People say I'm: honest, idealistic, analytical and that I think differently. According to Myer-Briggs, I'm: ENFJ. That translates to: a personality type of (slight) Extrovert, iNtuitive, Feeling, and Judging. In describing myself: I'm an IT (Information Technology) geek that writes Christian poetry. Soooo, hopefully, both sides of my brain work. If that wasn't enough fun, I'm also a natural Maine-iac.

Poem: On God's Mountain

To be on Your mountain top
with an elevated view,
could my chances increase
for getting a glimpse of You?

Standing barefoot in Your presence
before a burning bush consumed,
would Your glory envelop me
as a spiritual womb?

Moses saw Your backside,
but show me instead Your face and eyes.
Having direct interaction with You
should cause my faith to be revised.

Conquering obstacles of Life
via a mountainous climb,
while developing a personal relationship
help makes the upward trek sublime.

Poem: No Elaborate Pretense

Please forgive the simplicity of rhyme,
for I wish to be clear and take my time.

It’s never been “pc” to be Christian in any century,
out of step with the World, in what ones does or sees.

Having ideals may make me seem pompous,
even though I have no desire to impress.

I’m attempting to follow a Heavenly Plan,
by being a godly steward and serving fellow Man.

What I write from the heart, for me is real;
although as a guy, I’m not supposed to feel.

For some, the Principles of God make no sense –
However, my Faith is… no elaborate pretense.

Poem: If I Were...

If I were...
   truly illuminated, what would you see?
   Could the brightness of Christ fully shine
   and the persona of me disappear?

If I were...
   gifted, in other unknown ways.
   Would I be able to discover them
   or would I choose to deny them anyway?

If I were...
   blessed, beyond Earthly needs.
   How much of myself would I be willing to share,
   besides just money and possessions?

If I were...
   eloquent, in my verbose speech.
   Would I be able to teach anything
   and would anyone want to listen?

If I were...
   God, as Satan imagined.
   Would I give people choice
   and have them risk damnation?

Poem: Human Matrix

Forcing an alignment of corporate resources
for some theory of best fit correlation
doesn't work on Kingdom People
when using an unspoken method of tabulation.

If Life is about true spiritual growth,
then why do ministries attempt to pigeon-hole
not making any allowances for us
to develop, expand and break our current mold?

Despite multitudes of outcome possibilities
the Church seems to suffer bouts of paralysis
from the continued mashing of talents and gifts
resulting from unexplained Presbyterian analysis.

There are many ministry leaders who speak of vision -
Their tone indicates that the laity is completely blind and numb;
their message is clear - the Body is not interested
to reach the Earth before Kingdom Come.

We are souls with great, untapped potential
and not just elements of an array.
Despite our abilities and life experiences,
our dreams and desires we're not allowed to convey.

For a failure of Church motivational tricks
comes from cramming God's People into a human matrix.
