Salvation's Painting

Salvation's Painting

I cannot recall a time of security
Where I could rest, or simply trust
In finding purity from worldly perspectives
For their pessimism disses pixie dust
I must believe and conceive
The true transcendent picture
Where the Creator coversย 
The fractures and fissures
Of sin's unideals, with His splendor
Hidden beneath evil's grief
In rudimentary wretching rust
Amidst sweet illusions of grandeur
I attempt to sort through to the truth
All in honest, noble pursuit
Admiring only art portraits of love in life
God's genuine masterpiece paintings
Scattered casually among the fakesย 
Left to decipher the real genius at work
I barely grasp the brushstrokes of His design
Of where He slyly decided I should fit in
I blush behind humbled notions of my chagrin
Never again would I want to let Him down
Nor dilute my Lord's chosen chromatic colors
On my personality's art paletteย 
Assuredly, I prefer to be a background theme
But He places me in the forefront by His grace
What will my finished portrait look like?
Somehow, will His light shine upon my face?
I hope in my completion, I become perfect
As a completely converted creation
Reborn, into whaterver is His Love's intention
Perhaps as salvation's painting
Placed within Heaven's art gallery
As a part of God's extended collection
Where His radiance of redemption
At least gets praising recognition
For changing my life, in honorable mention

HI Greg...Awww...Thank you.ย  I feel so honored that you look for me and Tony's poems.ย  That means so much.ย  I wish I could be on here more, but I have a lot going on right now with our wedding plans, the kids still out of school, and working with my publisher as I also work on a new book.ย  I always take my faith in God seriously and find inspiration in that which motivates me.ย  I am flatteredย  you call this one a masterpiece...I think that God looks at us as his masterpieces...seeing our potential and hoping we too will recognize our artistic colors and be the portrait He creates us to be....and someday, we will all face our Creator and know the full plan...But for now, it is nice to reflect upon what His will for our lives are and to try to discern His presence in a world that presents many pictures for us to look at and can confuse us with their depictions....But if we can really discern which art is from God, His work can really come alive in us....but final revealing complete after this life.....I think of us as an art piece in progress.....lolย  Love n Hugs

Cherie
this splendid creation of your mind and soul is woven with silken threads of purity, embroidered with diamonds of grace and bordered with brocades of heavenly beauty.

Words will fall short no matter how much I compliment.

Cherie, this poem reflects back on you as a person. It clearly demarcates good from evil, fake from real and how you put all your hopes on the Master ( Almighty) God.The imagery you have created ,virtually took me for a stroll to heavens looking at this magnanimous and most beautiful art gallery.ย 
You are a shining glory of Cosmo ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

God bless you for this talent of expression.
๐Ÿ•Š and ๐Ÿ’•

My Dear Cherie,

This brilliant masterpiece moved me deeply.ย  Feeling your passion for God, and my passion for the creation of Art, I combined the two in a poem which I just published, of course, inspired by you.ย  It is called "The Museum Of The Master".
I can always count on you, for a plethora of journeys to my innermost self.

All my love,
Larry xxx

Hi dear Larry....Oh wow!ย  What an honor that you were inspired to do your poem, "The Museum Of The Master" after reading my poem..I too love art and it was natural for me to think of God's investment in our creation as His artwork in progress to become His final masterpiece in a gallery in Heaven.ย  I cannot wait to read your poem...Thank you for always understanding my heart and intent in my writing...Much love to you and Linda...xo
