IAM-God of the Present

IAM, Yahweh, ABBA, art card

I am right here

I am in your now

I am very near

I am right here

My word is clear

I keep my vow

I am right here

I am in your now

Triolet

God says His name is I AM

He is God of the present, the now.

He says:

“When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard for you because I am not there.

My Name is not: I WAS.”

“When you live in the future with its unknowns and fears, it is hard for you because I am not there.

My Name is not: I WILL BE.”

“But when you live in this moment, it is not hard, because I am here. My Name is: I AM.”

Faces

Sketches of faces
Face sketches by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Faces are all around me

Young, old, dark, light,

As far as I can see

Faces are all around me

Some sad, some friendly

Some mad, some drawn tight

Faces are all around me

Young, old, dark, light,

Triolet

There are so many faces we see daily. Sometimes I don’t take the time to look at every face but other times I make a point to focus on each face I see. I guess that’s called “People Watching” and it can be very interesting.

“Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

When my flesh groans instead

“Abide in Me” He said

“Wait on Me, do not dread,

Endure pruning’s pain”

Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

Triolet

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:4

One Step at a Time

Steps, feet climbing steps

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true

Life is taking on different tone

Stepping out of my comfort zone

I’m out sharing, not sitting alone

Lots to see, lots to do

Stepping out of my comfort zone

It’s difficult, thats true

Encourage Yourself

Never Give Up painting

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Don’t lose hope before you begin

Some days when you just can’t win

Keep tryin’ and make yourself grin

Pray for God’s strength to stand up

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Abstract or Fact

Two Images of grease on a grill. One original and one digitally enhanced

Don’t believe all you see

Things aren’t always as they seem

What looks real may not be

Don’t believe all you see

Could be false or reality

Could be true or just a dream

Don’t believe all you see

Things aren’t always as they seem

Triolet

My mom used to always say “Don’t believe anything you read and only half of what you see”.

I was reminded of this today as I took a photo last night of the left over cooled grease on my grill. I had cooked a hamburger for supper and when I went to clean the grill the grease and bits of leftover cheese had formed an interesting pattern, I thought, so I snapped a picture and just for fun put the image into one of the photo enhancing apps I have to see what would result if I edited it a bit.

The result was quite awesome!

What transformed was somewhat of a celestial looking image I thought. Certainly not something that looked like grease and cheese on a grill! 😊

Goes to show mom was right. Things aren’t always as they seem or look like.

What do you think?
