Unseen

For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?   Romans 8:24

A rejoicing heart no man can take away
likewise, a young day blushing in the sunrise
pays no mind to the dark nights of yesterday.

Love revealed to the soul is blind to the eyes
as unseen thoughts transformed these empty pages
with hope more tangible than a world of lies.

Freedom is possible from these Earth-bound cages
when the mind soaks up the fullness of the Son
and is flooded with wisdom for the ages.

Logic salutes the unseen in due season
where experience surpasses mere knowledge
and true faith lives along side higher reason.

Seek His joy beyond the empirical edge;
Let the soul feast on God’s everlasting pledge.

    Thank you for this. It’s so true, and revealed truth changes one’s life. I love the stanza beginning with “Freedom is possible…” Soaking up the reality of Jesus cannot be done with our minds. And such truth isn’t dangerous. As you said, it’s liberating because revelation from God agrees with His Word.

    I’m so glad you’re writing–or sending–poems again. They’re a blessing.

    Also, please note the change of email address. I don’t always check this site. And, another housekeeping detail, I’m currently receiving two copies of your posts rather than one at this site. I don’t know if you’re paying for them, but if you are, the second is obviously unnecessary.

      Hello Solveig,

      Yes, truth is liberating and I love how God never stops revealing Himself to us. There is always more to know and experience with Him.

      Regarding the emails you are receiving, I am guessing you are “following” my blog which is a relatively new (or revised) feature of WordPress. It is free of charge. If you go into your “Dashboard” and the click on “Blogs I Follow” you will see settings and options for how you receive notifications of new posts for blogs you follow. The other feature that you have probably signed up for is “subscribe via email” which is on found on the right hand column of my blog page. This is a free service through Feedburner. I went into Feedburner and deleted your old email address. In the future, you should only receive notices through WordPress “Blogs I Follow” and again, you can set up if you want to receive email and if so how frequently, etc.

      Blessings to you and Happy New Year!

  2. This is beautiful! I like the poetry form, too. I may have to try one of these sometime.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I’m looking forward to more of your poetry in 2012. Peace, Linda

  3. Great poem. I’m glad I found your blog. Looking forward to reading some more.
