Do you love me?

Standard

do you love me

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep…  John 21 v 15-17

Do you love me?

Do you love me he whispered?

Do you love me with love that’s so true?

Do you love me with all of your heart?

Do you love me, do you love me, do you?

I see my little ones dying,

All alone, so unloved, so afraid.

I hear their cries and it hurts me so much,

This was not the purpose, for which they were made.

Please feed my sheep be a blessing,

Let them know that you truly care.

Feed my sheep grant them solace,

I gave you more than enough, so you’d share.

Do you love me he whispered?

Do you love me with all of your soul?

Do you love me with all that you are?

Do you love me, do you make love your goal?

I hear my children screaming,

For justice, for mercy, for peace.

For someone to help share their burden,

For someone to make hatred cease.

Please take care of my lambs, I implore you,

Give them refuge, then build a safe place.

Love them as I have loved you,

Furnish their lives with limitless grace.

Do you love me he whispered?

Do you love me with all of your strength?

Do you love me with all of your mind?

Do you love me, would you go to, any length?

I feel the great pain of my children,

As they try to reach out to call.

As they try to drink without water,

As they try to make sense of it all.

Please feed my sheep, be a blessing,

Open your arms, meet their need.

A small act can make a huge difference,

Start planting, some life changing seed.

Do you love me he whispered?

Do you love me with love that’s so true?

Do you love me with all of your heart?

Do you love me, do you love me, do you?

He Is Risen

Standard

he is risen

…But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; He has risen, just as He said! Come, see the place where He lay. Then go quickly and tell His disciples, ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see Him.’ See, I have told you.”…

                                                                                                                      Mathew 28 v 5-7

He Is Risen

 

My child don’t hang your head in sorrow

Speak to your heart, the truth to her tell,

Death’s lost its power, it could not keep me

Satan’s gates didn’t hold, stand up so well.

No power had he to match my Fathers

No grounds had he to claim the earth,

No roots had he to make firm his kingdom

To man and beast he had no worth.

 

My child don’t hang your head in sorrow

Weep not for me besides an empty tomb,

Don’t look for me in deaths grave garments

Nor seek my body to reclaim, exhume.

Don’t look for me in the arms of mourners

Don’t look for me upon a cross,

Don’t look for me where you’ll never find me

I have not gone, I am not lost.

 

My child don’t hang you head in sorrow

Death lost its sting I am alive,

The way is now open to my Father

His will sufficed, His truths abide.

No schemes of man, no priests, no powers

Could perceive, contain the plan divine,

A now the Way, the Truth, the Life

Will heaven and earth once more align.

 

My child don’t hand your head in sorrow

For all these things and more, you’ll do,

I’ve seen your hearts, I know you’re potential

That’s why what I did, I did for you.

So do not fear and do not worry

Be strong, have courage, toward the prize strive,

Trust in me, know I am with you

For I Have Risen…. I Am Alive.

Did you hear the stones cry out?

Standard

did you hear

The problem that Judas and so many others had, had with Jesus was his Kingship. You see they had long hoped for a King who would fight for them, with swords and spears, a Warrior King. A King, who would bring down Rome, with all of its oppressive ways. But Jesus was a humble King, a King who fought only with Love and Peace and Truth. He was a King of choice, of grace and of free will.

They wanted a King who reflected power and authority, a King who was born into wealth and renown, a King who wore a crown to be envied by all. But Jesus was born in a stable to a poor young unmarried mother, who had little or no status and his crown was a crown of sacrifice, of thorns, not to be envied, but to be laughed at ridiculed.

They wanted a King who dined with statesmen, a King who was friends with the rich, the educated, the famous, and the powerful. But Jesus was a King who ate with tax collectors, who befriended prostitutes, who spent time with the lowest of low.

They wanted a King who would save himself. But Jesus was a King who wanted only to save others.

They wanted a King…They got the prince of peace.

They wanted a King… They got a Saviour.

They wanted a King…But they didn’t recognise him when he arrived and so they felt betrayed.

Did you hear the stones cry out?

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

When our shame had stolen our voice,

When we kept our heads hung low

And we named Barabbas as our choice.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

When our silence said it all,

When Pontius Pilate washed his hands

And we stood by the sin that caused our fall.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

When our guilt shunned innocence,

When we watched them tear his flesh apart

Because he would not cry out in his own defence.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

When our anger made us ask,

If you are truly who you day you are

Then smite them like we asked.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

Because you we closed our eyes and turned away,

Because we held each soldiers coat

Accepted the coins they threw our way.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

When we gazed up on the Son of Man,

Who we could no longer even recognise

He was our God, He is I Am.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

As we hid our face in shame,

When the realisation dawned upon us

That things would never be the same.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

As we bowed our head and cried,

When they drove in the nails deep

And we faced the fullness of our pride.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

As we fully recognised,

That the one hanging there before us

Was God’s beloved, life’s greatest prize.

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

As we listened to his voice,

Please forgive them Father he asked

Of all he could have asked for, that was his choice!

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

As he took his final breath,

As he closed eyes for the last time

Did our hearts not suddenly feel bereft?

 

Did you hear the stones all cry out?

When our disbelief kept our mouths closed,

Did you hear the stones all crying out

Because of all the goats, dressed in sheep’s clothes.

Then the earth fell silent.

Standard

then the earth fell silent

The Death of Jesus

At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.”

Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said.

With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.

The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”  Mark 15 v 33-38 NIV.

 

Then the earth fell silent.

Then the earth fell silent, not a mutter, not a sigh could be heard,

Not a quiet sound or a whisper, it was silent’s, silent, I know that sounds absurd.

And the wind in the tree’s held its breath and the sun quickly gathered her rays,

And the lilies in the field tucked their petals in tight, and the clouds darkened, the birds flew away.

For man had reached the lowest of low, he had done the most heinous of things,

He had taken the life of an innocent man, murdered the prince, the true King of Kings.

Oh why, oh why did you do it? My heart sank, yet I was part of it too,

For the sin and the lies and the evil, had washed me and was part of me through and through.

He looked like a new babe in arms, as he hung there all battered and bruised,

Such love and passion filled his eyes, like a parent when the school race you lose.

Forgive them Father he said, for they know not what they do,

Look at them and have mercy on them, I’ve seen the truth and they are ready it’s true.

All the work that I’ve done they’ll continue, all the words that I spoke they’ll repeat,

All the things that I did they will do, they will serve both the strong and the weak.

Forgive them Father he whispered, there’s good in them truly there is,

Forgive them they misunderstood, at that moment in time they still acted as his.

Then the earth fell silent, not a mutter, not a sigh could you hear,

Yet somehow you knew that it had now finished, and the way had at last been made clear.

And the wind in the tree’s held its breath, and the sun quickly gathered her rays,

It was then; right then that it happened, Jesus was recognised and then he was praised.

Spirito Santo

Standard

spirito-santo

Spirito Santo

As the world awakens, as the world comes alive,

With each breath, with each beat of its heart,

As its people begin to ask questions, seek answers,

As the dawning of change slowly begins to take part…

‘Another Day, Someday’. . . A Time To Share. . .

Standard

A Time to Share. . .

Well it finally went and happened. After years of speculation, close calls, near misses, wrong turns, steps backwards, ‘Another day, Someday’ decisively arrived and I for one couldn’t be more delighted. The sun is shining, the sky is the bluest of blue and I am finally at peace with myself and happy to be me. Everything is just like I always dreamt it would be it’s just like I always imagined it would be. . . Only Better!!

The summer of my life has duly arrived bringing with it all the Hope, Opportunity, and Possibility that my ever expanding heart can handle. Today, ‘Another day, Someday’ seems like the perfect day to begin to share my thoughts with you, after all if I didn’t share them Here, Now, when would I share them?? Another Day? Someday?

But where to begin? There are so many things I’d love to share with you, so many things I’d like to say, and so many things I’d like to encourage us all to talk about, to think about, and to seek to understand. There are so many wonderful people old and new that have lead incredible, life changing/enhancing/dynamic lives that we can learn a great deal from, so many amazing things still to discover, so many unbelievable things yet to achieve. So onwards and upwards it is then with the help, guidance, tenacity and wisdom of our very kindly and gracious friend, Experience. With our shared passion of all things technological, our great taste in music, our penchant for the arts and our love of the written word, we will set off together down that yet to be carved out path, with a bunch of people, that we know, but don’t know. Open minded, open hearted, and free to speak, to laugh, to cry. Spirits unbound, accountable to each other, to all those who have been, to all those who have yet to come. . . .

With compassion, integrity and grace we will learn and question, grow and test, strive and reach and hopefully when all is said and done life will bless us by helping us to be so much more than pilgrims on a journey, it will make us friends, neighbours, family.

Leave a trail of bread crumbs if you must but remember to travel lightly, to be prepared, to stay open minded, to treat others the way you want to be treated, to love like you mean it and to sing and dance often.

Enjoy yourself have fun and let your beautiful heart show you in all of its Glorious Technicolor what it was truly made for. . .
