Your Epiphany Don’t Miss It!

Below please read my very first Sonnet poem composed and response to dVerse Poets. The beginning of a New Year and an opening of dVerse Poets who will be creating a new book with samples of poetry in the form of prompts to bloggers. My Sonnet Rhyme scheme:
ABAB // CDCD // EFEF // GG

An Epiphany every day to share
something to live for — a rewarding gain.
Personal lightning bolts, some call prayer!
Very easy for your genius to train.

Your friend — SILENCE helps complete the design,
your enemy — unwanted DISTRACTION.
Ability to relax perfect sign,
unwind; now ebb, reach to satisfaction.

Now place yourself in the presence of God!
Listen gingerly that song of quiet,
refusing to become a lightning rod.
Grow near supernatural reliant.

Awaiting peace of soul we hunger for
Since the Voice of God, Silence, not ignored.

Shape Poetry and Challenge

Those taking their precious time to read my blog today (I thank you) I must confess this writing was quite complex and quite a test while I am very much in the learning process of composing poetry.
Searching and with good fortune found this particular but exciting format on shadowpoetry.com. A form invented by Christina R Jussaume and titled it — “The Christ-in-a-Rhyme,” a shape poem of the spiritual nature.

This poetry, when completed consists of five 3-lined stanzas that must rhyme; with a syllable count of each stanza, is as follows:
Stanza 1 – 8 syllables
Stanza 2 – 14 syllables
Stanza 3 – 7 syllables
Stanza 4 and 5 – 5 syllables.
The poem should be centered to show the cross that is created.

Below is my humble attempt, I hope you enjoy it and will try writing one today, yourself. Your challenge from me!

 

Empty ourselves God will fill us.
Peace of soul true happiness plus,
nevermore will there be mistrust!

Recall Saint John “The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.”
We were born to live — Christ born to die — charged as treasonous.
Christ gives, without taking back — His passion love with surplus.

Jesus hangs for all to see,
suffering — to set us free
until our eternity.

Stop — and don’t delay
admit deeds today …
failures on our way.

Shame on behavior.
Precious blood to pour.
— Truly a savior —

Why does the unbeliever even care …

If we BELIEVE!

Poetry

Recently a discussion developed with my last post which is the inspiration of this post below:

“Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
God’s realm is His Kingdom where His will is done; it is I believe, eternity, a supernatural dimension absent of time and always present without ever beginning.

As long as we are living here on earth, we have time; we can make decisions and choose our next move. We reason with our God-given conscience convincing us to make the correct choice. When we make the wrong choice innocence suffers from the guilty and negativity comes into the world.
Think about your own life and see your loved ones who have suffered because of your choice, it happens to all of us; we make mistakes in judgment. Back in the day, there was a song that went like this; “We always hurt the ones we love, the ones we shouldn’t hurt at all.” Certainly food for thought!
When our time is up, and we breathe our last breath, our will is fixed forever; we can not change if after that fact. If we pass away into eternity, not wanting God, He gives us our desire.

The atheist like to say, your God is terrible, He sends negativity into the world, they fail to see because of Pride, that when one wakes up and finds they are blind, it is because they plucked out their eyes of their own will.

It is God’s will that we here on earth; as in heaven, His will be done! While on earth He offers us time to reason what His will is. To pray, the power of prayer is genuine power, ask, and you shall receive. If you don’t ask, you will not receive. Pride is the downfall of many in this regard.

It is His will that all are saved, but as the Bible states; “How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!” Matthew 7; 14.

Just Because, Supernatural Reality

Who Created God?

He always was, is the answer.

That boggles my mind, however when we consider that God has not ever existed in what we know as “Time,” because in fact, God caused “Time.” He brought it into existence before doing so, “Time” did not exist.
Time is described by words such as movement, change, motion.
Outside of “Time” is deathlessness, infiniteness, perpetuity.

Since we living humans have only experienced living in “Time,” it is difficult or impossible for most of us even to imagine living without “Time” when considering that God always was it seems like a fairy tale. When He created “Time” that was THE BEGINNING! God had to exist to cause this rhythm a cycle of rotation (movement). He existed before that period outside of “Time.” He existed in timelessness, infiniteness where there was NO BEGINNING; therefore HE ALWAYS WAS!
I am not a scientist just an everyday person of faith who was inspired to write this post after reading what an atheist had to say about God, who always was. On thinking through the eyes of an atheist, it takes more faith on their part to deny God than to believe in God when one considers the wonders of the world.

Of course, now that God has created “Time” the Catholic way is to believe not only does He live in eternity, but He dwells with us in Time and Eternity.
I end with this Tanka Poem that I wrote dwelling yesterday on this very subject.

Without devotion
a season beyond passion,
do not destroy God.
To deny Him we destroy
us — eternity without!

Your New Page in the Book of Life

Day1

 

Imagine today as a new page in a book your journal. No matter what time it is as you read this post, or what day, imagine you are receiving a new page, as the saying goes, “today is the first day in the rest of your life.”
Imagine too, God looking down from His heavenly seat identifies actions such as birth or abortion.
He sees good reflections and evil plots.
He sees our sorrows for the above, and He notices the satisfaction.
He sees what pleases the Divine Majesty, described as the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost also; He recognizes our thoughts, words, and deeds that offend and disappoint.
This new page we have is a second chance to examine our conscience.
Pray for the Truth, pray to love the Truth and to recognize, beg for this Truth, your eternity depends on it.

“And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:” [2 Thessalonians 2:10]

Ask yourself, how can there be so many different TRUTHS.
Ask yourself what the purpose of my life is, to Know, Love and Serve God in this life.

Basic catechism, remember learning that!
