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: Enoch

Enoch was a dynamic soul
who truly sought God’s heart;
as a result of revelation knowledge
being imparted unto him,
God plucked him from the earth
so that he was “no more.”
Since Jehovah is no respecter of persons
and there is “nothing new under the sun”,
then why do we know only of a single individual
who was transported to heaven in the same manner
without experiencing an earthly demise?
How many “other” Enochs were there
whose names are unknown?
Did Enoch’s life story inspire God
to put His Word into print
with the intention of history repeating itself?
Why do ministers neglect Enoch’s story?
Perhaps by contrast it would reflect
poorly on themselves,
seeing they are still with us.

Poem: Daily Bread

Beyond the lost days of manna,
all nutrition I’ll ever need
was given to me at birth
with the implantation of spiritual seed.

An enabling inner spark,
combined with soul’s hungering emptiness,
allowed me to find divine connection
and a path towards your Holiness.

Thank You Lord for your Daily Bread
that feeds my spirit and sustains my soul;
for feasting on your Word everyday
is the best way to be kept whole.

Poem: Avoiding Hell?

Have you sealed your fate
with the rejection of Him?
Accept Christ now
before your life wears thin.

For in permanent separation
there’s no God or peace –
Only continual torment and anguish
without any comfort or release.

Alone in the dark
as fallen angels without light,
you too will become a demon creature
lacking hope of spiritual sight.

Forget about Purgatory,
but make a decision today –
avoiding Hell can be done,
for Christ is the Life, Truth and Way.

Poem: As a Joint Heir with Thee

What a blessing it would be
as a joint heir with thee,
sharing the Father’s affection
for the numerous days of eternity!

What a honor you’ve bestowed upon me
as a joint heir with thee,
being adopted by the universal King
and connected to the divine, family tree.

What a grand responsibility
as a joint heir with thee,
proclaiming your name and love
to the World’s expanse of humanity.
