    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Voices of visible church calling me from behind

Discussion in 'Poetry' started by joy-messiah, Apr 19, 2007.

  1. Voices of visible church calling me from behind

    I was walking in thick darkness
    So tired like I was walking alone since the world began
    Only familiar thing was death, tasting death every moment
    Then the light shineth in darkness
    Like darkness was nothing, And light is every thing
    First time I could see my Beloved

    My Beloved is mine and I am his
    His name is as ointment poured forth
    His head and His hairs are white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire;
    And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
    And out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength
    First time my heart was singing HIS praises
    First time I could see colors round about his throne
    In Him is life and life is the light in me
    But darkness hates light since the world began
    So came all blind
    So came all dead
    So came all lukewarm
    So came all naked and poor saying
    Come to us we will make you rich
    For by good words and fair speeches we deceive the hearts of the simple
    Leave your Beloved, Come to us
    If you just keep ignoring the small still voice inside you till it die

    Look cross is too heavy to bear
    Look you are wounded
    Look you are trying to hide pain in your eyes
    Look your feet are leaving marks of blood
    (The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me)
    Look your Beloved is leading you to a very narrow way
    Where very few people will walk with you
    And all the world will hate you for they hate your Beloved
    Leave your beloved, Come to us
    If you just keep ignoring the small still voice inside you till it die

    With riches of world with lust of the world we will fill you
    Come back its so much fun to be blind and dead
    We will slowly take away truth from you and will give u self righteousness
    We will take away pure love and give u lust
    Leave your beloved, Come to us
    If you just keep ignoring the small still voice inside you till it die

  7. thank u so much for remembering my poem. wrote it while crying. A missionary lady from Germany rebuked me for studding bible and trying to discern if church was preaching according to Word of GOD. She said only thing require from u is go to church and attend prayer meetings, She gave me formula how to kill the still small voice of God inside me.
