REBIRTH really is PURIFICATION

Inspired by the word prompt of The Daily Spur, and Open Night of dVerse.

 

PURIFICATION —Just because you don’t believe, doesn’t mean it isn’t so! God does exist, and we will all stand before Him. Never gamble with eternity, it is forever!

Consider your life, is your conscience purified, satisfied that when you stand before the merciful judge, all is right. God gives us time to do His Will.

Confession is good for the soul, seek out a Traditional priest and talk to him. You don’t believe in confessing to another, but then why go to a therapist, counselor, or a best friend to confess your guilt. They can listen but have no power to wash your soul. Only a duly ordained priest can do that in the name of Jesus. “Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.” [John 20:23]

It is a great feeling to be disinfected, purged from guilt, free and filled with His grace; absolution is there for the taking. Confession is an excellent gift from God, and it is FREE. No therapist fees. Try it you will love it! Purification!

My Confession in Haibun Poetry

dVerse is asking for a poem about one or all of the 7 Vices or Virtues and how our life has been affected. Do we see a complementary function between vice and virtue? Is there one, in particular, that has played a crucial role in your giving into temptation? Or one that has provided a valuable lesson?

My Confession of Time

Confession begins while pleading guilty of all, Pride, always the root. Yes, with each passing day the realization of “looking back” has already started, it is Pride, greatest enemy of my life! I demand, could this be the reason why I have been asking for humility lately? You see today I am older than yesterday, and growing old is a gift. TIME!
Understanding the use of this gift is to arrive at my eternity. To correct a sinful life, while that “stranger” the conscience is always nagging, “pray” it warns, for spiritual wisdom to know my sins and be sorry for them … why do I wonder?

Recognizing time —
a reality of Life.
Vice, Virtue our choice.
Eternity always there
on the mind ever-present.

#Tanka Poetry Challenges

In keeping with the religious theme of my blog.  While taking up the challenge of the two prompt words this week “Green” and “Patience” using their SYNONYMS ONLY; it was so much fun I decided to post not one but two Tanka poems for this week of Colleen’s challenge.  My prompt words camouflaged with their synonyms are Italicized.

#Tanka NUMBER ONE
Bliss

Rivers of sweet tea
Cotten Candy yielding clouds
God’s Will to share this
Lollypop bliss flourishing!
Unicorns winking at me

 

 

#Tanka NUMBER TWO

Sprouting forgiveness
Missing it – perceived it not
Never offend Him?
Proud soul no humility
Ever woefully wretched

 

BELL
