Denying God does not destroy Him

My post here is an acceptance of Colleen Chesebro Challenge Tanka Poetry; her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words “Love and Time” Numerous synonyms will be underlined.   To join the fun click here:

 

 

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!

dVerse, poetry

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.

ETERNITY … a dominant reality!

Eternity should be the only DOMINANT REALITY of our life because it is forever. It is whatever exists outside of time.
It is easy to shake your head and say nothing exists but what if you are wrong?

The consequences of being wrong on this account would mean you can’t change your mind once found in eternity. The time given you now is your opportunity to think about eternity.
Just to give you an idea of how long eternity is, let me share this little analogy from my childhood memory.

Imagine a tiny bird that dwells up high in the heavens above; it flies down to earth every 100 years just to take one sip of the waters contained on earth. Consider all the oceans, rivers, lakes and streams throughout. The bird only takes one little sip and flies back to its place in the celestial abode to await the passing of another 100 years for its return to drink again from earth waters. Chances are it will never finish drinking the entirety of water, but imagine it did! The bird took the very last drop. Imagine this scenario, and believe too that eternity would only be beginning.
ETERNITY should be your only DOMINANT REALITY because it just might be the reality of your existence. ETERNITY … a dominant reality.
