DEATH TO LIFE; DISTORTION TO CLARITY

The man and woman ate.
The world plunged into a swirl of sights and sounds;
Chaos and turmoil were everywhere.
Their vision grew dim;
What had been music became senseless noise;
Clarity dissolved into confusion.

They tried to find meaning,
But their minds were dull and their hearts fast asleep.
They could not perceive or understand,.
Distortions prevailed,
Death held the world in its tight, icy grip.
All attempts to get free failed miserably.

Then came a man from God,
Who was alive, whole and free from Satan’s grasp.
He saw clearly and understood well;
He heard the Father;
His music was the song of salvation,
Declared to all people with deepest love.

Satan thought he had won,
But he turned out to be the greatest of fools.
He cheered when the Man was crucified,
The world was still his;
But Jesus rose triumphant from the grave,
Freeing us to live with Him forever.

Now He lives in our hearts,
So we can see and understand Him clearly.
Chaos and distortions fall away
When we look through Him,
Listening to His voice and hearing His words,
His reality is ever clearer.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
