Harmony



Once, it was this way.  A long and beautiful harmony.  That was before.  Then it was a strong and sustained tune. Each unique note heightened by the single movement - never lost within. With one voice praising, with one voice rejoicing, one singular voice. 

Now it is this, now it is fragmented. 

One lovely, singing a new faraway song.
One lonely, left to sing a somber solo. 
One astray, seeking an unfamiliar tune.
One wandering, seeking a song of its own.
Two writing new music for the one coming.
Two steadfast in harmony anew -
Two echo soundly in chorus.
Three finding melodies, each their own.
One quietly keeping tune.
One vibrant soprano soaring to new heights.
One solo, vying to be heard.
One silent.

What once came forth in full harmonious swell, now, is only happenstance -rarely finding a common note. Random chords, like the tuning exercise of a children's band. Squeal and rasp, awkward and disjointed. The lovely harmony broken by space and will, now void of its great and beautiful power. 

Fragments of what once was a rare and lovely piece of great worth...      

One Faithful Conductor - orchestrating, writing a new song...

  2. My sweet, this is... Hauntingly beautiful. Humbly relatable.

    When those precious moments of noise are actually played together on pitch, however momentary, they are a resounding reminder of the beautiful momentary orchestra that they are.

    God tells us to make a joyful noise - He does not say make a beautiful noise. He knows we can't most of the time. Our noise isn't always harmonious and many times is not beautiful, and on occasion is even ear-piercing, but when made with joy, God is honored. A beautiful reminder to focus on the JOY of being able to make noise.
    I love you. I love what comes from your heart on this blog. You make me think, chew, and pray about many things in my life. Keep writing. You are blessing me and so many others.

Gilgal – An unknown heart’s desire fulfilled

Gilgal
– An unknown heart’s desire fulfilled
My response to El Greco’s painting of “Christ on the Cross” circa 1600
You’ve haunted me since early youth captured, yet not knowing why. The agony was clear to see “languish” is the word that comes yet understanding escaped me and yet I still was drawn.
For years the image would come and then go. For years I’d ponder with sorrow For years I’d long to see you again And yet still not knowing why.
A fortnight passed and world away and I knew before I turned Your presence beckoned me Heart racing, feet rushing, boldly approaching You Causing alarm, laughable now, for it was love that drew me to You
Standing in Your Presence Tears of knowing joy Love so deep its painful Soaking You in Breathing You in Never wanting to leave Grateful for the most intimate gift.
Gilgal.
Knowing now (even in the smallest part) leaves me in awe and wonder more. Oil on canvas, nay, but more.Heavenly power imbued. It seeketh and it haunteth till the work of God is fu…

The Throne Room

Recently my sister and I had a conversation about the Throne Room of God and it reminded me of a precious encounter with The LORD a few years ago.  I share it that it might encourage you to enter His Presence, find the Love we all so desperately need, the Peace that surpasses all understanding, and an intimate relationship with The Almighty God through His Son, Jesus. Come, He is waiting…  The room is vast and i sense others there but do not see them. i feel all eyes are on me, yet it matters not.  i am drawn so strongly to the one before me that it's as though there is a tether in my heart that is being pulled in with each solemn footfall.  i am aware of nothing else, only this and only Him. The steps before me are gray, smooth, nondescript, but for the beautiful feet that rest upon the top one.  There are three steps and as i sit on the second step and pull the robe about me, i am aware of its vastness. It is deep scarlet red and Its train covers my every step. May a hunger for His P…

The Promise

The Promise
Can you see it?
When life swirls and hurls and feels out of control and we’ve lost our ability to even care, what in the world are we to do?
Remember the promises.
Lay hold of them.Lay our hand upon the Truth and let that Truth seep deep into every fiber of our being.Lay hands upon the rock solid, unchanging, ever present, steadfast promises of God.The ones given in His Word and the ones written on our hearts and the ones whispered in the dark.Remember them, meditate upon them, breath them in.
NO thing is impossible for our God.Did you hear that?How many times have you said that very phrase?But how many times have you actually dared to believe it, dared to act on it?
You see, there was this girl.She had her heart set on going to the Holy Land.Some may call it part of a bucket list.This was the only thing in this girl’s bucket!Problem was she was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, who grew up to be ordinary with ordinary job, ordinary income and responsibilities.It…
