Entering The Door !

We can stand outside the door , and never enter in to the best that is being offered , so I encourage you , step inside !

YOU have Shone A Light .

O Lord - how many times have I stood outside- shivering
In the cold and dark - where - instead of looking through the window
I am just leaning on the frame - examining the structure of the woodwork
When I should be looking through the pane -
Where You have shone a spotlight - on a gnarled
And weathered - wooden Cross -
Which fills my heart with trepidation - at its
Thoughts of guilt - and shame - and loss .

But - What is this ? I feel a Presence drawing me - to enter
Through this Door - and lay aside my heavy burdens
And to carry them no more.
To receive a spotless garment - and be given a new name -
Accepted and Beloved - and no longer - Guilt and Shame .

I feel a welcome - from an outstretched arm - that bids me
Enter in - to partake of all the riches - and adventures -
That are waiting to begin - with new challenges and wonders -
Such as my eyes have never seen
With laughter - love - and happiness - of which
I have never known .

Now - my Father - my Creator - help me always do my best
With the gifts that You have bestowed on me - so that
Your Heart will be blessed - and thank You - for all
That You have done - and are yet to bring me through -
And may the Honour - and the Glory
Always - go to - YOU .

Face To Face .

Lord - we are reminded of Your goodness -
When we look into the wonders of Your world .
A world - made for Your glory - to show
How great You are.
Each Season - a reflection of Your Loving heart .
Each change - a declaration of Your power .
Nothing too big or small - but that it speaks
Of Your great Craftsmanship.
And yet - in all this majestic show
You tell us - that we are Your greatest work .
The apple of Your eye - unique - and each
One made in Your own image.
God - how marvelous You must look.

Continue Lord - to work in us - so that
We truly will reflect Your glory in the earth .
Until - one by one - or together - we will see You
Our Creator God -
Face to Face .


I pray all who read these words will enter into all that
God has prepared for them .


Door, Enter Key, Looking, Windows

I remember the words, we look in the glass darkly, but one day; will be looking face to face.
