The Battle

knight-321443_640

The battle rages
But Christ is victorious
The serpent’s head crushed

Behind the lines

The LORD God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
cursed are you above all livestock
and above all beasts of the field;
on your belly you shall go,
and dust you shall eat
all the days of your life.
I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
and you shall bruise his heel.” (Genesis 3:14-15)

The Gateway

20181201_130200

The narrow gate leads
Away from the ease of home
To glories unknown

Behind the lines

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many (Matthew 7:13). 

The Writer’s Block

black-and-white-person-woman-night

The sidewalks are closed
For some unneeded repair
All traffic has stopped

Utilities off
Nothing is open nearby
No place to buy words

Tired inspiration
No sensory ingestion
There’s nowhere to walk

Stuck, staring at stairs
Old metal ones with wet paint
Gray, like the weather

Cloudy, cold winter
Without the sun, snow or rain
Only a deep blah…

Can you answer?

The LORD questioned Job,
He called to him from the storm,
His voice would thunder:

What can you make known?
Who darkens counsel by words?
Job, can you answer?

And where were you when
The earth’s foundations were laid?
Do you remember?

Did your skillful hands
Make boundaries for the sea?
What was their measure?

Can you make snowflakes?
Can you lift the clouds and rain?
Control the weather?

Who argues with God?
Did you form the mouth to speak?
Can you answer me?

Behind the lines

Job 38 – 42:6

And the LORD said to Job:

“Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty?
He who argues with God, let him answer it.”

Then Job answered the LORD and said:

Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer you?
I lay my hand on my mouth.
I have spoken once, and I will not answer;
twice, but I will proceed no further (Job 40:1-5).”
