A POEM ON WORSHIP

Psalm 150:6
Let everything that has Breath praise the Lord!

A POEM ON WORSHIP

Worship is like forming a bridge between heaven and earth

Except we don’t have to cross, Jesus took care of this on the Cross.

And yes, this chasm has been closed, it doesn’t even exist anymore.

We just have to exhale

And release the breath of life that He already breathed in us

To Glorify Him in the knowledge that He is already in us!

~Amen~

May God bless you all and may He give you the revelation with which this poem was written!

Deeper Reflections

Deeper Reflections

Do not pass up an opportunity to think and become aware,
life is all around you, beating, moving, vibrating, resonating;
there are patterns, currents, and movements from which we can learn;
learn to be become alive, and wake up to something worth dying and living for…something beautiful!

THE GIFT OF LIFE

 

There you are,

you have always been there,

right next to be, right before me and behind me……deep inside of me

and my best strategy has always been to hide, that you would not see me…..or my shame

but this strategy got old and quickly exhausted me, because after seeing the magnitude of your love

I can not keep running or hiding from you, although at times I can’t help but to run and hide from myself

I had to look beyond the shame, because that’s what You did, and you always set the example

You looked at me and You saw Your son, and before You saw your son, You gave Your son, and now………You call me Your son

that I may be remembered, that I may be restored, and that I may have a place in your kingdom

Thank You Lord, for you your magnificent Love…thank You for remembering me, for extending your hand out to me, and taking me by my filthy hands. Where the enemy found me with guilt and shame, You found me with grace and mercy, and while the enemy covered me with darkness and lies of deception, your word became a lamp unto my feet and covered me with truth and light……

 and there I stood, observing as you consistently cast all my fears, all my confusions, all my deceptions, all of my sins and sorrows, as far as the east is to the west…. that I may not see or think about these things any longer. Your love freed me, and continues to free me in the presence of my enemies, from the illusions of this world, from the vanity of the world, from the empty shell in which many find a fake glory…for it has been well stated that everything under the sun is vanity!…. but you oh Lord, you have protected my identity, that I may receive a full-inheritance, for you completely forgave me and opened my eyes that I may be awake for you, therefore I will see eternity. I will see eternity because of your love, your abundant radiant magnificent love

like rivers of living water flowing deep inside of me

oceans of Love like waves crashing right in front of me

every single sin cast away from me like scales falling off of me

from the setting of the sun to the sunrise

purified, mesmerized, and baptized

by the purity of your Son’s precious blood

here I stand

constantly unwrapping the gift that you have placed before me

LIFE…..

Thank You God for the Gift of Life that you have graciously bestowed upon me!

THE SONG INSIDE MY HEART

 

There’s a song deep inside this fragile heart

a song that resonates and never seems to stop

It’s melody takes the form of vibrations in His heart

as it yearns to be ample and amplified through the dark

 

This song could calm the biggest storm

it could flood an empty cup of thirst

speak of life or death

and has the capacity to give birth

 

And although it plays inside this new yet broken heart

it was never created to be kept inside

Infact, it doesn’t even belong to me,

but it’s very essence, moves me

 

This breath of life that keeps me alive,

This living word inside of me,

Was created to be screamed,

To the ends of the world, and for Eternity!

My dearest friends,

I hope this poem is not just a blessing for you, but an inspiration, and a work of art that you could meditate on. With that said, I challenge you to let Gods living word become the song inside your hearts. You will find that when you play this song, it will only produce life in your life and in the lives of those around you. May God bless you always! With much love, Otto Rene Aleman!

 

 

THE SACRIFICE OF FREEDOM

 

So…the other day I was contemplating just how much was sacrificed so that you and I could be free and live in freedom, all the blood that was shed, the tears that where cried, the torture that was taken, and then I thought of Jesus Christ and the most painful weapon method of dying in Rome (the crucifix), and I said to myself, “man, we do not honor the sacrifice of freedom!” So…if you are made to be free, but you are living in chains, slavery, or bondage, this poem is for you! I pray that you would embrace freedom because it has been fully paid for you, if you are clueless about what I mean, find a pastor and ask him some questions!

 

Here we are

made to be free and feel alive,

but instead feeling sorry as if living a lie…

 

Our devotion to things that matter is not the same,

are we losing our edge and slowly going insane?

How can we give our time when it is not ours to give anymore?

would this be like the waves reaching their limit on the shore?

 

perhaps we are missing the boat and this is how it’s going down in history,

but isn’t God the reason and the marvelous mystery of this misery?

without a question!!!

 

So..No…….. this is not how it is going to be,

 

We have to remind ourselves that this is the reason He died

that we may be free and fully alive,

He is the victory in the coming of this age

and He is waging war against those things that cause us to rage.

 

He gave it all for us to full fill our purpose and call,

it’s time for us to stand up when we fall and honor this victory, the very freedom of it all!

 

So… if you are sitting there like a trader

bowing down to idols and in a routine of religious practices that are dead

the challenge is to open His book and read the truth of what Jesus Christ already did for you instead

You should not sit in the dark without having a clue

But instead embrace this freedom, to know your maker, who’s been patiently waiting for you!

 

And to share something amazingly beautiful,

You will come to find out that He holds the stars and the oceans in their place for you!

Unashamed

 

Have you ever drowned or gravitated towards something beautiful?

I am guilty as charged for drowning and gravitating towards beautiful things!

Clearly pure and profound,  something that is worth my time!

Breath-taking like an ocean reflecting light in different angles,

Marvelous like a clear blue sky with various tonalities in its depth,

If it was an ocean I would not mind drowning in it,

If it was the sky I would not mind gravitating towards it,

But no, this time it was neither, but I took a dive right in…..

and trust me,  it was not a sin.

God is waiting for you to take such actions when you encounter His presence. You do not need to be ashamed of such a beautiful gift, instead, learn to embrace it and let His love in so that He could conquer all these fears and insecurities.

 

 

Restoration

Much like the salty waters of an ocean

that refines its many shells

 

God’s love floods into our empty shell

and refines the core of our being

 

Thank God for the spirit of holiness!

And the wonderful work of His hands!

He is truly Gracious towards us,

and we do not need to be afraid!
