Poems

‘Wings of the morning’ *

Since God, indeed, fills every space, Then there is not a single place Where I can travel or will wander, Where I won’t be completely under God’s protective shield—His allness,  His eternal lovingkindness.   Just where could I ever go That I would be helpless to know God’s goodness always enfolds me, Embraces, holds me constantly? There is no such remote location, Nor any frightening situation.

New each day

Yearning to know God’s all-power,  I asked Him during one dark hour,  “What is it that I need to see  When faced with rank impurity?”  The answer gently, quickly came That man and sin are not the same. God’s image, man, like Him must be  Lovely, chaste, and blemish-free.

The meditation of my heart

“O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. ” * Open now my heart to love You all my days.

Thank You, dear God

Thank You, dear God,    for being You Fount of divine Life    That creates all things new If from Thy fold    far we roam Truth, tender and strong,    Guide gently home Oneness with Soul    forever intact Not matter, but Mind    The spiritual fact Then, with gospels of Love    glad tidings our song Glory to God     To whom all belong —G. Gershala Goldsmith.

Our Truth constitution

There are no separate sets of statutes governing man— our constitution is divine. Love’s judgment never wavers, nor can freedom be bartered.

Walk before Me

“I am the Almighty God;  walk before me,  and be thou perfect. ”* It is not just that I have  your back but that you,  My precious one, are My shining crown, My joyful declaration.

Open access

I am not a caged bird trapped in matter’s rigidity. I am a bird in the beckoning sky welcomed and embraced in Spirit’s liberty hearkening to Love’s uplifting thrust flying fearless and free exploring limitless infinity pursuing my unique path of flight finding open access               to Love’s unbounded delight! — Joyce Dronsfield.

Haven

We can peacefully let go,  nestle within Spirit’s Word, in Love’s embrace assured by the divine Comforter humbly listening soaking in every divine thought given us moment by moment, thanking God, good, for His supreme power and all-presence ever with us, dispelling fear and danger— reminding us of the sacred truth of our spiritual being sustaining us safely through the scenes of human need. — Suzanne Goewert.

Lens of Soul

Revealed by the Comforter: God is All and man is whole. Evidence, obscured by matter, Comes to light through lens of Soul.

God’s photograph of you

Whether a passive observer  of someone else’s frame or a social media enthusiast  actively engaged in the know thy selfie game there’s a photograph of you that’s lovingly captured every moment a perfect portrait of His composing precisely focused, yet resplendently glowing never a fading, static two dimensional moment in time but an unblemished, everlasting expression of Mind’s knowing of Soul’s brilliance revealed in impeccable light every meticulous detail precisely right yours to joyfully behold each day— God’s exact, true likeness and it’s here to stay. — Steve Ryf.
