When I look into your eyes
And see my own reflection
When I see what you behold
When you look at me with passion

Do I see a mess?
A mind tortured by confusion?
A creature that strives
For perfection and acceptance

If so I forgot my glasses
The ones You are wearing
The ones that have a filter
The filter of your blood

Glasses that make everything bright
Glasses that make everything right
A filter that only sees blood
On top of all my imperfections

Your vision is so pure
Your eyes so full of love
I am clothed with beauty
Beauty from above

The beauty of your Son
Now belongs to me
I am clothed with perfection
And that is all you see

“You are all fair my love
There is no spot in you”

One man
That lives for power
One man
That lives for gain

One man
That doesn’t know
The job of a leader
is to serve
Not to subdue

One man
That doesn’t know
How to receive
Or give love
Let that be enough

Let us remember
That one Man once came
Not to judge us for sin
But to bear our shame

The shame of our wrongdoing
Putting our desires above others
Not caring for our neighbours
For others in pain

To live for ourselves
To live for gain
Let us remember
Lest our suffering is in vain

Free Gift



It is done
Paid for
Every part
To the last penny

Every sin
Every crime
Every pain
Every shame

Nothing left over
Not one single stain

You are now pure
You are forgiven
You are made whole
You are redeemed

The price for your life
Fully being paid
A sacrifice was required
It has been made

A life for a life
A tooth for a tooth
Blood for blood
It was the blood of God

For God so loved the world
He gave his only begotten Son
That whoever believes in Him
should not perish
but have eternal life

John 3:16

Jesus told us that all things would be restored.
Before He would come back.
So what things need to be restored?
We would have to look at the beginning when things first started to fall apart and when God’s purpose and intention for mankind and creation became defiled.
Not because God changed his mind about us but because we didn’t cooperate with him anymore.

Life on earth was never meant to be separated from God.
It was never supposed to be alienated from it’s Maker.
We were never supposed to wander though life alone, being in the unknown about God’s love and intention for us.
When men rebelled against God and chose not to trust him and his good intentions for us a breach was made, by men, not God, between how life was suppposed to be and how we started to live and experience life.
Away from relationship with God.
Away from the fullness and satisfaction He intended us to have.

So the first thing that needs to be resored is our trust in God. Our relience on him.
God showed us we could trust him by dying for us on a cross.
By doing that He showed us his devotion towards us even when we sinned and turned away from him.
He showed us that He still loved us and would never stop pursuing out heart.
To win us for him so we would have relationship with him again.
I believe all the other things will be restored from there.
When we truly see and realise what He did for us and accept it we allow him access in our lives. Access He won’t give himself if we don’t give him permission.
Because He values our will.
Because He wants us to want him.

Then He can heal our body and every hurt in our soul.
Then He can fill us with his love that is a consuming fire that changes us from the inside and makes us like him. Full of love and passion.
Then, I believe, righteousness will sprout up in the earth and justice will be done.
Then we become selfless. And yet still love ourselves.
Then we will fight for the hungry and poor to be fed.
We will go after solutions for the major problems in the earth and find them.
Because our heart is set on it.
Because we don’t live for ourselves anymore but love others equally. With the same measure of love that we love ourselves. Not less.
Then there can be peace on all levels, because we’re not set on WHO’s right but on WHAT’s right.
Because we don’t need to strive for approval and acceptance anymore. Because we already found this in God and his love is truly enough.

Love Like Honey

By Karen Ladage 1/2021

There is a Love as thick and heavy as Honey –
Glistening Golden, full of Life and Healing;
Dripping down upon our cares
smothering our concerns in its relentless waves
of sweet Grace.

There is a Love as sweet and gentle as Rain,
Drip, drip, dripping from the sky.
Quenching the thirsty earth with its revival dew,
Releasing a refreshing that nourishes the soul.

There is a Love as strong and unquenchable as Fire
It cleanses, it heals, it will not be denied.
It pursues, it overtakes, it encompasses, it takes hold.
It draws you to Itself to cause you to be inflamed
by a passion that consumes.

There is a Love that exists,
beyond time and space,
beyond reason or understanding –
that would undertake the most unimaginable feat possible:
to translate That Which Exists beyond time and space
and embody IT in human veil.

There is a Love. There is Love. There is LOVE
Love that accepts. Love that heals.
Love that reaches out for you.
Love that sees -all the hurts and wounds and pain
and would heal, and make you a healer.

There is Love like Honey

The purpose of life
Of yours of mine
Is it to create the universe
The earth and the sky

Or was its existence before us
Laid down for our surprise

The purpose of men
Is it to create or behold
Or may we enjoy all of Eden
With it’s Maker inside

Dare we be and behold
And trust our Maker
To inspire us with spirit
His walking by our side

Dare we let that be enough
To hold on to His love
And not let our pride refrain us
That puts up a fight

Dare we accept His free gift
His peace around and inside
His hands outstretching
Do we lay ours within

Free Gift



Can I be living
Without doing something
Without making a product
That eyes can see or hands can hold

Can I be of value
Without writing things down

Can I be someone
When I look to the sky
When I wonder at nature
Or anything passing by

Can I be of value
When enjoying this life
When seemingly doing nothing
But beholding the sky

Can I be living
When seeing and feeling
I’m surrounded by life

When coming up rashly
Unexplainable joy
Excitement that’s above me
Captured by all

Is it enough
To feel I am living
To behold what I see
To be happy inside

Is it enough
Not to create anything
To marvel at nature
And what men had in mind
Beautiful buildings
Awesome creations
On top of it all
Life that’s inside

Is it enough
To have my identity
In being creature
Above my creating
Above playing God

To be loved and be held
To be the joy of heaven
To be an act of Deity
To be Someone’s delight

Do I accept the gift of life
Embrace it with thankfulness
Do I know Who’s I am
Is it enough?

Is it enough to be living
To enjoy what I’ve got
Or do I keep on striving
To become what I’m not

To become what I cannot be
To become what I don’t even want
To become my own god

Am I allowed
To be a creature
To enjoy life He gave me
And let God do His job

Life is a gift

You can’t earn it

You might disagree
Is not our whole society based on merits?
Unfortunately it is
Thing is that everything we can do
Comes from the potential that was given us at birth

It was all a gift
We have to work to develop these gifts, true
But even the ability to do that was given

So do we keep priding ourselves on our achievements?
Or can we live with humility
And give honor to whom it is truly due
Which in the end is always God

I’ve heard it say
That our value does not come from what we do
But what we do comes from who we are

We were made with value
And what we do or don’t do can’t influence this
We cannot add to our value by what we do
Nor can we diminish it by our mistakes

Our value is constant
And so is God’s love for us
We cannot mess up this love
Nor can we increase it
It’s already more than what we need

God will never withhold his love from us
No matter how we live
But are WE withholding HIM?

The bible says God opposes the proud
What does that mean? Why?

If we try to earn love and acceptance
We not only give honor to ourselves
For what was given to us freely
But we also block our heart
From receiving the depth of his love for us
Which is not based on merit
But freely given

Life is a gift

You can’t earn it even if you did everything perfect
That ability still comes from Him

You were made from love
The love of God

You don’t have anything to give him back for that
Except what he gave you first

So why don’t give him your life?
Give him what already belongs to him anyway

For he made you
And loves you
And wants you to experience the fullness of life
The way he intended it to be

With him
Because apart from his love
We really are handicapped
And we will always try
To find love and fulfillment
From things and people that can’t give it to us

He is the source of our life
In him we live and move
and have our being

So why not connect with this source
So we can live life fully

If you are ready
Then pray this prayer with me

Dear Jesus

Thank you for dying for me
Thank you for paying the price
That righteousness required
To settle the debt of my sin

I accept this free gift
Of forgiveness
And with your help
Because your spirit now lives inside of me
I turn from my life of sin
Of pride and selfishness
And I completely give it to you

I hold nothing back
And I give you access to every part of me
So you can change me
And make me the way you intended me to be

Show me your ways
And help me to hear your voice
So I will never turn from your side


WELCOME  into God’s family!

If you prayed this prayer and meant it
You are now adopted as his child

You are his forever
Nothing can ever separate you from him

You are a whole new creation
The bible calls it “born again”

You now have a seat in heaven
You have dual citizenship
You live on the earth in your body
But your spirit is in heaven

This is possible because
The natural and the spiritual
Are interwoven

Heaven and hell are not
Some places far away
They are inside

And hopefully we chose heaven
Rather than hell
To be the place we live from
To be the source of our life

Your body may look the same
And you might still have sinful desires
Or addictions
(many experienced they were broken off right away!)
But your spirit is made new and perfect
Without spot, no blemish

And when you learn to live
more and more from your spirit
which is now one with God’s spirit
(whom we call the Holy Spirit)
your life begins to change

You become the person
You were made to be
Pure and holy
Loving and kind

And most important
Living in harmony with you Maker
Who is the Lover of your soul

Nothing and no one can ever come close
To the fulfilment that HE gives

So welcome once again
You are now a child of God

Try to connect with other believers
Your spiritual brothers and sisters
Since they will help you to grow in your faith
And teach you spiritual principles
You will need

But most important
Spent time every day with God
Sit down and talk with him
Don’t make it a monologue
He wants to talk back

So listen for his voice
When you quiet all the noise
All the other voices in your head
that try to get your attention
you will hear His

A book that really helped me to hear his voice is

Love’s Price

God is like the sun
We cannot look straight into his face

So How could Love have a companion
The companion of men
When we can’t even look at him from a distance
Let alone being near

At the beginning of our time
When men could see his face
They decided not to
And go their own way

And so they became dark within

Then how could God share his love
With his newly made companion
If this companion left his side

Even this possibility God had in mind

So before creating men
God already made a plan

God had a meeting
Where God the father told his plan
If men were to reject him
Jesus (his son) would rescue them

He would take in all darkness
That had come over men
Take it all on him
Drink everything

Death had power
Over those walking in sin
And it was the sin of men
Jesus now carried within

So Jesus allowed death to take him
By the hands of men

It was all in God’s plan

Jesus drank men’s darkness
So men could receive back the Light
The light of God
That was to be the light of men

This could not have happened
When Jesus would have sinned
But there was no fault in Jesus
And the master of darkness could not hold him

So Jesus rose from the dead
And set many captives free
With them you and me

Everyone who chooses to walk by his side
He gave a promise for even after this life  

That by his side we’ll live on forever
And now God lives inside
And we may look at his face once again

So God gave an invitation
To those who turned away

Accept the life of Jesus
He freely gave to save
It was the greatest price
Love ever paid

Free Gift

Love’s expression

(What is love
When not given away)

Outside of time
Eternity exists
And always has been
This eternity is God

God is love

God of Three Persons
Yet all are One
This way God in itself could be love
And share love within himself

Love grows and wants to express
So Love made a plan

He made men

Wars and fights


Where is this Love?

Hard work and labor
No relief

No mercy to be seen

Who are these men
And Who is this God
How can we be loving
When turned from His side

God had a plan
A future in mind
Not to be striving
For men to obey

God had a plan
To express what’s inside
God had a plan
To be in men’s life

To love and behold
His awesome creation
To love and behold
What He had in mind

To be loved and beheld
By His own creation
To exchange this love
To be godly intertwined

An expansion of love
To future generations
Interwoven eternally
To be each other’s delight

Free Gift

The Journey

(that never ends)

Step step step
Phoeh I’m tired
Step step step
I wish I was already there
Step step step
Do I ever get there?
Step step step
This road never ends

Step step step
Hey look a tiger
Step step step
Flowers, that’s nice
Step step step
Wow! Do you see that river?
Step step step
Nice, the sun shining down on me
Step step step
Auch, that hurts
Step step step
Gentle rain falling down on me
Step step step
Someone is walking beside me
Step step step
This is fun
Step step step
Every mile is different
Step step step
Isn’t life beautiful?

Step step step
This is how life was meant to be
Walking together
Walking the road of eternity

So, where are we going?
I believe we were all made with the same destination,
but not all of us are getting there.
Why? Because we have free choice,
and God is too kind to force us where we do not want to go.
As they say, “it takes two to tango”.

I also believe the journey itself is part of the destination.
It’s ongoing and part of the fun is to keep discovering
new things and reaching new hights.
So what are those things we keep discovering?
I believe it’s all about the heart of God.
God’s heart for us, his creation.
