You Light Up My Life (by God)

September 18, 2020

So many nights
I’d sit by my window
Waiting for someone
To sing me his song
So many dreams
I’ve kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark
But now you’ve come along

And you
Light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
With song


What Is the Truth, Now? : Last Hallelujah

In The Name of Love_0001

Walking alone through the desert sands
In a blinding light someone reaching out their hands
I saw the black of the midnight sky
Turning blood red right before my eyes

I’m simply mystified
A soul electrified
I feel a yearning within
As the spirit kicks in

The earth stands still as I shake
Before my maker’s face
There’s no time, no space
My body elevates
I see my world collide
I feel so alive
This might be my last
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

In The Name of Love_0

Walking on water in a raging storm
I could see the face of a man with a crown of thorns
In the distance I can hear a voice
And it’s calling me, it’s calling me

To testify
No need to justify
I feel a heavenly wind
Like a breath on my skin

The earth stands still as I shake
Before my maker’s face
There’s no time, no space
My body elevates
I see my world collide
I feel so alive
This might be my last
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Sing Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah

The Music-And New

The earth stands still as I shake
Before my maker’s face
There’s no time, no space
My body elevates
I see my world collide
I feel so alive
This might be my last
Hallelujah

This might be my last
I feel so alive
Hallelujah
This might be my last
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

The Word: Infallible Dialogues (2)

July 9, 2019

Jesus and Saul (To the Churches)

As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.  He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him,

“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
“Who are You, Lord?” Saul asked.
“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.”

So he, trembling and astonished, said
“Lord, what do You want me to do?”
“Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Then Saul arose from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus.  For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

Apostles Preaching - Dore

“And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance; And saw him saying unto me,”

“Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.”

And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said,

“Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of Me in Jerusalem,
so must thou bear witness also at Rome.”

“But I make known to you, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not according to man.  For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.  For you have heard of my former way of life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it.”
“But when it pleased God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by His grace, to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood.”  “(Now concerning the things which I write to you, indeed, before God, I do not lie.)”

“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, And that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.  After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep.  After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.  Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.  For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle. . . .”

Heaven and Hell

What Is Left To Be Trusted?

What we read?
What we hear?
What we see?

When we can only trust that which is without question,
know then what is true – and what is to be believed.
When there is nothing left but undoubted answers,
all that will remain is what was written to follow.

Sing me a song, you’re a singer
Do me a wrong, you’re a bringer of evil
The Devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you’re a taker
So it’s on and on and on, it’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
The lover of life’s not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
the sooner you’ll know that you’re dreaming
So it’s on and on and on, oh it’s on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell, fool, fool!
Well if it seems to be real, it’s illusion
For every moment of truth, there’s confusion in life
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
And it’s on and on, on and on and on….
They say that life’s a carousel
Spinning fast, you’ve got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they’ll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh no!
Fool, fool!
You’ve got to bleed for the dancer!
Fool, fool!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!

The Angel of Revelation

Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.”

Hand of God

Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”

And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.”


(I Might Be Your) “Wishing Well”

April 13, 2019

Throw me a penny and I’ll make you a dream
You find that life’s not always what it seems, no no
Then think of a rainbow and I’ll make it come real
Roll me, I’m a never ending wheel
I’ll give you a star
So you know just where you are
Don’t you know that I might be
Your wishing well
Your wishing well
Look in the water, tell me what do you see
Reflections of the love you give to me
Love isn’t money, it’s not something you buy
So let me fill myself with tears you cry, and why?
Time is a never ending journey
Love is a never ending smile
Give me a sign to build a dream on
Dream on…
Yeah, Throw me a penny and I’ll make you a dream
You find that life’s not always what it seems, no no
Love isn’t money, it’s not something you buy
So let me fill myself with tears you cry
I’ll give you a star
So you know just where you are
Someday, some way, you’ll feel the things I say
Dream for a while
Of the things that make you smile
‘Cause you know
Don’t you know
Oh, you know
That I’m your wishing well
Your wishing well
Your wishing well
I wish you well
I’m your wishing well

Only By; Only For; Only When

January 12, 2019

Only by,
Only for,
Only when:

We do not question.
We go forward;
We learn.

We look to Jesus Christ.
We look to the apostles.
We look to the prophets.
We look to all servants,
As we go forward –
As we look to God.
We go forward –
That we may learn,
That we may be,
one – eventually.

In the name of the Father,
The name of the Son,
The name of the Spirit –
We bow to the Word,
We bow to the Light,
We vow to a beginning –
Which shall come as an end.

Even as we are carried,
Even unto death,
We go forward;
We continue.
As we are delivered,
We learn –
Time, and again.

There is nothing higher.
There is no One higher.
As we aspire to be,
There is only,
in everyeternally.

“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26

Now: Secret Charges Are “Accidentally Revealed”

Accidentally Revealed”: And, Britain just “inadvertently” ignored a UN Human Rights ruling that Julian Assange was “being arbitrarily detained in violation of International Law.”  And, soon, he will be “interrogated” with (more) “enhanced” measures (tortured further) – for as long as it takes.  Then, (controlled) Leaks will provide details of all his (False) confessions.

But, again (and again, and again), these types of global repercussions often happen with “simple copy-paste error[s].”

The question: Where are we?

First, they came for the Conspiracy Theorists, and not enough realized the long-term goals of the (star chambered) conspirators. Next, they came for those daring to even speak Truth to Power, and not enough realized the long-term goals of the (star chambered) conspirators.
Then, the level of worldwide Controlled Narratives was exposed through the most obvious Pys-Op of a (renewed) McCarthyite Russian Campaign, and not enough realized the long-term goals of the (star chambered) conspirators.  And finally, though just enough (of those who were not blind or awakened) saw that It was all covered under Lies Through Scripted Actors with Staged Acts, the (star chambered) conspirators continued their onslaught, completely emboldened – for the time had come when they could fulfill last steps of those long-term goals.

[See] Obama’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he [was] responsible for “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs.”  In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-“independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites – as well as other activist groups – which advocate views that Sunstein deems “false conspiracy theories” about the Government.

The King and the Queen are gone, each piece is the same

What is this madness that is filling the skies
Spreading like wildfire, fallin’ like rain
Though they may promise, they only bring pain

Message To Love

May 20, 2018


Well I travel at the speed of a reborn man
I got a lot of love to give
From the mirrors of my hand

I sent a message of love
Don’t you run away
Look at your heart baby
Come on along with me today

Well I am what I am thank God
Some people just don’t understand
Well help them God
Find yourself first
And then your tool
Find yourself first
Don’t you be no fool

Here comes a woman
Wrapped up in chain
Messin’ with that fool baby
Your life is pain
If you wanna be free
Come on along with me
Don’t mess with the man
He’ll never understand
I said find yourself first
And then your talent
Work hard in your mind
So you can come alive
You better prove to the man
You’re as strong as him
Cause in the eyes of God
You’re both children to him

Everybody come alive
Everybody love alive
Everybody love alive
Everybody hear my message

The Prophet (and Those Who Knew Him)

The Prophet -Gibran++

The Prophet: On Reason and Passion

Your reason and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul. If either your sails or your rudder be broken, you can but toss and drift, or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas.
For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.  Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, that it may sing; And let it direct your passion with reason, that your passion may live through its own daily resurrection, and like the phoenix rise above its own ashes.

Kahlil Gibran - Jesus

Jesus The Son of Man:

Mary: And well I remember how once He raised His hand towards the sky, and His parted fingers were like the branches of an elm.  And I remember Him pacing the evening.  He was not walking.  He Himself was a road above the road; even as a cloud above the earth that would descend to refresh the earth.


Doorway To a Thousand Churches

December 25, 2017

Love, I get so lost sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
When I want to run away, I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go, I come back to the place you are

All my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes, the light, the heat
(In your eyes) I am complete
(In your eyes) I see the doorway
(In your eyes) To a thousand churches
(In your eyes) The resolution
(In your eyes) Of all the fruitless searches
(In your eyes) Oh, I see the light and the heat
(In your eyes, the light, the heat)
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes

Love, I don’t like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts, they return
And the grand façade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes (your eyes, your eyes)
In your eyes
In your eyes, the light, the heat
(In your eyes) I am complete
(In your eyes) I see the doorway to a thousand churches
(In your eyes) The resolution
(In your eyes) Of all the fruitless searches
Oh, I see the light and the heat
(In your eyes) Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light, the heat I see in your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes

Crying In the Wilderness

December 20, 2017

Born amidst the wonder
Born among the lost
Watching the abandonment of reason
Taking in the moment
Taking up the years
Witnessing the end of our good season

Stirring strange emotions
Conjuring the fears
Each one sees the things they really want to see
Made a world of wonder, we made a world of pain
Now the days will come for the apostasy
(the days have come for the apostasy)

I am watching it fall around (me)
I am listening to every sound I hear
I am doing what I can do
As the daylight is fading on the Eve
Of the Great Decline . . .

Dumbing down the Culture, Chaos on the Rise
Watching all the beauty as it’s waning
Scene is so familiar, like words that I have read
The world is lost but soon a new one gaining

(I’m watching, listening to all)
(I’m watching everything fall)

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you

With my arms open wide
I threw away my pride
I’ll sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life to you

And I, I’ve got a song to sing
Telling the world about the joy you bring
And you gave me a reason for living
And you taught me, you taught me the meaning of giving


Network[ed] Narratives (World Be Damned)

November 6, 2017

Step by Step Productions:
Scripted, Talking Points, PR and Staged Narratives

Donna Brazile, the DNC, and [Endless Colluded Corruption]

Right off the bat, Richard Eskow sets up a MSM cover, deflection, and downplay article: “Aren’t there better things to argue about?  As it turns out, there are.”

Aside from this “play/write it safe as possible” PR blather, in relation to Donna Brazile and ongoing corruption within the DNC, this whole related context demands “things to argue about” – vehemently, but not in the MSNBC/CNN-style of Scripted/Pre-approved Talking Point Presentations – fulfilled upon Staged Productions.

Prime Example:
“And she’s quick to pronounce the DNC innocent of actions, including her own, that are . . . widely known.”

Right there, we have a bottom line, a core, and the overriding Truth.
Yet, he immediately follows this up with two sentences which destroy his and the article’s entire credibility:

“Still, Brazile is right on the particulars.  And it’s hard not to admire her courage, book promotion or not.”

Just literally sickening: “it’s hard not to admire her courage” – while discounting the PR campaign for a Book Tour ($1 million dollars profit?).

Here’s an example of Donna Brazile’s courage:

Further Acts and Scripts In The Name of Jesus Christ and God:

Quote: “As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not stand here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.”

“Stop and think about . . . that sort of bald-faced (Worldwide TV) Lie [for a moment.]”

Next: “Don’t re-litigate the past.”  “This time around, I couldn’t agree more.  Let’s litigate the future instead.”

Yes, “We must look forward, not backward.”  Wait!  That sounds so familiar!  And, did that mentality help us to right so many critical wrongs that were done on the world stage – thus, actually enabling them to exponentially propagate?

Again: Just – Literally – Sickening.

Then: “A reformed Democratic Party should” blah blah, blah = As If!

Why “As If?” For one among multitudes:
The DNC picked a bunch of sleazy lobbyists as superdelegates, can’t figure out why no one is donating.

Watch an Overall Summary:

Within Controlled confines, nothing will change – beyond reworkings of Scripts, Narratives, Presentations, and Staged Productions.

10/01 Headline:
WH Pushes Positive PR Campaign as Puerto Rico’s Crisis Continues

Look (10/19):
Trump speaking to reporters as Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rossello looked on. “I would give myself a ten,” he said.  “We have provided so much, so fast.”

Remember an Alternate Headline:
Leaked: Outlined PR Plan for Worldwide TV Show

A Step by Step Production:
“today and tomorrow we use” – “Monday and Tuesday we can pivot” –
“throughout next week and next weekend” – “Then we start a theme”

Ask:
At what (scripted) page of the Production are we on?

Consider again:
How much of what I see, hear, and read is . . . Controlled?
To what extent?  How far under do those Narrative tentacles feed?
How long has this been going on?
And, what more does this “Leak” actually tell us?

Then, don’t be surprised by an eventual Final Act Production Note:
“Planned hits.”

And know:
The aide said that guys like me were ‘in what we call the reality-based community,’ which he defined as people who ‘believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.’  […]  ‘That’s not the way the world really works anymore,’ he continued.  ‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.  And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out.  We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’

In a series of Narrated Setups: First, Star Chamber interests decide what directions and actions are needed to fulfill what has been chosen for implementation.  Next (after successful steps), many months (or even years) beforehand, they dispense Talking Points to concerted operatives, pliable/collusive publications, and fronted or “reliable” “news” sources.  Then, the people are (sold) “informed” incrementally as to what is inevitably upcoming.  Thus, under the guise of Facts simply being reported, it works (exceedingly) as a well-timed machine.

Romans 1:18-21

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

An Open Letter to Google/YouTube

August 4, 2017

(Attn: legal@support.youtube.com)

Censored, Blocked, and Banned: An Open Letter to Google/YouTube
(Censorship: Google Bans and First Draft Coalition[s])

My account, (Verified Channel) WindHarps (which has been online since September of 2007), is in Good Standing (0 copyright strikes/0 Community Guidelines strikes).  Moreover, the entire channel and all uploaded videos reflect dedication, inspiration, and devotion to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  Yet, it is essentially Blocked, overall. For instance, my most recent/Featured video (I’ve Been) Searchin’ So Long: Chicago (Rains) has been locked at 522 visits for two months – even though it is known, for a Fact, that various friends from other blogs, social sites, and personal relationships have been visiting/watching.  Further, in total relation, virtually every video at WindHarps Videos has experienced or witnessed an abrupt, absolute cessation of (Counted/Analytic) views during the same period.

Crucially revealing, this has happened numerous times over the last ten years – which also resulted in various (similar) letters sent to you via Fax, Email, and Feedback.

Why?  Do you have a problem with individuals who focus on God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit?  But no, since there are so many others who succeed on YouTube in the same vein it must not be that (as a core).  Is it something else, like Politics (past and present)?  Is it because of a ceasing of Advertising ($pending money) through AdWords for promotion?  Is it connected to the First Draft Coalition? Or, is it all (Holy Trinity, Politics, and Censorship) working together?

Whatever your (actual) reasons, a Resolution is sought – without my offering any compromises to permanent values or dedications.  The WindHarps channel and all related videos can be Unblocked and/or taken out of purposely effective obscurity (manually relegating content to pages 172, for example) should you choose, altruistically (as a matter of what is simply righteous – even in business models), or just technically (as a matter of the least levels – of business ethics).

(These factual statements have also be sent by way of Feedback).
Finally, forward this communication to any appropriate departments.

Addendum: How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet
to Manipulate,
Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction.

[O]ur NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, . . . and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

In fact, the discussion of many of these techniques occurs in the context of using them in lieu of “traditional law enforcement” against people suspected (but not charged or convicted) of ordinary crimes or . . . those who use online protest activity for political ends.  The title page of one of these documents reflects the agency’s own awareness that it is “pushing the boundaries” by using “cyber offensive” techniques against people who have nothing to do with terrorism or national security threats.

The broader point is that . . . these surveillance agencies have vested themselves with the power to deliberately ruin people’s reputations. . . .

[This] amounts to targeting citizens for expressing their political beliefs, resulting in the stifling of legitimate dissent.

Under the tactics they use, the state is deliberately spreading lies on the internet about whichever individuals it targets, including the use of what GCHQ itself calls “false flag operations.”  Who would possibly trust a government to exercise these powers at all, let alone do so in secret, with virtually no oversight, and outside of any cognizable legal framework? : “Strategic Influence and Disruption.”

Whatever else is true, no government should be able to engage in these tactics.

Spies Seek to Control the Internet

Snowden Docs Reveal Spies Snooped on YouTube and Facebook

The government can tap into the cables carrying the world’s web traffic at will and spy on what people are doing on some of the world’s most popular social media sites, including YouTube.  British cyber spies demonstrated a pilot program to their U.S. partners in 2012 in which they were able to monitor YouTube in real time and collect addresses. Called “Psychology A New Kind of SIGDEV” (Signals Development), the presentation includes a section that spells out “Broad real-time monitoring of online activity” of YouTube videos, URLs “liked” on Facebook, and Blogspot/Blogger visits.  The monitoring program is called “Squeaky Dolphin.”  “Governments have no business knowing which YouTube videos everyone in the world is watching.”

The Story of Life

The story of Jesus
So easy to explain
After they crucified him,
A woman, she claimed his name
The story of Jesus
The whole Bible knows
Went all across the desert
And in the middle, he found a rose

There should be no questions
There should be no lies
He was married ever happily after
All the tears we cry
No use in arguing
All the use to the man that moans
When each man falls in battle
His soul it has to roam
Angles of heaven
Flying saucers to some,
Made Easter Sunday
The name of the rising sun

The story is written
By so many people who dared,
To lay down the truth
To so very many who cared
To carry the cross
Of Jesus and beyond
We will guide the light
This time with a woman in our arms
We as men
Can’t explain the reason why
The woman’s always mentioned
At the moment that we die
All we know
Is God is by our side,
And he says the word
So easy yet so hard

I wish not to be alone,
So I must respect my other heart
Oh, the story
Of Jesus is the story
Of you and me
No use in feeling lonely,
I am searching to be free

The story
Of life is quicker
Than the wink of an eye
The story of love
Is hello and goodbye
Until we meet again.

Jesus Christ Superstar (RockStar)

June 15, 2017

He walked on water man.  He made that water wine.
And then he drank with people you and me would just cast aside
He did his people good.  Just like he said he would.
And in the blink of an eye, he gave a blind man sight

His love was thunder in the sky
His roar was lions in the night
When he spoke he always drew a crowd
His message was his lifestyle
He gave us everything and more
He was the party we’ve been looking for
Maybe, just maybe…. Jesus was rockstar!

Can I get a witness?

He brought the dead to life
He rose when called to rise
There was a passion in his eyes and it spread like wildfire

His love was thunder in the sky
His roar was lions in the night
When he spoke he always drew a crowd
His message was his lifestyle
He gave us everything and more
He was the party we’ve been looking for
Maybe, just maybe…. Jesus was rockstar!

Can I get a witness?

Father I have sinned a million sins
Save me from this world you put me in
So come on. Come on. Bring Jesus back again.
JOHN 3:16-17
For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him,
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world,
to condemn the world;
but that the world through him,
might be saved.

His love was thunder in the sky
His roar was lions in the night
When he spoke he always drew a crowd
His message was his lifestyle
He brought the fire and the light
He wrote the songs you can’t deny
He rocked so hard, I can hear him now
He brought the house down!

He gave us everything and more
He was the party we’ve been looking for
Maybe, just maybe
I said maybe, just maybe
Maybe, maybe, maybe

Jesus was a rockstar
Can I get a witness?
Jesus was a rockstar
Can I get a witness?


Lord Is It Mine

June 11, 2017

I know that there’s a reason why I need to be alone
I know that there’s a silent place that I can call my own
Is it mine?
Oh, Lord, is it mine?

You know I get so weary from the battles in this life
And as many times it seems that you’re the only hope in sight
Is it mine?
Oh, Lord, is it mine?

When everything’s dark, and nothing seems right,
You don’t have to win, and there’s no need to fight

I never cease to wonder at the cruelty of this land
But it seems a time of sadness is a time to understand
Is it mine?
Oh, Lord, is it mine?

When everything’s dark, and nothing seems right,
You don’t have to win, and there’s no need to fight

If only I could find a way
To feel your sweetness through the day
The love that shines around me could be mine
So give us an answer, won’t you?
We know what we have to do
There must be a thousand voices trying to get throughLord Is It Mine - Believe +

Yes – Lift Me Up

May 27, 2017

Look around – Got no place to stay.
God I hate this town, depending on the day.
You lift me up, you lift me down – Alright, OK.

While I got no life, I got no hope;
I’m falling in love.
Help me through the fight;
Help me with tonight – I’m calling.

What to do I find it hard to know;
Lord, the walk is not the one I chose…

Lift me up and turn me over;
Lead me on into the dawn.
Take me to the highest mountain;
Tie me up, love in a storm.
Have you decided on my fortune?
Facing the future in your eyes,
With your imperial behaviour
We fight amidst the battle cries.

Open doors – They may be closed to me;
The fire’s still burning in my heart…

What to do I find it hard to know;
I want to turn my life around…

To Believe

January 19, 2017

Imagine visions, hearing, over years: there will be a renewed future.  Imagine resultant periods of unique success, of unbreakable hope and various inspirational/spiritual peaks.  Imagine, after more years, finding yourself immersed in total turmoil (and ongoing diabolicaattacks)
while
 reaching a point where virtually everything earthly was lost: realization of fruition had not come to pass.  Imagine (with the latter) not being able to see any path for it to ever be fulfilled (as now) – though at times (all along the way) occurrences were sent as a means to enhance remembrance of the original.  Thereupon, imagine another one, but without specifics – and soon crying out because it still seemed absolutely impossible.  Then, imagine a reply: To Believe – without knowing. . . .

Relentless (CrossFire)

October 16, 2016

(Audio Visions)
Relentless

In the time we spent together
Many words have passed between
And the feelings that we shared are all behind us now
‘Cause a change has come upon me
And I’m surely not the same
There is so much more than what we feel and live every day

[Chorus]
Relentless, unchanging
Though the world is still before me now
I’m seeing forever
I will keep my heart and mind with you
So joyously I’m waiting for the day

In a single timeless moment
When the old was cast away
The new was born into a world of simple joy
And my life is still for living
Though it’s seen through different eyes
And the knowledge of the truth’s
A burden easy to bear

[Bridge]
It’s drawing so near
It’s shrouded in mystery
Histories fall, the end of an age
The feeling we’re waiting for, hoping for
Now, the time to come alive
The end to which we strive
Will soon arrive

Now the gift is truly given
If you only would receive
For you’re standing in the crossroads
And you can’t turn back
Though we can’t conceive forever
And it’s sometimes hard to care
Our lives do not compare to what’s awaiting us there

The Promise, the Manna, the Bread

September 23, 2016

One Mind

One Mind

Once, there were thoughts of being filled – before finding.
One side made every attempt to keep the earthly forever blinding.

Many drinks were sought in such a place – before knowing.
Then, upon tried chapters, the Spirit poured – like a river flowing.

“Would you give up?” – (finally) as a question.
Years followed – each passing with many a lifting lesson.

“These are the greatest gifts” –
exclaimed as they were bestowed.
“What more could be given –
(in return) for these triumphs and throes?”

This is the Promise (which always mends).
This is the Manna (which eternally sends).
This is the Bread (which never ends).

Guide and Carry Me: “Amen”

September 9, 2016

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed by Thy Name –
The King of kings, Lord of lords,
Thy Name the same.

My leader, my brother,
My Savior, my friend –
Guide and carry me,
Until that beginning as an end.

Our Father, The Creator,
The Holy, The One –
Lift me to that time
When eternity has only begun.

Hallowed be Thy Names,
Thy Swords to come;
Hallowed are The Words
Which shall never be undone.

Amen - Again
