Eager Expectation

WENDELL A. BROWN

As we sit down each day to share
Creation does take delight
Because from its very beginning
It has eagerly awaited those
Who were predestined to bring
The light of the creator back
Into a world darkened by sin and
decay.

For those who have risen through
the death of Christ, why they yet
live in the flesh in this putrid
world, have become empowered in
their inner person by the Holy
Spirit to be the blessed carriers
of the eternal message of His loving
grace, kindness and love.

For those who have put self to death
in Christ, now are reborn to serve
through the blessing of the new life
of our Lord, no longer being slaves
to worldly sin but joint heirs to the
new kingdom yet unseen, that they
patiently await with a fervent and
passionate hope.

So let the words and images of their
new messages flow daily from deep within,
while their new inner person delights in
everyone that comes from the Holy Spirit
which now inhabits their hearts, while being
passed through their daily gifts to others

For if they indeed are alive in the Spirit,
will not a river of seeds flow from these
gifts blessing many, as the power of His
Spirit moves them to understand and seek out
His love? Never tire of doing the good that
you now do but stand strong for only a
few are chosen for this challenging but
enjoyable task.

For God will remember those who serve others,
and they shall live forever with Him in the
kingdom to come! For though your flesh has
died to sin, your inner person, that is your
spirit is alive with Christ serving him daily
with all your heart, strength and spirit
sharing his love with many…

Teaching others to forgive themselves,
and many others instantly, as Christ
forgave us one time for everything
instantly by his sacrifice on the Cross.
bringing peace into the lives of many
by His example.

For there Is only one way to see God
and that is through the new creation
of the selfless inner person within…

If Christ is in you, your body Is now
dead because of sin, but your new inner
person, your spirit, is alive now
because of God’s righteousness and
amazing grace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Romans 8:19
For the creation waits in eager
expectation for the children of God
to be revealed.

Psalm 130:5-6
I wait eagerly for the Lord’s help,
and in his word I trust.
I wait for the Lord
more eagerly than sentries wait for the dawn;
than sentries wait for the dawn.

Thank You Lord

Tags

, , , , ,

I thank You for returning me to Your word
I am overjoyed by your loving embrace
For there is nothing as fulfilling as your love
Nothing as tantalizing as Your blessed grace

I am moved in my soul to shed many tears
For my happiness runneth over like a cup full
As what I feel in my heart is inexpressible
As what lives in my heart comes from only You

Who am I, Lord, this day but a poor vagabond
One who needs not to be noticed to be pleased
I am a person of such low esteem in this world
To be loved graciously by the only One I need

Many times my flesh has been broken by sin
Tormented ferociously by the enemies minions
Father, I prayed for them to be taken away
And your hand did banish them from within

Such healing power was found in Your living word
That, when spoken from your lips, filled my bones
Your words, “My grace will be sufficient for you
For in weakness is My power by you owned”

And I will lift up Your majestic Holy name
So that all who meet me will surely know
That though weakness by sight abounds within
It’s overcome by God who has made my heart home

For true salvation, this day is alive and well
As I daily walk with my loving God all day long
I will boast in You healing my infirmities
For with Your grace when I am weak, I am strong.

Written October 1976.
I had a leg injury in August 1976 which was
not healing, after three months, and I was
Lead to pray and I was able to rise up thanks
to faith in praying.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This prayer from Jeremiah, has healed many;

Jeremiah 17:14 14 heal me, O LORD, and I
will be healed; save me and I will be
saved, for you are the one I praise.

For You Are Our God

Tags

, , , , ,

Is not Your name
greatly praised
among the many nations
of the world?

Many believe in You,
and in their hearts
is it not you they
daily trust?

Your laws are written
upon the doors
of their hearts

And their eyes look
toward You so that
You will guide them in
Your ways

They seek instruction
daily, and from Your
word they will not
separate their spirits

For You are the choice
food which others do not
know about except those
who are Yours

They praise You, Lord,
for they love You,
and in Your strength
your power, and grace
they trust…

For You are our God.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm: 95:6
Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
Exodus 15:5
The LORD is my strength and song,
and he has become my salvation.
This is my God and I’ll praise him,
the God of my father and I’ll exalt him.

Finding You

Tags

I awaken from my sleep
finding my soul yearning
for You in the darkness
of the night

Sleep avoids my eyelids
until I have read Your word
digesting it deep within my
heart and soul

When the morning comes my
eyes open and I search for
You, as my spirit longs with
an insatiable need which
can only be satisfied by You

Finding that I am not filled
until my heart, mind, and spirit
have joined with You, melding
together as one in silent prayer
and sweet joyful meditation

For then and only then will
true restful peace come
occupying the temple within
me, melding with the whole
of all my parts especially
my spirit.

As the soft tranquility of Your
love becomes mine once again,
and I feel its loving grace
refreshing me with the living
waters of your spirit while
also blessing me with Your
wonderful eternal love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 63:6
When I remember You on my bed, I meditate
on You in the night watches,

Isaiah 26:9
At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my
spirit within me seeks You diligently; For
when the earth experiences Your judgments the
inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.

It Must Be love

Tags

, , , , ,

A touch, a smile full of
true happiness did
I cause this all to be?

Do I make the sun to
rise in eyes where its
rays have never been?

Do I make every song
and its melodies feel
like they all exist
because of only you

If I do it must be the love
we share, for you make
me feel that same way too!

A BEAUTIFUL ONE “HEATHER HEYER”

, , , , , , , ,

A Beautiful One, “Heather Heyer

She made another feel very special
With her very special caring joy
She easily would help many others
With her selfless spirit, she employed

The power and passion within her heart
The Godly bliss which filled her day
She knew how to share love with others
Helping those in need in a special way

She took a stand to make lives better
For many people, she did not really know
But as many at her job came to know her
In her heart, Heather could not let go

Deep within her heart His words live
One should love others as ones-self
She embraced His Living Word each day
Allowing them to be her treasured wealth

She loved all of those whom God created
Such a beautiful rainbow of human kind
She represented with others her kind Lord
To all hatred her heart was color-blind

She believed we were all Gods children
Doing her job she would give her best
As if all whom she served was her family
With her help, their lives might advance

Her selfless spirit has left us too soon
Yet her kindness in many hearts will stay
For the memory of this dear “beautiful one”
Is a priceless joy that will never go away.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I was moved to write this poem after
watching Heather’s funeral and listening
to how she would never turn from another
always there to share a helping hand
One who so many loved! She was killed
needlessly August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville
while protesting a white nationalist rally
in Virginia. I shared the poem at
americandiversityreport.com The creator
of the magazine is Deborah Levine. She published
my first poem, back in 2010, and she to me,
is my beloved sister and friend. You should
visit her internet Magazine…(read below).

Unless

Tags

, , , ,

Your eyes drip
with love…
They embrace me
in their sincere
deepness

And I lose my mind
in love’s warm essence
not touching,

But receiving a gift
that will last forever
by a sure promise you
will join me becoming
the best part of my life

Even by just walking,
talking, holding hands,
maybe sharing an occasional
kiss until our wedding day

And like a rock in quicksand
I sink…deeper and deeper
while finding that love would
have no meaning, unless its
shared selflessly with you

While preserving the
the fact we are one
together now…embracing
moments of joy which come
alive in smiles…provided
by the One who has blessed
us with His presence

Choosing to bring us together
as one after only a few weeks
blessing us to be Siamese twins.
never in life to be apart.

Sadness

Tags

, , , , ,

The sadness found within
my eyes are very real as
you are nowhere near.

The unhappiness finding
life upon my face, is as
real as my many tears.

For when you are not
near to me, so empty
my day will often seem

That I cannot even bring
a joyful thought of you
to live within my dreams.

Alone

Tags

, , , , , ,

Sometimes I feel so crazy now
Especially at night so very alone
My heart and soul feel so empty
As my thoughts just seem to roam

It seems entirely different these days
How my mistakes I seem to repeat
Whenever I lead with my emotions
Not really evaluating what my eyes see

It seems I become more uneasy now
No longer sure if I should take a chance
As it seems each time I lead with my heart
It always ends in another broken romance

So I think I’ll hold still for the present
Placing my faith in God that I will not slip
And the wife that I have asked Him for
Will come into my life with a lasting bliss.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I would always talk and pray
to God every day and every
night and I would always write
what I felt as I was lead,
when I spoke to His Spirit…
and I would listen

This was written 1 March 1977,
Right before I left for basic
training in the Air Force. The
rest is an answer to my prayer
a true beginning.
