Unveiled and Free

And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. At that moment the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth quaked and the rocks were split.

Matthew 27:50-51

I don't want to be a beauty

by the standards of this world

I don't desire riches nor to

be its nice sweet girl

I don't try to be a rebel

I don't aim to hurt nor please

I just live to be myself

In He who sets me free

I won't take up a posture

pose or wear some mask

I won't be false nor two-faced

I'll be honest when I'm asked

What I want is to be Real

authentic and sincere

Flaws and gifts and warts and all

with no shame to conceal

I will not mop the blood

that many try to hide

brush dirt under the rug

because of shame and pride

I will not obey fear

Or cover Christ’s scarred hands

Inherit their veneers

that white-wash cups for wrath

When we self-delude

we hold out God's good grace

from justifying us

and redeeming every ache

Scurrying in shadows

is not for sons of God

Or daughters with his bow

Who know His faithful rod

When we kiss the darkness

We can't glory in The Light

Don't be afraid of truth

I know The Way, the Life

Every prayer is hindered

Where sin has been concealed

When you have my Redeemer

it's better to be Real

What is there to hide

when Christ makes all things new?

Please remove your costume

I'm going to be True



I couldn't help but splash my humble winter path way with the light of the glory of the risen Son!

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Cor. 3:18

Be a peacemaker. Not a peacekeeper.

The devil is nice. Christ is kind.



📖 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 1 Peter 2:16

📖 Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. Romans 10:13

📖 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good. Titus 1:16⠀⠀⠀

📖 He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: “ ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Mark 7:6⠀⠀

📖 There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. Luke 12:2⠀

📖 “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand." Luke 8

Entering the Kingdom of Heaven means leaving the world behind. In Matthew 25, the wise virgins purchase oil. The foolish virgins procrastinate. Does that mean that Christ is not free? Spurgeon said, if I find within God's Word, two truths I cannot rectify, I believe them both. It is Yeshua's sinless blood, that bought us the power of God and the grace to walk in His holiness with joyful surrender.

This corner is no dump for my emotions, humble as it is. Like the woman with the alabaster jar, Christ makes no mistake at this bleeding heart and rooftop song. Make no mistake at these scars. They aren't mine. I am not my own. They are my Savior's. I am not ashamed of them.

When we are crucified with Christ, the fruit of suffering all that he promises in his Word, kindles the fire of love for Him, as we keep it. Jesus learned obedience by suffering. A servant is not greater than his Master. Nor a student above his teacher.

Obedience to the Lord and delighting in his Word unmasks devastating truths around us, that cause many disciples to stagnate in the shallows of faith. Fear of being alone or regarded as Jesus was, causes many a potential saint to stagnate at the narrow gate. Where there's company. And it's comfortable. And under God's wrath.

I bless you with the shedding of this perishing world, that God so loved, for the eternal Home that we were made for, but once left. I bless you with the Word of Life. I remove despair, when you shine and death is exposed, for this is how we are are led home and take others with us. I bless you with nourishing those who know they are broken, lost, humble and in need of a Savior. I bless you with taking the deposit of ridicule and accusation into the bank of your inheritance.

The pilgrimage of the heart up the mountain of Christ and him crucified, and his resurrection that tore the veil, so that we may be One with the Father, is costly. Though none go with you, shall you still follow?
