I long to be away

Posted by appolus on September 20, 2016

I have flown in heavenly places
Yet still confined to earthly spaces
There’s a part of me that has touched the skies
And with each touch another part dies

Two forces yet only one eternal part
One love that has forever filled my heart
The glory of the crimson tide forever changing me
Lifts me up then takes me down into the glassy sea

I stand enshrined in this mortal coat
Yet the Love of God itself keeps me afloat
Adrift and carried by the crimson tide
The Bridegroom ever beckons home the bride

In this world but surely not a part
To another Kingdom belongs my longing heart
This other Kingdom burns inside of me
As it carries me into the glassy sea

As I approach the glory to be found
I find myself once more on Holy ground
A place where I will find eternity
A place that lies in the midst of the glassy sea

Oh longing heart with wings you must take flight
And lift me from perpetual fleshly night
And deliver me to where my Saviour reigns
A place where at my feet lies broken chains

Shooting and killing, the police and military all over the place trying to control this out of control situation. I,m tired brother Frank. I,m tired of this old world. “To another Kingdom belongs my longing heart”. Thanks for these comforting words precious brother…….Robert

      Ah dear brother you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hear your spirit in your words Robert. Oh Lord my God, my ever living Father in heaven above, in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus I come before your throne tonight and lift up my brother here before the throne of grace and mercy. Will you give my brother rest Lord, will you take Him to a place of rest that lies somewhere within your loving arms. Without you Lord we could do nothing at all. Without you Lord our world would simply crumble away like a mountain crumbling into the sea. Our sky would fall. Our purpose would cease to be. You Lord are the very reason that we breathe. Oh breath of heaven come and refresh my brothers soul. The day is far spent Lord and your time is at hand, even at the door. Soon Lord the saints will stand before you and cry Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty. I pray that this praise rises in the chest of my brother and as it rises I pray that it lifts up his spirit within him. Give him Lord, a glimpse of your glory that he may run and not grow weary, that he may walk and not faint, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour………………………bro Frank
