Illusions (poem by me)

Life in this body
Careful how you handle it
Seems to be long and sturdy
Appears as concrete
Strong, durable, tough, rugged
But is actually glass.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight… —1Corinthians 3:19

A relationship
to the Lord seems virtuous
Unbeknownst to onlookers
It’s a buoy at sea
Realized only by those
who swim in deeper waters.

As we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. —2Corinthians 4:18

Awed by Angels (poem by me)

I felt nothing spectacular,
As I entered the cathedral,
I saw nothing supernatural,
Nothing good and nothing evil.

Then, as if my eyes were opened,
I noticed angels—six in all,
Standing still as if frozen,
Each measuring twenty feet tall.

Their appearance was like glass,
Their backs arched against beams,
They watched over our mass,
It felt like a waking dream.

Then, a thought leaped in my mind,
If His messengers inspire such awe in me,
How will I feel when my life is resigned,
And I stand in the presence of God The Almighty?

When [the Son] had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names. —Hebrews 1:3-4 NLT
