Shallow Dilemma

From my Love’s mind I have read teaching me to dread… my death as little as my bed… the true Precept bled… that human concepts be fed. Only of human mind is human dread… surviving is my holy curiosity instead. From my love’s mind I have read… “Oh death where is thy sting” doth not disturb holy sleep upon precept bed… Selah!

    Great words John, has an other worldly feel to it and the last two lines really hit hard.

    pausing to reflect upon these dynamic words Moses.. during the night last night I read Psalm 29 .. led by H.S. and it was all about God's mighty voice.. it was rejuvenating.. so death has been conquered as we know by His Blood.. wonderful rhyme friend...luv..

    If we have love in our hearts, I don't think we need to fear a "sting" of death. It is the people who feed and act upon human concepts that may need to fear our final judgement. Beautiful poem, Moses. Love and blssings, Carolyn

    So very true John,everyone is so afraid of death.But the only thing people need to fear,is the out come of the life they lived while here on earth.If you lived your life by Gods rules,everything will be just fine. :o)

    As I get older I fear death less and less too, Moses. One day I will be in His courts and full of praise. Wow. This really is a shallow dilemma. I thank u for all the contests u sponsored over the past year. I fear I would not have written so many writes about my faith otherwise. You spurred me on... and so I say...thanks!! Gwendolen
