It is possible to find peace serene
Where mind and soul merge in lucid delight.
Why do some view Truth as a blinding light
And harden their hearts to a faith unseen?
Suffocated by the day’s rhetoric,
A proud man has no need for God’s embrace.
Unwilling to breath in God’s saving grace
Or be smothered in God’s love euphoric.
Exemption from obligation is sought,
When the soul’s insight is clouded by sin.
All but choking faith and reason within
Asphyxiated by postmodern thought.
Seeking wisdom cannot be set aside,
Still more is found when faith is not denied.
“This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won’t come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is.” John 3:19-21 (The Message)
