James 5:16 “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
1 John 1:8 “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”
Isaiah 53:6 “all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Even when we mean well
this side of glory
still a bit of a smell
in this venue
what is real?
who is sincere?
and can anyone really tell?
words like fragrant aromas
masking white washed tombs decay
typing on keyboards in comas
self entranced by superfluous fluidity of verbage
Using scripture like sanctified deodorant
When the bath has not yet occurred.
that eventually will only pool in swamps
bogged down and stagnant in slow gaseous breakdowns
released as belches of offensive odors
perceived to be repulsive, repugnant, unacceptable
And even while knowing this
We somehow unconsciously discover new ways
to rail against it
Impatience our enemy
Our undoing in tendencies to embrace
The jumping of the guns
Every language spells GOD differently
But that doesn’t stop God
From being God
Nothing or no one can.
