know
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Fearfulness defines me
Time to let that go
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Lukewarm is my faith
Oh Spirit, let it grow
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Stingy is my love
Through heart overflow
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Little is my praise
Stoke the fires glow
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Jerusalem and Gehenna

Inside Jerusalem
A place of heaven be
Alignment with our God
One of security

Outside Jerusalem
The place of lonely shame
A stench of burning dump
Gehenna is its name

Blessed a choice of dwelling
Desires cast our lead
Treasures of our God
Or worldly to concede

Inside heavens walls
Of love, forgiveness, grace
Or outside into fear
Of selfishness we chase

In this days passing time
Of this life we roam
Let us choose the inner
Make heaven now our home

Time of Our Life

The time for choosing
Is in this life now
A choice of eternal
A gift God endows

Not only is this “time”
A choosing of our call
But it’s the only “time”
There will be at all

For “time” will be no more
After this life, be
As we understand it
Just sequentially

A very different “time”
From what we understand
Our “eternity” sealed
At time of death we land

Heavens Return

Light is outpouring
Pure, into this day
Dwelling within
Let us now pray

Trees share a shadow
Blue sky above
Easy the being
In Your perfect love

Air fresh and clean
Lungs of the filling
Welcoming Spirit
Peace of instilling

Bird song surrounding
Sweet is their song
A pause with silence
In one we belong

Store in the soul
To this beauty turn
When within heaven
To this moment return

Within Heaven’s View

Each moment’s a poem
One of beauty
When viewing through soul
With You just to be

Attuning the senses
Let go of control
Breathing all in
Feeding the soul

Gift of the now
Receiving, accepting
Perfect right here
Of grateful connecting

All is complete
Aligned with you
Each plays a part
Within heavens view

Glimpses of Heaven

Sometimes in refection
It’s a blessing true
Glimpses of heaven
When we see Gods view

When we lived a moment
We didn’t understand
But of greater picture
Masterful the plan

How wonderful the day
When will truly see
Our entire life
A way of true beauty

Seen within the light
Of selfishness denied
Our simple acts of love
Our Lord magnified

Rejoicing in His grace
Of our soul affecting
Growing in lived faith
Wisdom we’re collecting
