Heart and Goal


A calm hour with God is worth
a whole lifetime with man.
-Robert Murray McCheyne- 

What goal fires our purpose?
Is it temporal or eternal?

 1 Peter 1:24
For, "All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flowers of the field;
 the grass withers and the flowers fall,


So much seeks our full attention
Weak or strong are not immune
To the ethereal dimension
Of the dreamer’s private room
Where no mortal master governs
What no guard can chaperone
In thought’s invisible caverns
Where the heart becomes a throne

…where the one who reigns upon it
Breaks through flesh and blood façade
By the way we weigh life’s moments
Serving either Self or God
By the object of our wonder
By the comforts that console
Where each moment draws asunder
The gap between Heart and Goal
